How Old Were You When You Started To Become A True Junk Collector?
I am curious what our members remember about when they became true junk collectors? Did the junking gene hit you early....school age? Or did it appear when you were in High School or in the dorms? Or after raising kids? When did the JUNKING really take hold? How do you satisfy your "junking" needs?
Please shasre your stories.
just after I got out of diapers, got me some pants with pockets then you can do some damage, dad got me my own tool kit in prob 5 6 years old as I was steeling his and the rest of the crews then it has been a greasy down hill slide ever since. I go out even in this lousy snowy weather and still come home with treasures & I don't need any thing else except the fresh "jazz" of a new find till I sell it to some one else.
Wow, What a question. Reality is that I was born to dive.
My grandma was a trasher who always brought us the best stuff when I was a kid.
I'd be with her driving somewhere and she would see an overflowing trash can or a curbside full of stuff from someone moving...I knew we where gonna be awhile. I grew to love it. I used to handle the garage sales she would throw almost by myself by the age of 7. I have survived much of my adult life on strictly diving. I have stories for days! Thanks for asking the question...very neat to think back. :)
