J is for Junk!

The day after Thanksgiving I dragged myself out of bed and met up with one of my best friends at 4:30AM. Why? Because of 1 item on sale that Black Friday morning. I must say I was a Black Friday virgin. Never had I woke up before the crack of dawn for any sale except a junk sale of course!

What on earth was this amazing item? A Cricut Expression 50% OFF. We waited in line for an hour in the cold. I have never seen such chaos. I was triumphant and let me just say my little cricut has opend so many repurposing doors. 

Finally this leads me to the picture. This is our newest piece of jewelry. A vinyl "J" sits upon an old optical lense and with a little touch of ephemera it makes a beautiful pendent. 

Oh how I love JUNK! Rumor has it that you can make this at our January Junk Club!

Hope you all have a fun ringing in 2011!

Tis The Season For Jolly Junk!

Finally, some pictures from our newly restored shop!! The past 2 months have been a blur.  November 1st changed our lives forever. The second the building was ours we began a month long labor of love. We did it all from tearing down walls, exposing brick, refinishing the hardwood floors, painting, updating the electric, plumbing and heating. Without the help of our family and friends we would never have been ready for our grand opening that was on Dec. 4th. 

We are so excited to have a place our junk can call home.  Located in our town of Earlham, Ia, starting in February our shop will be open 1 weekend a month.  All of the excitement and anticipation of our markets can now be enjoyed every month!!

Here are lots and lots of pictures for your viewing pleasure.  Happy Holidays to each and every one of you. Enjoy your families, good food, and cool junk this holiday season.
