Every Day Should be a Treasure Hunt

Welcome to Junk Drunk Jones. Here is a little tidbit about me, straight from my etsy store:

Authentic vintage has always felt like home to me, so I decided to take my shoes off and stay a while.

I grew up around old “junk”. I spent my life scouring through antique shop after antique shop, market after market. My first collection of oldies but goodies were a stack of old Peanuts gang books and tin lunch boxes. I was 9 years old. The stories behind those old, crusty pages were way more fascinating to me than any overly manufactured barbie doll.

As I grew older, my personal style went through this weird evolution as well. I have always leaned towards accessorizing with items passed down by my grandma and great aunt. I would snatch up every vintage scarf and sparkly old brooch I could get my paws on.

For me, creating a store that provides both style, and treasure alike was nothing short of brilliant.
Authentic vintage offers a guarantee – and that is the guarantee of some neat, unique, and sometimes downright wacky story behind every single item. I want to share that with my customers every day.

You’ll see and hear a lot about my dad, the mastermind behind Junk Drunk Jones’ old advertising picks. Let’s just go ahead and call him the resident -old ad guru-. He is so into this world of pickin’ that he has constructed an entire town for our family to enjoy. We nicknamed it Dennisville, but from a professional standpoint let’s call it the “headquarters”.
