I really love this tribute to American junk/kitsch/antiques. I find the text less interesting than the gorgeous pictures of acutal homes decorated with flea market finds, and the odd and wonderful things that people collect. The author is obviously very passionate about flea markets. Of her companion books, I have only seen Kitchen Junk, which I enjoyed, but not as much as American Junk.
