I junK, therefore i aM. OuR MoTTO. PinK SaDDLES to TumBLEWEEDS….

June 14, 2010

because this is a business built on JuNK, the love of JunK, and all things junKY…we decided to dig through some of our old pics and post some of our FaVORiTe finds over the past few years. FroM PinK SaDDLES to TuMBLEWeeDS…DAiRY QuEEN to VaNiLLA iCE…neon ARMADiLLOs to PLasTIC piRATE chests…

{the NEoN ARMADiLLO...seriously y'all, does it get any better?}

 and here’s a shot of us getting it from here to there…

{this baby is HUUUUUGE. originally from beaumont, texas...but we bought it from some junker friends outta KaNSAS}

{who in this whole wide world DOESN'T need a hollow, plaster, life-size burro??!}

{this AwESOME PiNK saddle inspired us to create the 'cotton candy cowgirl' design...luuuv it!}

 one of AMiE’s FaVORiTES…

{retro-style PLasTIC pirate chest...she likes the classy stuff!}

 one of MoM’s prized finds…

{one of our FavORITE all-time FInDS! this baby ain't FoR SaLE!}

we later discovered this same crown is lit up like the 4th of JuLY in one of PinK’s videos…complete with ProM dress and carnival rides!

and just this past MarCH, we stumbled upon this InCReDIBLE find…

{a HUGE 5'X4' LeTTERMAN-signed oil painting}

 we’re not sure what it’s worth…apparently these were sold through the JC PeNNEY catalog years ago…mom, amie and i just fell in love with the sweet image.

and we’ll ALwaYS love this old SoFA…we used it for our first photoshoot EvER….10 years ago…

{we bought this off the back of a junker friend's truck...and we still have it here in the warehouse}

and here’s DaD…hangin our ‘everybody-thought-we-were-crazy’ tumbleweed!

{aaaand it sold within minutes of hangin it!}

{amie found this old diner-style table-top jukebox! a REaLLY rare find!}

{this SaILFISh was a whopper and a keeper! we didn't throw this one back!}

and years ago, amie and mom found these old FiBERGLass TuLip-shape PLanters in a pile of rubbish in GRoeSBECk, TExAS…we think they were from a ChRISTMAS float

{3 total...they took up the whole trailer...but they were oh-so-worth-it!}

and here’s another high-dollar, fancy-schmancy find…

{yep, that's right. VaNILLA ice buttons...buy one, get one free at HeCTORS!}

after a day of JunKin…loaded to the brim!

{time to head home...loaded to the brim!}

 

and last but certainly NOT least….

{LaRGE MarGE...our pink JUnKIn ride}

purchased for $400…formerly the OVERTON (our beloved alma mater) FFA suburban.

stay TuNED as we keep diggin thru old pics! and even better than the GreAT JUNk we’ve found are the amazing people we’ve met along the way…their stories coming soooooon!

    Hi!
    I am inquiring to see if the large cat poster (JC Penney catalog) is available for sale. If so, how much and would you be able to ship it?
    Thanks,
    Ben
