To Haviland china and old galvanized lanterns

Repurposed lighting

Mid-Century storage

Not just for kids!  Linda used it as a centerpiece!

It's First Friday!

 Here's what's happening this month at junk E

Our theme for April is OPPOSITES ATTRACT.  We hauled in the heavy duty Industrial furnishings to pair with the softer lines of French, Gothic, and queen Anne.  It's the perfect balance in our humble opinion.

In the Gazebo we have the Three Feet and Under Club house!  Some children's furnishings and vintage kids clothing.

First Friday celebrations begin at 5-9 PM tonight.

junk e welcomes a new boutique VINTAGE TWILL in the corner of our shop by Char's sister Christine and her daughter Lyra.  It's always been their passion and dream to have a shop and we're happy to make that dream come true.  The big unveiling will happen at 5:00 tonight.  They have some beautiful fashions so if you are looking for a truly unique outfit at with an affordable price tag come visit these two ladies who will help you find the perfect outfit.

Marching Along

I finally had some time and remembered to take some pictures of our French Asian Fusion, now that we are down to the last week!  There are some large items that I'll need to move out in order to make room for new so I'll be lowering some prices.

The new classes are scheduled and the sign up sheets are at the shop.  If you want to get a jump on it before I post them to the newsletter and our events tab.  You must pre-pay to secure a spot to be fair to everyone especially the teachers :)

I'll be sending out the news in a few days and there are lots of new exciting features coming our way!
