You Knew I'd Go Junkin'!

One of the highlights of a trip to Globe, Arizona is always the antique stores. The town has a couple of good antique malls and numerous shops. So I definitely did some junkin' last Thursday!

This little friend was guarding the door at one of the shops.

The White Porch is always the highlight of my trip.

The White Porch has lots of fun kitchen and primitive antiques along
with clothing, handmade jewelry, and a little bit of everything!

This old cash register came from a beauty salon!

Wish I had one of these vintage Corvettes!

Assorted garden antiques.

This would be quite a find for a Mickey lover!

Craig and I both look at all the old glass bottles and automatically think -- seaglass!

This cowgirl's ready to ride!

Old chairs make great planters!

I think it's a major award!!! (Actually, it's a silver peanut paperweight.)

Nice old dry sink dressed up for fall.

I thought this cage had live canaries until I realized the birds were stuffed!

And these are my rewards from a day of junkin' -- an old coffee can, a cute old nativity, some old Christmas issues of Arizona Highways, and a little aluminum teapot.

As always, great photos, Beck! Hope you have a fabulous time in Bucerias, and I look forward to seeing you in Yelapa!

Thanks for the memories Beck. That "vintage" corvette looks like the "almost new" one I used to own!

Katalina, I'll plan on December 3. I'll probably post a few times from Bucerias, so we can firm it up while I'm there. Once we're in Yelapa, I imagine I'll be off the map -- ha!

Jane, you lucky girl!

Was fun to drive a Corvette back then. Today I'd rather go on Mexican vacations, hitch rides in red taxis, and enjoy your terrific photos.
