I noticed that everyone sort of had their own approach to their shopping and junking. Some are looking for a specific item. They have done their research on what they are looking for and have a mission. Others like to wander and take it all in before zeroing in on the items they can use. And then there are those that feel it's a challenge to find the best deal or the things that are unique before anyone else can get to it. An my personal favorites were the gals who did some dumpster diving on the trip! Hard core junkers! :) As long as you leave with a smile you were successful!
Bright blue skies, smiling faces and a bus full of Junk! The day was perfect for our first group road trip.
It was so fun seeing what treasure hunters hauled back. Little bags of trinkets, pieces of furniture, rustic salvage, windows, lighting, jewelry, clothing... you name it! We had to convince our driver at each stop that YES, we CAN get even more under the bus! haha. As one of the gals on the trip put it to him: "we are junkers and we know how to make it all fit!".

Thank you so much to all the shops that had great finds for our bus group and plenty of help on hand to handle the large groups: Marshalls Antique Salvage, Farmhouse Frocks, Rust & Found, Funky Junk Boutique and City Salvage and Design. A special thanks to my sister Tracey that helped me all day and made a great bus buddy, and to my hubby that gave up his Saturday to be at the shop so I could be on the bus, and my friends that helped at the shop and kept things running!
Thank you to all our Rust & Found Junking Road Tour participants
for being so fun and patient!
Who Am I?
I've tried it all..hair stylist/faux painter/stay at home mom/jewelry artist/late in life college student. Through all of those former "careers" I have had one constant passion.. a love of junk, flea markets and creating! It took me 30 years to find the courage do this full time and I have finally settled on what I'm going to be when I grow up!
