Melrose Crawl ~ Part II ~ Ms. Funky Junk

As we continue to Crawl Melrose we always like to take you to some new Shops we discover and enjoyed the bounty of Treasures of... so come with us today as we take you along with us to a delightful Shop called MS. FUNKY JUNK.

It's located on West Campbell in Campbell Plaza between Camelback & Indian School Road one block North of the Canal and one block West of 7th Avenue.

And as you can see it has some great Funky Junk!   Owner Debbie Nelson has stocked the Shop with a great eclectic mixture of Mid Century, Vintage Industrial, Shabby Chic, Retro and OOAK Artistic pieces.  Loving this sweet Vintage Pink Stove!

And there was plenty of the Rusty & Crusty that we also adore!

Yeah, that's me reflecting in the mirror of this great Old Boudoir piece as I snapped a shot of it as we came through the door... *Winks*

Much of the Styling was Bold, Funky & Fun... which is how I like to Style my own Home... but each room of the Shop had it's own Vibe and Styling... a little something for everyone...

So... for the Romantic and Shabbily Chic of you... there was a bounty of swoon worthy Decor as well... with fab pops of Color that I really appreciated like this Bold Turquoise accent.

And a Fun assortment of Vintage Smalls, many with precious Graphics that us Lovers of Nostalgia enjoy so much.

Old Dolls... Old China...

Fab Antique Art, I adored this Mother & Child piece... mixed with sweet Memory Makers like these well worn Child Booties...

The Styling of this Sweet Nursery will Inspire any new Moms or Moms-to-Be...

And the adorable 'lil touches like these cute faux Treats with the Vintage China...

LOVE IT!!!  Made you want to sit right down and have a Tea Party!  And you KNOW how much I Love Tea Parties!  *LOL*

And don't these faux bark dipped Strawberries look mouthwateringly real!!??!?!??  If I'd had the G-Kid Force with me there might have been wee teeth marks in these?!  *Smiles*

Yet another piece of Art that I fell in Love with... I could envision this piece in a Garden Room.

Whilst listening to Nostalgic Tunes on the Old Zenith Radio! *Smiles*

And the Color Palettes were so diverse and Divine in every room.

With touches of Creativity and Whimsy.  That's the BFF checking out some Vintage Silver and Vintage Industrial pieces that caught our eye.

I adored the Creativity of this piece... Vintage Earring Clips attaching & showcasing precious Old Photos clipped to a converted Bicycle Wheel in a Funky Fun Style.

And all at budget friendly prices... passing along savy shopping deals to those that may not have the desire nor the time to do-it-yourself.

And lets face it... even those of us who Love to Create don't always have the Hours in the Day to make everything ourselves or for ourselves... and if it can be had, already made, at a Bargain... well... I'm all over that... just point me in the right direction!  *Winks*

So the next time you're Crawling the Melrose District be sure to stop by MS. FUNKY JUNK and while you're here in the Land of Blog, stop by the Link which will take you to Debbie's Blog and learn more about her Vision and delightful Shop and Inventory.  And come back tomorrow as we continue our Crawl down Melrose... to yet another New Shop we discovered... the Fun has just begun my Friends!

  1. That We Help Daddy book makes me laugh. I hope Daddy doesn't go back over his work and chop off Sally's head.
    Happy Monday!

  2. Rusty, crusty, bold, fun, doesn't get any better than that! And we've been dipping into the turquoise paint can ourselves lately.
    Have a great week, Dawn.

  3. ok, i'm smitten with the pink stove, and the 'We Help Daddy" book. Most of all, i love the doll, without hair she would be just like my baby doll, lost years ago in a fire. i've looked for another for years.

    great post.
