South Tampa's best kept Junk Secret!!

CJ's Collections, located at 4005 Gandy, is a diamond in the rough! Although you actually have to dig for your treasure, you are surely to find what you are looking for. This store is filled floor to ceiling with anything and everything imaginable, from furniture to old glassware. The owner pretty much rakes up garage and estate sale leftovers and brings them back to his store. And the best part is the prices can't be beat!!!

If you have an eye for design, some sandpaper and a can of fresh paint you will be sure to turn someones trash into something fabulous!!

I have purchased a number of items: a wood side table for $25 i painted and made into a vanity, vintage suitcases ($1), vintage art, some great rusty metal stools ($15), a wood tool box ($1), stuff to paint for Salty Sisters... and yesterday I snagged this great photography/art lamp for $8!! (online it's priced at about $45) It's going to be perfect as a quirky floor lamp or for lighting the patio during my late night painting sessions!

Stop by and tell them Angelique sent you!
