#8: Junk Evolution

Have you ever wandered into a store and suddenly realized that it looks exactly how you wish your house/apartment looked? Or maybe had a sneaking suspicion the storeowner is a long lost sibling? Or really just felt that you wanted to buy everything in sight?

That’s how I felt walking into the one-room, Junk Evolution. It’s stuffed with restored antiques, mismatched teacups, vintage books, handmade quilts, a heavy dose of whimsy and an even heavier sense of sustainability. They take objects that aren’t being used anymore and restore them or find a way to reuse them.  It is, to be frank, the evolution of junk.
