So I'm wondering - where do my readers love to shop?  I am a big fan of TJ Maxx, Home Goods, & Marshalls b/c I'm cheap!  I always find some kind of a bargain for me & Jade, the kids, or my house - usually all of the above!  I love purses, shoes, and home decore so these stores fill my addiction perfectly! 

As far as junking goes, I'm a big fan of 3rd Sunday Market in Bloomington, IL.  There is so much there to look at!  I can find junk to fix up for my home, or even finished pieces that are treasures.  From smalls to big cabinets - we usually come home with a truckload.  I wish I had a picture from our last adventure - can you say Clampetts?? 

As far as real antiques - I have been loving the Casey, IL Antique Mall.  I have never physically been there, but my mom loves it.  They send me regular picture emails & oh my gosh the booths are great.  It is much more primitive than my style, but the old peely paint cabinets knock my socks off!  I know I'd find something large to die for there!!  Last Christmas my Dad got my Mom the most amazing kelly green cabinet that is now displayed in her kitchen.  This stuff is expensive - so I can just drool over it now, but some day in some way - I'm going to have some serious antique cabinets rocking in my home!!

In the meantime I'll be updating my home slowly but surely with new finds.  As the old moves out - I think - gosh that was a hideous piece - why didn't I do this sooner!  Then, I fall in love all over again with the new steal I have found!!
