You wish you would never have parted with…
We hold garage sales and get rid of common-bought goods all of the time but rarely do we part with our found objects.

Your style in three words:
rough, gritty and bluesy


You knew you were a junker when…

…my wife made me pull into an abandoned farmhouse off the highway and we found a rusted 500-pound, six-foot-tall tall metal multi-drawer cabinet out in the middle of a field behind the house. With only a couple of rusted 55-gallon metal drums and a piece of rope we somehow managed to load it up and get it home by rolling it across barrels like the Egyptians moved stones for the pyramids, into the bed of the truck.  Probably took 5 years off of our lives but sooooooooo worth it!

Best all-time junking find:
see previous!


Bringing to the Bonanza:

Handmade cigar box guitars made from recycled and repurposed items and, you guessed it, cigar boxes!

You never junk without…

…my wife.  She always knows the difference between brutal or brilliant.

In your garage: cars or junk?
You’re supposed to put cars in the garage???


No one would ever guess you…

…used to be a faux finisher.

Your junking holy grail:

to have access to a famous musician’s junk room or garage


Junking makes you feel…

…like I just got a great deal that no one else has access to.  I get so smug about that stuff!
