mucho LoCO…with a side o’ crazy.

yep, it’s true. we’re bonafide, for sure, certifiably muyyyy loco. (that’s crazy for the spanish-challenged)

and here’s just a few reasons why…

  1. we’re gearin up for a BiGGO, GaLACTIC JuNK-A-PaLOOZA WaREHOUSE SaLE to be held in just a few short weeks
  2. we’re trying to complete amie’s soon-to-be new casa…her completely landworthy, land-yacht airstream
  3. we’re makin plans for gypsy-fyin MirANDA LaMBERT & BLaKE SHeLTON’S tyin’ the knot shindig
  4. with RouND ToP ANTiQUES WEEK and the JuNK GypSY JUNK-O-RaMA prom in just over a month
  5. with AuSTIN CITY LiMITs artist lounge the weekend after antiques week
  6. with the film crew rolling into town in barely over a week to begin shooting the JuNK GypSY pilot
  7. throw in the fact that i’m homeless, amie’s sleepless, and janie’s losing her mind…it’s a crazzzzy kind o’ time!

why you ask? why attempt this crazy feat? 2 words.

CarpE. DiEM.

sooooo here’s a quick rundown of numero UnO… our BiGGO, GALaCTIC, JuNK-A-PALooZA…a SaLE that you just can’t miss!

JuNK-A-PaLOOZA began as a way to kinda ‘clear out tha junk’…to get rid of tonz of stuff at really low prices. soooo several years ago, we decided to have a little sale here at our warehouse…with realllly cheap tees, realllllly discounted jewelry (lots of stuff below cost!), and looooots of great junk!

{twilight @ our last JuNK-A-PaLoozA}

 there’s always somethin for everyone…boys, girls, young & old…it’s a hodge-podge calamity of organized chaos!
