Junque by any other name

On my way back from the cottage in the summer, I drove by a fascinating brick Victorian house on a street corner in a quiet country village, and I just had to turn round and investigate.
It wasn't the house that caught my eye, it was this!

This was the outside, right on the street. I think it used to be the back yard.

And this was the inside.

There was hardly room to move between the stacks and stacks of assorted "antiques". I wonder how long it took to amass this huge collection of "stuff"?  I spent a happy half hour, or perhaps it was more, just wandering round. I resisted temptation and didn't buy anything, but I really need to go back and have another look!
This is a scheduled post while I'm away for a few days. Leave me a comment, I'll be back soon.
