All loaded up!!
Well this is what it would look like if it was my car....

Actually, I didnt buy much at all, but it was a great day out, despite the rain and fog!
I love this time of the year here on the mountains.
It is beautiful ,spectacular, and a place never to be seen elsewhere...
Though unfortunately, shop owners prices accomodate international visitors. Us locals rarely shop here!
The top three visiting countries who love to come are India, China, and Canada, and they bring lots of dosh!!
I venture up there about every six months, and although it only takes about half an hour to drive, people and their environment are quite different than the lower mountains.Some are alternative in fashion, lifestyle and quisine. They are not far enough from the city to be classed as country folk, but their attitude is more of an acceptance of individuality.
They also know their antiques, and there is plenty, but heavily priced. Retro is very popular at the moment.
For me, it is just a wonderful way to see what is out there, and what people are prepared to pay...
That being said, Junkstudio doesnt compare with any of the shops I walked into, and I came home with a realistic and comforting approach to my business.
"Junkstudio is all about budget awareness, and for the creative inclined."
