Refunked Junk Ramblings

Decided I needed a few days of respite after the “Big Show” in Atlanta so I headed to my friend  Susan’s house in the great state of South Carolina where I could rest and refuel for the second half of the year. She let me sleep in the first day(9 am) before we packed up and headed to her lake house on Lake Greenwood. We shopped all the way there.  We bought some treasures at Vintage Lane on Hwy 25 in Pelzer, SC.  Cute shop! 

We then stopped at Bottle Tree Antiques in Donalds, SC.  They have a beautiful farm with 3 buildings full of goodies and a working outhouse.(potty before you get there). They are definitely off the beaten path. Worth the drive though. All my pics won’t fit in the blog. 
We are headed off for our next Ramble!

I'M Back!!!

Well it's only been about six years since my last post.  Refunked Junk has taken many twist and turns.  I am now headed back to true north, back to the JUNK!!!!  For several years, we have been growing our wholesale jewelry line.  However, we have grown weary of all the traveling and I have sorely missed my "junk".  We will continue to sell our jewelry wholesale & retail and do some local shows.
      A year ago, we moved into our new studio and retail store.  We are open one weekend a month because of our show schedule. Come visit us at 3045 N Cannon Blvd Kannapolis NC. Hours 11-5. Next Open Studio is July 20-22.

11-5.  Downstairs is the shop and upstairs is where the magic happens. We will be offering classes, birthday parties and ladies night out.
     I hope that you will follow along on our sojourn . It is guaranteed to be a wild and exciting journey.

Metrolina Expo Extravaganza

It is that time again!  Extravaganza is here.  If you are local, come see me, Tammy(Junk Wild) and several hundred other dealers at Metrolina in Charlotte this weekend.  The weather is beautiful and I have a field and building full of great new treasures.  You will get to see all the wonderful junk I bought from the Country Living Fair the other week.  The tale of the Two Tammys and pictures of the trip are coming soon.  The reason for the delay is that I have not a clue what I am doing with this blog stuff.  My wonderful friend Tammy(Junk Wild) takes the pictures for me and I write the blog.  So...there is a delay because I can write a post but am learning how to insert the text along with the pictures.  She has put the pictures up but I am too tired to read her directions on writing about our great trip.  We had a blast, made lots of new friends and networked, networked, networked.  Check out Junk Wild's blog for some pics.  Going to have a libation, have my feet rubbed by my hubby and dream about how to finish setting up my space.

Sweet Junkin' Dreams,

Conquering Hillsville

Sorry to have been away so long.  I took the summer off from junkin' and teaching.  School had just started back when I got a call from one of my best friends.  "You want to sell at Hillsville in September?"  I didn't even think about what it would take to get there.  I was ready to go.  Needless to say, I had 3 weeks to make tons of treasures, rob my other booths,  pack it all up in a van, 2 trucks and an enclosed trailer, ask my principal if I could be off for 2 days, find a sub, find a place to stay and beg for some help.  In the end, with some help from my friends,(isn't there a song about that), and my favorite husband, I was Hillsville bound.  For those of you who don't live close, Hillsville VA has a huge gun, antiques and collectibles show on Labor Day weekend every year.  The whole town is decked out in vendors.  There are probably over 10,000 vendors and over 500,000 customers that weekend.  I was fortunate to have a PRIMO spot next to the VFW building in the main field.  My friend's friend was unable to make it this year so I took over his spot.  I have reserved the same location for next year and I have already started making for next year. 

I had my best show EVER!!!!!  I met lots of great new people, sold a lot of great junk, and still made it back to school on Tuesday, exhausted of course.  My assistant principal even asked me when I was going to quit teaching and do it full time.  ???????  I had lots of requests for an on-line store so this might be coming in the future.  I have enough trouble keeping up with all the locations I have now.  Something to ponder in the wee hours.

I just want to say thanks to all my customers, old and new.  I will keep you posted.  Pictures of Hillsville will follow in the next few days.  The Depot will be getting a makeover this weekend and Metrolina is coming up September 29-October 2.  Hope to see you then.
