An antiques, shabby chic store inside a big shopping mall? Salem Center Mall has antiques.
Junk Trunk Boutique has antiques, shabby and cottage chic, painted furniture, and even mid century style furniture we could have sworn was from the Eames catalog.. but is actually hand crafted by a local furniture maker. Check out the pergola as you enter when you get there. One of the artisans built it for the shop, and you’ll wish it was in your garden.
The antiques are in great shape and are unique.
We saw a travel trunk that was so perfect it looked like it belonged in a steamship stateroom, or perhaps as a vintage a display for travel goods in a boutique. The white painted iron garden furniture we saw was a complete suite. There was a bench, two chairs and even a small matching table, all surrounded by garden decor to take home.
Then we saw the shabby and cottage chic painted furniture.
Need a chandelier for your personal bath? How about a vintage vanity with its original beveled oval mirror? Or a one-of-a-kind painted tea table or travel trunk converted into a coffee table for your home? What about a surfer’s skim board pinstriped and upcycled as a coffee table? Junk Trunk Boutique has them.
Everything is clean, bright, and well presented.
Vintage housewares, glass and ceramics are also in the shop. You’ll find unique garden decor pieces for your imagination to work with as well. Check out fun “baked vinyl” bowls. They are hand crafted in different shapes and very unusual to display..or drop your keys in when you get home so they don’t get lost! Be sure and visit next time you’re in Salem Center Mall.
