When I found out about a store called Junk, I knew I had to go and check it out. It is located in Williamsburgh, Brooklyn and quite honestly, I can’t remember if I’ve ever been in the area before. Although exploring neighborhoods on foot is one of my favorite things to do, we have so many that it would be nearly impossible to visit everyone. And the neighborhoods are constantly changing;even a year can make a huge difference in what you will see and experience. Williamsburgh has the feel of Soho (Manhattan) and Astoria (Queens), at least to me.
Junk has two locations within a short walking distance of each other. As I approached the front entrance, my heart started beating quickly. I could tell this was going to be my kind of store.
Shelves and shelves of glassware, dishes, vases, need I say more?
I always admired these insulators. If I could have found at least 3 in this color, I would have bought them. Though, not sure just what I would have used them for.
Furniture and lamps galore.
Couldn’t leave without purchasing some, of course.
Pictures and frames lined the balcony,
And here’s a shot from the balcony.
So many interesting things tucked into every square inch of the store.
Oh yeah, remember these?
I know I am dating myself but I imediately slipped into a nolstagic euphoria.
And 45′s too!
There were some things that caught my eye, but I just couldn’t buy. Too many items already waiting their turn in my garage.
Junk is delight for makers or vintage connossieurs. It is a creative breading ground for all your DIY project ideas. You never know what you’re going to find in this treasure trove. If you’re ever in the area, I hope you will have a look for yourself. The addresses are 197 North 9th Street (between Driggs Ave & Bedford Ave)
and 567 Driggs Ave (between 7th & 6th St), Brooklyn, NY 11211
