A Quarter Century of Junking

My dear friend Joan just emailed me this picture. It's me in 1986. I was visiting Joan and her husband in London. I had spent the morning at a fantastic rummage...The kind where you find a set of vintage dishes with a Paris cafe design. Girls, see the crazed look in my eyes? That is pure junk joy!

I thought it was a good time to share this photo because on Monday, I leave for a 2 week holiday in London. Can't wait to get my grubby hands on some more British goodies. I'll keep you posted...

Hope you have a good holiday,and enjoy yourself.

Just wear all of the clothes you think you'll need for those two weeks. That way you'll have tons of room in your suitcase for goodies! Have a great time, and I wish you lots of junking luck!

I have a pile of hard-on-the-outside suitcases just sitting in my attic if you need them! Pack your clothes in the overnight carry on and reserve the rest of your space for treasures!

You probably won't see this until after you get back, so I hope you had a really swell time! Two weeks is a very civilized amount of time to spend abroad, m'deah!
