Collecting “junk” is hotter than ever, Now, with Big City Junk, the undisputed Queen of Junk explores exciting junking opportunities within city limits.
In chapters such as “Tie-Died and Gone to Heaven,” “Fiﬁs on Fifth,” and “Storage House Rules,” Carter celebrates all the stuff that imaginatively challenged people deem to be junk but that can look like found treasure if given a good home—like yours. For everyone who can see the decorative possibilities of cast-off ofﬁce supplies, hotel dishes, deco furniture, and city souvenirs, Carter offers advice on where to ﬁnd the best items, what you should pay, how to think like an urban forager, and how to display your ﬁnds in true junk style.
For city dwellers and their visiting country cousins alike, Big City Junk proves that America’s urban streets can be fertile ground indeed for decorators and bargain hunters.
