unplugged.

when the idea of the JG world HQ was just a little dream of ours, we always knew we wanted it to be a friendly ecosystem for the unique species of troubadours to migrate. a place for singers and songwriters to find inspiration. a place where they, along with junkers, roadtrippers, and dreamers could all live symbiotically in sweet, sweet harmony.

and now, that little dream of ours is coming true…i’m very,very excited to announce…drumroll please…. the first ever JG FRONT PORCH SERIES: unplugged!!!

it’s gonna be a biggo time! seriously y’all….we are so honored to be hosting some of the finest singer/songwriters around!! they’ll be pickin’ on our front porch! and we sooo hope all of y’all can come!

in case you’re not picking up what i’m putting down, let me spell it out for ya… longhorns grazing in the pasture next to the HQ, bluebonnets blooming roadside, the big blue country sky up above, junk as far as the eye can see, and inspiring music that’ll make you wanna pull up a rocking chair and stay awhile! and oh yeah, i forgot to mention miranda lambert wine on select days! does it get any better?

the wind beneath my wings.

there is no denying it. there is no better place on earth than texas antiques week in the spring.

hashtag awesomeness.

hashtag i’m not even kidding.

it’s like the sky opens up and the sun comes out to play for the first time in many, many months. it’s wildflowers and fresh buds on the trees. it’s hills of green grass in the wild blue yonder.

it’s. the. bluebonnets. which are always, always worth the drive (as roger creager so perfectly says in his song, “fun all wrong”)

and nestled among all of this God given glory, is the world’s greatest fleamarket. the motherload of junk. the wind beneath our wings. texas antiques week.

and what is it that’s so great you ask? well, of course there is the obvious junk for miles and miles…as far as the eye can see. there’s the PEOPLE…God bless the junkers and all of their eclectic, unique, soulful personalities. there’s the food…did i mention the zapp hall crackers, the legal tender pimento cheese, the coffee bug iced coffee drinks?! holy moly. honey hush. i’m hankering for some of all that righttttt nowwwwwww. get in my belly!

 

but there’s also something more. something oh so much more. it’s something in the air. it’s electric. and everyone feels it. it really and truly is a happy place. everyone is happy because everyone has chosen to be here. junkers and shoppers alike. and everyone is grateful for being here. instead of shopping under fluorescent lights or sitting at a desk, you are out in the great wide open surrounded by junk. where you park in a pasture instead of a parking garage. where you don’t use your cell phone because you probably don’t have reception. where you let your free spirit loose and you channel your inner junker.

there’s a reason we call it junk therapy. for those that have been, you know why. if you haven’t, then what in the heck are you waiting for?

the fleamarket beckons…

junkers migration.

my favorite time of year…the time of year when the texas sun warms your shoulders after a cold winter. the time of year when the grass turns green again, the bluebonnets blanket the sides of the roads in the most beautiful velvety shade of blue, the birds are chirping…and the junkers, well, the junkers head south. south to texas.

south to the junk capital of the world. it’s the bi-annual migratory pattern of the species junkus mammalias. (that’s the scientific term for junkers…it’s in wikipedia. seriously. (no, not really but maybe it should be)). we arise from winter hibernation…we dust off our junkin’ boots. we stretch our creative muscles. we pull on our work gloves, arm ourselves with plenty of tie-downs for the masses of great junk we plan to acquire and we hit the fields in search of the greatest thing we never knew we didn’t need.

get ready, y’all. the greatest time of year is here. and, like us, you NEED it. TeXAS antiques week is kinda like chicken noodle soup…it feeds your soul. so get here as fast as you can. hit the highways or the backroads. you’ll be glad you did…it’s time for a little junk therapy.

the mother ship.

the mother load. the junk mecca. the fleamarket capital of the universe.

texas antiques week.

the time has come.

for those that remember their first time to warrenton (aka texas antiques week, round top antiques week)…you might be like us and you vividly remember crossing over those first hills of fayette county and into the hills of junk…the neverending hills of heaven. miles and miles of fleamarket goodness for as far as the eye can see. the experience….is 50 shades of giddiness. it’s spiritual. it’s junk enlightenment. and it’s pure-d happiness of all kinds.

your heart rate speeds up. your foot starts to quiver. you grip the steering wheel a little tighter. your palms get all sweaty. your eyes jump from the left side of the road to the right. you wonder if you’re hyperventilating and then realize it’s eupohoria. and then your brain asks…WHY have i never been here before? heaven, is that you?

tonight is the eve of our tent opening at zapp in warrenton. we’ve worked for over a week setting up our cow pasture store. we’ve unloaded trailers.

hauled piles of junk from here to there.

we’ve used a kabillion zip ties and enough light bulbs to beacon alien life forms. the tees are folded and the jewelry is plentiful. the junk is anxiously awaiting your arrival…

and we hope you love it from the top of your cowgirl (and cowboy) hat to the bottom of your pinky toes.

sweet dreams, junkers…tomorrow begins your soul vacation.
