Junk shops - stepping back in time by dibzgreasley

Junk shops - stepping back in time

Hello everyone. How are you? Is like treating you well enough? Things are settling with our universities here in South Africa as students want to get their final exams out of the way, but the issue of #FeesMustFall is by no means over.
Anyway, yesterday I managed to get out of town to a country fair and got some photos - at last!
I love junk shops, they take me back in time. So many of the things in this one reminded me of 70s and 80s, many of the items we've had in our houses at one point or another. I also love how the owners of the shops arrange and present the 'junk', I particularly like it when they use windows for display.
Love this interesting shop. I would visit it too. Fav

Fantastic composition and love the way objects have been displayed. Glass against the light always look so attractive. fav

Such an intriguing picture because I can study all the goodies on the shelves, a sort of digital window-shopping experience here! Lovely lighting you caught. So glad you had the chance to get away and do a little communing with your camera.

First of all I just love glass stuff in front of a window, but secondly, there's so much to see here. Great shot!

Great retro stuff Debs, I tend to get lost in the past in these shops. You know the feeling, 'I used to have one of those …'. Hope life stays calm for you, must be a bit scary when things are unsettled.

I love looking at all the things in the window.

So interesting to look at all the trinkets. I would not have been able to resist buying something.

Great places to get lost in. Memories and laughs too.

@888rachel I couldn't either, I bought a small glass bottle for my collection. If you visit Bathurst when you are in Kenton, you will be able to - the shop is called Relix and Thingz!
