Decorative Junk



I was trying to put order to the many pictures I already have.  While going through that task  I came upon these images that put a big smile on my face.  They were taken last year during my last trip to Bogota - Colombia.  We happened to pass by this place, which is really hard to ignore, as you can see!



I simply had to stop and take some pictures at what at a first look resembles a junk pile!



I just had to pass that beautiful door to see its interior.  Well, the place is a restaurant that when night comes it's transformed into a night club.



Once inside your eyes cannot stop looking all around.  Like on the outside, the inside is packed with found items.



I love the way they utilized those old sewing machines as tables.


The whole place had that old vintage looking feel!


You just want to go and look at every single item!


It was mid-morning, it was empty, but they were getting ready for lunch time.


We didn't stay to eat in there but I did enjoy looking through all of it!

Oh wow...I had no idea you had gone to Bogota! What a neat experience, and such a cool place. It would have drawn my attention too. It would have made me wonder about the life of each item...who it belonged to, and how it ended up there. So many stories in one little place. So glad you shared your pictures with us. Have a great week!

How neat! If you ever need to come visit central Texas area, go to Austin and see the Cathedral of Junk! It's pretty much the same thing... x 10 LOL

Thank you for Sharing!

Excellent photos! Looks like such an amazing place with a lot of history! I wonder what the food would have been like?

I couldn't live with it, but it would be fun to eat there and just look around at everything.

Mindi@MyLove2Create said...

This is so crazy! I can see why you would want to check everything out! I love places like this where there is a treasure around every corner. We went to a mountain town a while back and one store was similar to this, the walls were covered in vintage signs and amazing old things, I loved it...I should have been smart like you and taken a picture!

Rea T said...

oh WOW! what an interesting place!! i could go there and look & try to buy it like i was yard-sale'in! but kidding aside, that is a way of keeping old stuff...

Wow! Interesting looking place! Love the front door. This place would provide hours of fun perusing all the items. Very cool! I would hate to be the person responsible for dusting everything!

That looks amazing.
Not junk at all.

Angela Swanson said...

As they say one man's trash is another's treasure and that is so true. I love the eclectic nature of the place. I love it. I think I would spend more time looking around at everything than eating!

Roeshel said...
