Joann Dyson wrote, “I love seeing how people re-purpose junk!” I have both buying and selling cool junk with Joann. I recall a fun alley deal we had once with lovely old fencing planks. Joann rarely misses a Junk By Jenny fall sale and scored some awesome deals this past fall at my “Junk After Dark” event. Thanks for loving junk, Joann.
I truly enjoyed reading the many contest entries here and on Facebook. Like me, it seems like people like the people and moments shared even more than cool junk. Cool junk is great too. I should give a shout out to Karen Aslakson’s response (aka Junk By Jenny’s mom), who said, “I love when Junk by Jenny’s end of the barn is clean enough to get the boat out!” It is always a win when her and my dad can squeeze their boat past my junk and my hubby’s decoys for a day out on the lake.
…and Hello February Give-Away!
This month I want to introduce you to The Rustic Coop. I stumbled upon this fabulous business on Instagram. I enjoy the design sense and Insta photos the owner shares. Her vintage, chic look always leaves me inspired. Recently, I ordered a few tees from The Rustic Coop that were too cute to pass up. Within days, my HELLO JUNK and VINTAGE QUEEN shirts arrived in the mail, delicately packaged with the most lovely hand written note.
Bop on over to www.therusticcoop.com to see just the fabulousness for yourself.
Upon ripping into this package, I knew I wanted a HELLO JUNK tee to be my “Share the Love” Giveaway for February. With extra love in the air as we celebrate Valentine’s Day, act fast for this one-day giveaway. To enter, simply comment on this post about something/someone related to junking, crafting, or anything DIY. The contest will run until 11:59 pm CST on Valentine’s Day. The winner will receive the gray HELLO JUNK, as shown below. I will contact the winner to secure their mailing address and desired t-shirt size.
