Junk + Family + Friends = A Great Life

This past weekend has me and junking are all a girl really needs. Old Crow is a family affair! Moms, dads, sisters, brothers, grandmas, grandpas, husbands, wives, toddlers, cousins, and friends who are like family all help in making what Old Crow is today.

Kasey and I are blessed to have all of these people in our lives. We all put in countless hours. From our moms, grandma, cousin, and aunts who help take care of our girls while we hunt, clean, and pretty up our junk to our friends who help us clean, organize, and price the many piles of junk. They are our Crow Crew!

Our barn, the junk, the smiles, the sweat, the laughter, the snuggles, the “ah ha moments”, and even sometimes the tears is what life is all about.

We love and even giggle when our family brings us junk! They have been trained to never leave a piece of junk behind. Especially, without asking Kasey or jojo first!

There will always be good junk. That I know, but family can’t be taken for granted. This weekend my dad was visiting us from Colorado. We had 3 days to enjoy with him. It turned out to be 6, one would think 3 extra days yay! But, they were spent in the hospital. On Saturday we had to take my dad to the ER. 6 hours later we found out he had blood clots and would have to stay in the hospital until today. He is doing much better and is being treated with medication. Thank god! Life truly is so precious.

Our families make Old Crow possible. With their love and support Kasey and I get to do what we love. Of course thats rescuing cool junk! This is our first big work weekend and the grandmas are on call. There’s about 4 weeks or so until the Bonanza and the Crow Crew is ready!

Happy Junking!

Oh my! I am so glad that your dad is okay. How scary. My business is becoming a family affair too! My grandpa and mom join in all the time. It's so fun!

Have a great day!

Continued prayers for your dad!

So thankful to hear all is well. I'm sure he was thankful to be with your family during that scary time.
Now if I can just get my family on board - they just shake their heads and have a blank look on their face when I show them all my good junk :)

Your family and especially your dad are in my prayers. My dad had a close call last January. It's hard to see your dad in the hospital and sick.
Hope you have a productive weekend scrubbing, sanding and what-not! Hard to believe we'll be leaving for Minnesota in less than 4 weeks - yikes!

We will pray with you and your family. So glad to hear that your Dad is on the mend. Hope the weather and every other variable works in your favor to get you to Junk Bonanza. Kris

Hoping that all is well with your dad. I love the family and how everyone pitches in. I like to think about our sales "that we sell memories". And family is what our memories are about!
