You guys seem to really like the posts about My Favorite Junk Shop and the Nashville Flea Market. Not only do I have a lot of photos and info today but also a junk shop video tour!
I get a lot of email wanting to know the location of “that cool junk shop”. Well, I'm sharing the info today. Don't go buy all the good stuff before I get there.
junk shop ( flea market shopping)
This is the place. Never found one similar to it anywhere in my travels. It's better than a flea market or thrift store.
Here’s a nice big picture with the name of the shop and the phone no. What more could you ask for.
I don’t remember how I stumbled upon Butler’s Antiques and I don’t really know how long I’ve been making the trip to Hopkinsville just to look at junk. I would say I've been shopping here for 20 plus years.
That’s where the shop is…… Hopkinsville, Kentucky…. a 40-45 minute drive from my home. The time on the road is well worth it.
My Favorite Junk Shop
updated with new info April 15, 2018..
Where you can find my favorite shop…..Butler’s Antiques, 17th and Walnut Street, Hopkinsville KY 42240, phone no. (270)885-1521
Butlers is about 40 minutes from my home in the Clarksville area. From downtown Nashville the drive is about 1½ hours. Store hours are Monday- Saturday, 9-5 or 6 depending on daylight hours and how busy the shop is.
Mr. Raymond Butler is the shop owner. He has several sisters who work in the shop with him on various days.
Ms Francis is usually there every day and when I try to get a photo of her she takes off. I did manage to get her on video once.
Ms Carrie is the organizer and wow has the shop gone through a major transformation since I started visiting. The building is two stories and there is a living area up top. I've never been to the second floor.
The bottom floor is the shop and there are 7 or 8 rooms. At one time some of the rooms were so full of junk that we couldn't shop them. Now all the rooms are open and have big walkways. We have Ms Carrie to thank for that.
Ms Suzette is the sister who works at a factory in Hopkinsville. She stops by after work some days and on Saturday. She is always smiling and likes to have her photo taken. Mr. Butler is also a camera hog.
This is not a paid advertisement!!! You guys are interested and I thought it was time to share. And now…as I do after every trip…..here’s the pics….
There is always furniture! And the prices are great.
Lots of vintage stuff. The parking lot and all areas surrounding the building are full of old windows, doors, furniture, and more. Sometimes there is very little parking space because there is so much stuff.
Wood railings, old doors, window frames with and without glass are all over the place.
I came home with this beauty. Her legs are in really bad shape and she’s very rickety but for the price I couldn’t leave her there. No, I’m not telling you the price. I can’t divulge (big word for me, thank God for spell check) everything.
I haven't tried painting fabric yet but I hear it can be done with chalk paint. I pass up chairs like these for that reason.
I meant to get the yardsticks and forgot about them. I’ve seen a lot of cool projects lately using these.
Some of the junk has been sitting outside a long time.
I love that panel door with the windows on top.
Take the junk shop video tour I made on another junk shopping day.....
Junk Shop Video Tour
Poor little girl, her flower pot is broken. She’s still a beauty and somehow I left without her too. I meant to bring her home and got sidetracked. That happens a lot! Well, that’s the info on My Favorite Junk Shop.
Thanks for stopping by, Kathy
