You Gotta Go Here!

Over the weekend we visited Centralia, Washington. It was fun browsing through the antique stores and boutiques. This paper dress drew us in to a wonderful shop.... Catty Wampus.
Inside we discovered this pink paper crown in Pink Frosting's booth.

Such a fabulous selection of vintage linens.

Down the way a bit was this fella bathing right out in public!
He's in the window at The Bath Depot on Pine Street.

Then we stumbled on a very fun, whimsical place called Northwest Tub Co. featuring "Across The Street Antiques". It's run by a husband and wife team, Steve and Nellie Kopa. Loved this place, it was super funky and a little messy....just what we like! It's more fun to have to dig through junk to find your perfect treasure. The next couple of pics are of the antique part of the business.

Pink Trees are popular aren't they?

Then we came to the Tub part of the shop.

They had all kinds of claw foot tubs and wonderful old sinks. If you are looking for one of these, this is the place to go.

You could definitely see the male influence in the store. These hubcaps were displayed on the wall like art and it worked!

Next we dropped into "The Painted Lady Vintage" and chatted with Stacie. She had this adorable blue typewriter in her booth called Two Bugs.
Centralia has so many stores to browse, it's definitely a must see for true blue junkers.

As we got back on the highway our perfect day was capped with this cute little trailer driving down the road. Not sure you can read it but under the Orange Krush Kruiser it says
"I go where I'm towed to go". Remember our show is in less than two weeks!!!
Have you made your plans to attend yet?
We have over 100 booths of "hand picked" vendors
for your junkin pleasure.
Friday night is our "Girls Night Out" with
early shopping and a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research. The first 50 junksisters in line receive a swag bag full of goodies! Don't be late....won't you help us kick cancer to the curb?


  1. Totally putting this on my list for when we're on a day trip.

  2. What fun! I wish I could be at your next show, but Washington is far piece to travel. I hope you have a very successful and fun weekend. La

  3. Thanks for sharing the pictures! I want a pink tree and I have made it my life's mission to buy one this year. LOL

  4. I used to live there and it is a perfect place for junkers!

  5. Well howdy~ did you go into the Painted Lady Vintage?? It is where our booth is! We are near the tub store. Also, did you hit the huge garage sale at the Fairgrounds?? Head over to my post....would have been fun to see you I was in Centralia briefly this weekend, too! :-)
