About the Author

Mary Randolph Carter is an author, photographer, avid collector of junk, and longtime creative director for Ralph Lauren. She is the author of Never Stop to Think Do I Have a Place for This, A Perfectly Kept House Is the Sign of a Misspent Life, For the Love of Old, and the Junk books, a series of books on discovering and decorating with flea market finds.


"From the author of Never Stop To Think...Do I Have Space for This comes another apologia to collecting. Carter, a Dutchess County resident, loves junk, loves searching for it, loves telling stories about it." -Chronogram

"'I wanted to witness the whole junk concept with diverse collectors," she says... At the heart of it all is a search for the stories and memories attached. When Carter asks each of the collectors 'why do you do it?' the answer always comes back to: because it makes me smile. It's fun. It's joyful. In the new book, Carter also shares her favorite junking haunts, and while many shops in the Rural Intelligence region have closed over the years, there are still enough to keep a junker occupied."
