Junk Vacation - Part IFebruary 11th, 2009 in member junk
Well, I'm back from the Sunshine State, and had a great time (the weather was a little cool, but that didn't stop us...). On the way down, we stopped in a little town in Georgia for a couple days - it's called Brunswick (near Jekyll Island on the coast) - very quaint, and quite a few antiquing/junking stops to be found.
One of the best stops was a store called "The Piddler's, Inc." (how appropriate for me...). The store (more like a warehouse - "a little piece of junk heaven") has been in business since the 30's, and in the same family since the 60s. Here's a little article about the store - it is sooooo cool! http://www.jacksonville.com/tu-online/stories/121607/geo_225905044.shtml
I wanted to share some pictures - there were THOUSANDS of things - I think a bunch of us could go in there and start building, repurposing, etc...and not run out of materials for a couple years! It was a "junker's" paradise for sure! Hope you enjoy the pictures...
P.S. Since we traveled in a Honda Civic - I had to be choosy about what I bought, so I picked a wonderful wooden piece from an old treadle sewing machine...will share the finished project later.
