We’ve All Got Our Junk
September 25, 2010 § 1 Comment
Do you know about Junk in Williamsburg? Since I moved to Brooklyn, it has been one of my favorite places to look for … well, junk. The main store is below street level at the corner of Driggs and N 9th St. Everything there looked and felt like it came straight from my grandparents’ basement. Even the musty smell was familiar. All that was missing was mirrored wall paper behind a wet bar and red, white, and green striped shag carpet. Junk was also there for Cesar and I when we wanted to fill our apartment with a mish mash of utensils and break up the monopoly Ikea had on our decor.
This week I discovered Junk’s new store, further down Driggs, out of the basement and much larger. Filled to the brim with cheap items that could so easily become wedding material.
