What is all this junk, you ask? It’s just a fraction of the stuff that hubby and I will be hauling in my car and in my dad’s truck to my rented space at Uniques & Antiques in Mineola, Texas tomorrow! Yes, tomorrow is the day I have been looking forward to for like, 28 years!
That is almost as long as I taught school! I have to be honest, though. I hadn’t made it a real goal until it became a possibility a few months ago when I retired. It’s just that when the junkin’ bug hit my parents years ago when my now 28-year-old son was a baby, we would tag along with them to antique and junk shops where I would imagine what it would be like to be in that business.
So now I get to find out. I may find out that junk dealing and repurposing will be my second career, or I may find out that it won’t be financially feasible. Either way, I will have fun. Whether it will be for a couple of months or longer is in God’s hands. I’m just grateful for this opportunity.
If you happen to come to Mineola, visit the antique mall called Uniques & Antiques on Line Street near the railroad tracks just off Hwy. 80. I am vendor #03, A.C. Junk ‘n’ Stuff. You can also find me on Etsy under the same name. Photos of my decorated booth will be forthcoming. Happy junkin’!
