concrete & tv crews…

we’ve been a little off the radar lately…but we assure you, it’s all been for a good cause. for the cause of spreading goodwill and junk karma across the globe. it’s been for the love of junk. and for the love of the road.

2 excuses. that’s what we’ve got: 1)concrete. 2) tv crews

1) concrete – it’s been a long wait…it’s been 12 years in the making…and FINALLY…we’re building our first-EVER stoRE! (*read our ‘there goes the neighborhood’ blog here to catch up*)

{best. day. EVER.}

 a junky home for all our junky stuff. a place for our junky friends. a place of happy thoughts and happy things.

{the whole family. it takes a village.}

 the concrete is poured. we’ve left our mark. the walls start going up soon!

{the big rigs makin it happen}

 and the other little thing we’ve been working on…

2) tv crews
