Junk Whores...

Ahhhh...the life of a junk maiden...
ready to travel the back roads to pedal her goods
wherever the need may be...

WELL.....remember these two fools...

The White Girls...
well, they're getting ready to partner up again...
scary huh!!!

We've decided that we're gonna hit the road...
come Spring we're gonna hit the show circuit
and take our goods on the road...again!

Lorie and I have been packin' and movin' our shit all over the place
for years now...

...we've had the darling shops in Palo and Amana...

...then we packed 'er up again...

...and again...

...did Elkhorn shows...


...had the great lil' shop in LeClaire...

...and Muscatine...

...sweet, huh...

...always seeking...and always finding...
then on to The Junk Asylum, where many junk whores will be found...

BUT...
in the end, it all boils down to the fact that we love what we do...
we're junkers, pickers, if you will...
we ain't famous, but we sure know how to have fun...
yeah, yeah, yeah...I know,
but we have a plan
and we're stickin' to it...!
BE AFRAID!!!

How excited am I??!! I will expect a schedule that will include some Kansas and Missouri towns, right?! You ARE famous, BTW. I can spot your stuff from a mile away, not just the stuff, but how you put your stamp on it. Best of luck in the new year and I know I will see you in it!!!

Love ya, nut.

Good luck in the new venture!

Sounds like the PERFECT inspiration for the new year and all this lovely weather we are having here in IA. It's always great to have something to look forward to and to keep you motivated thru winter. You always have the BEST old pics!!! Love your soaps also....I need to make a Sister's run and stock up again and get some for care packages to family and friends out of state.
Take Care & Stay Warm
