Will junk ever die? Will people stop wanting junk? Is it just a passing fad?
I remember when I was little and my mom decorated with junk...I thought she was crazy. We were the only people I knew that had their TV placed on an old wooden box. Everyone else had an 'entertainment center.' I was kind of embarrased. She also had all kinds of old farm tools hanging on the walls...seriously?
When I got married I wanted everything from Pottery Barn or Pier One. Nothing wrong with these stores, but why did I want something that everyone else in America had?
It was a few years later that I started going to auctions and looked beyond the beautifully stained oak furniture for the chippy, shabby, banged up tables, boxes, and chairs...
