Kim’s junk yard days

Not many people would think of spending their days spooning around junk yards, but Kim Wilde heads straight for them when she gets an opportunity.

“I had quite a bit of time to myself recently, despite the Michael Jackson concerts, and I spent it going round junk yards and antique shops”, she explains. “My idea of bliss is walking around old junk shops.”

Surely Kim is successful enough to go strolling elsewhere? “Well, I love old furniture, you see, and I love picking up bits and pieces. Actually, we recently shot some of a video at my flat, and it looked really good. I was very pleased because it showed off a lot of the bargains I’d picked up on my junk shop expeditions!”
