Description:

What a great book. My wife told me to give it to the library book sale, I told her "no-way" I want it, or someone can buy it from me for a hundred bucks. This book is awesome, it's pure americana. Lots of great junk shop pictures, all sorts of great stuff to look at and admire (or laugh at). This is what life is all about. Bookseller Inventory # 003213

About this title:

Synopsis: For anyone who reads the local Pennysaver or swap sheet, for anyone who can't drive by a yard sale without turning in, for anyone on lookout for treasures in Grandma's attic, or for anyone who just likes to collect - welcome to "American Junk," the bible for a new generation of foragers." Author Mary Randolph Carter, herself a passionate "junker, " takes us on a tour of tag sales, auctions, and flea markets around the country, where she and other devotees of the sport have discovered unique and remarkable items that they then transform from bargains to prized booty. She introduces us to and takes us into the homes of these unusually creative people, who share her belief that thrift, economy, and ingenuity translate into high style indeed. There are before-and-after pictures, tips on repair and storage hints on how to bargain, ideas for themed collections and even a list of what to bring on junking expeditions. The author reveals the price of almost every one of the hundreds and hundreds of items pictured, and best of all provides a directory to more than two "junking sites" nationwide. "American Junk" is a one-of-a-kind book for those who appreciate the rare, the idiosyncratic, and the unexpected - those who realize that there are as many kinds of junk as there are individuals.

About the Author: Mary Randolph Carter, author of American Junk, Garden Junk, and American Family Style (all Viking Studio), is the Vice President of Advertising at Polo/Ralph Lauren. Carter lives in New York City and Dutchess County, New York.
