Calling all Junkers

I have a question for you.

In order to better serve my customers,
I am wondering what you look for
when you go to a flea market
or a vintage shop. Please let me
know what type of things you
want to add to a collection or
to enhance your home.
Thank you and please share
your smile  :>)
