Hi

estoy buscando un equivalente en inglés de la palabra cachureos...creo que es algo propio de mi país, Chile.
bueno, los cachureos son todas las cosas viejas, o en mal estado que uno generalmetne junta en la casa sin saber que hacer con ellas.
( por ejemplo, televisores en mal estado, ropa antigua, muñecas rotas,etc)

en las ferias libres, o también en algunas llamadas ferias de las pulgas venden cachureos.

muchas gracias desde ya!
Daniela
