a visit to the junk lady.

A couple weekends ago Jeffrey and I decided to take a trip out to the junk lady. It had been quite some time since we'd seen her, so we headed out to her packed dirt land and garage sale treasures on a chilly afternoon. We only left with one thing, but it was well worth it. Awhile ago we found out that the American Pickers were heading to Florida in January. We recommended the junk lady for a stop, and they ended up contacting her! She told us she declined because she didn't think that she really had the kinds of things they were looking for. Plus, she has junk funneling in and out of her inventory all day -- I'm sure she keeps hold of any of the really good stuff. Still, Jeffrey and I were thrilled that she had been contacted at all. It was a good day. We both felt really satisfied when we left because we're pretty sure she remembers who we are now. That basically makes us royalty, or something. Enjoy your weekend! xo, R.

This junk lady sounds like quite the attraction - awesome that American Pickers tried to follow your suggestion to visit her! Love these photos!

This is so fun! I'm going to have to make a stop here on one of our travels back to FL to visit family!
