For most of my life I have been a junk store junky. I love rummaging through boxes, chatting at estate sales, and touching old stuff. Growing up in the Ozarks has had the benefit of being surrounded by lots of great old stuff.

The items you see here are found in my adventures. Most of them are old. Most of them are worn. All of them have that intrinsic quality that makes you want to reach out and touch them.

My partner lives on six acres, in a home that is about 600 square feet. We share our shelter with a cat that is afraid of the coffee grinder and a corgi that is afraid of thunder. The chicken coop is about a tenth the size of our home. As we move completely to this lifestyle, and as I prepare to sell my city house, choices must be made. And for now, that means sharing all our favorite stuff from my collection with you.
