~Junky Jewels & the JUNKY Junkin Grounds~

OK.... can you just imagine being able to go and dig through acres and acres of this JUNK every weekend????? I always tell you all about the Junkin trips but here are the pics to prove it!! I took these back in the Winter of my favorite Junk spot...it's always there waiting and the Junk is every changing. It is the biggest Junk ground that you can imagine...Barn after Barn full...field after field!!! The best junk goodies are usually found laying right on the ground!! This old man has been in business for 30+ years. I would probably be stingy and never share his name with any local dealers.....cause we want it all to ourselves!! I will get some more pics of this monstroscity of junk for your viewing pleasure soon!!!!

Just look at it!!! Go ahead... click on the pics and SUPERSIZE all of that JUNK!!

I am always anticipating the weekends..... now you know why....because that's the only time he is open. I took one of my junk friends with me there for her first time last year and she about had a panic attack when she saw it, I kid you not she about got out of the truck without putting it in park or cutting it off. I had to get a hold of her and get her to calm down before we got out of the truck!! Now she is hooked she goes regurarly for her JUNK fix too!!

Are you just dying of all the Rusty Crusty Junk you are seeing right before your eyes??? Oh yeah .... I will be back there digging through all of it on Saturday... well.... it was raining this past Saturday when I was there, I did not get my full JUNK fix in!! This is the Beautiful sight you see first thing when you turn into the long gravel drive!! L-O-V-E at first sight!!

Ok on with the Jewels..... Here are the next two Vintage Junk Stamped Pendants that are on the Market.... Walking Trainwreck... just how I feel this week... Gotta have a little Peace with it!! On a Rustic link chain... Us Junk girls don't like the shiney stuff!! $25.95 plus $3.50 to ship.

You know all of us Junkers LOVE the Yardsales/Garage Sales!!! This one I made up nice and JUNKY with an old Yale Key and Vintage Birdie. On a great rustic link chain. ~$27.95 plus $3.50 shipping~

Both of these Junkers are now available here and the Sleepy Poet... Old Key and Lock Vintage Junk Pendants~Both come on a Rustic link chain with toggle clasp ~ $25.95 each & $3.50 to ship.

Lisa said...

Oh my... I was literally drooling over items that I see in those pictures that I just wish that I could reach in, grab and take. How in the world did you find such a place!?! I would love to find a place like that here in Ohio, but have no idea how to go about doing that. Any suggestions?!?

Have fun looking and shopping (lol).

Hi Janna~ I am in junk heaven just drooling over that place! I've often wondered where you found all your treasure. You're a lucky gal to live to close to such a place.

I love the key and keyhole necklaces you made! I think one would look pretty good around my neck. ;D
Thanks for sharing your little secret with all us curious junkers.
Hugs~ Birgit
