These were so freaking perfect for what I needed! I wish I could figure out how to add a photo to the review, because these were so cute, words just can't describe. I put them on little cardboard "crates" I was mailing out, like steamer trunks and luggage cases of old, and they were very well received. If I do this again, I'm definitely getting more!

Spent last night trimming stickers, and I just finished adding a bunch of new sets to the shop. I'll be trimming more tonight. It's raining out so I'm looking forward to getting cozy with a cup of tea and snip snip snip!

About

Vintage junk (the good kind).

In a former life, I must have been a magpie. I have a lifelong love affair with junk – and by junk I mean only the most amazing, mystifying and unusual forgotten treasures. I've never seen a tiny trinket or shiny bauble I could resist, and I just adore antique ephemera.

I suppose my fascination with junk started as a child. I used to dress up my mother’s finest hand-me-downs for a game I called, “Bag Lady.” It typically entailed an ensemble of several old dresses layered on top of each other, an oversized London Fog trench coat and several paper shopping bags, the kind you get at fancy department stores.

With my best attire and bags in tow, I scoured the neighborhood for bits of treasure. Anything from discarded soda cans to little bits of plastic might end up in the bags. And if it was trash day for our street … well, let’s just say my mother got her fair share of phone calls from the neighbors wondering why her little girl was playing in the rubbish.

It sounds a little icky in retrospect, but I’m still playing that odd childhood game. I’ve been known to pull furniture from dumpsters, make abrupt roadside stops to grab a box of old toys from the curb and even dig through mounds of dirt of excavate old rusty metal bits from half-buried lawn mowers and farm equipment.

Not all of my treasure hunting expeditions are so glamorous, but I will go to great lengths to save something of value from the inevitable doom of the trash dump. I’d like to say it’s because I’m ecologically minded or frugal and pragmatic, but the truth is I just find junk to be quite interesting.

Whether it’s a discarded shopping list in the grocery store parking lot or a small tchotchke at a thrift store, once loved and now forgotten, all the ephemera of our strange and amazing culture has a story to tell. Every thrift store is like a museum, and every garage sale is an adventure in anthropology – but all those items rich with history have to go somewhere (I really don't want to end up on an episode of Hoarders). Lest they find me buried alive by boxes of old papers and jars of gumball machine toys, Junkmill was born.

If I can’t make it right, I will accept returns within two weeks of purchase and offer a refund or exchange for the full purchase price (minus shipping and any applicable fees). Returned items must be in "like new" condition. Packaged items must be returned unopened.
Shipping
All orders ship within 1-3 business days. Unless noted, all items ship USPS First Class, and many items qualify for flat rate shipping.

I'm also happy to use customer accounts for FedEx and UPS delivery on corporate orders. Message me for additional details and pricing.

Additional policies and FAQs
All of my vintage items are thoroughly cleaned and restored to the best of my abilities. However, I only clean, restore and repair items as long it retains the item's inherent value as vintage or antique. If an item has been significantly altered in the cleaning and restoration process, I will include that information in the item listing.

Please bear in mind that vintage items are, by their nature, previously owned. While I make every effort to accurately describe each and every item, some wear and aging is to be expected. Items may have minor imperfections or show signs of use. I think it adds to the charm! If you have questions on the condition of a specific item, please inquire before purchasing.

All items are stored and shipped from a smoke-free home. However, I do employ a very mischievous tabby cat, one incredibly snarky pug and a fearsome bearded dragon, so a few stray pet hairs (and maybe a scale or two) might make it into your package.

Looking for something specific? I may have items in stock that haven’t been listed yet ... or I may know where to find it. Send me a message with your request, and I’ll see what I can dig up!
