FUNKY JUNK for Adornment, Gatherings, Crafting & Gifts

Washington, D.C.

Top shop for gifts.

A buyer bought a gift from this shop and gave it a 5-star review!

Announcement    Welcome to The Funky Junk Boutique! I have had a passion for thrifting since I was a young girl. My sisters and I would accompany our mother to the thrift store almost every Saturday - we looked forward to sharing this special time with her.
With allowance in hand, I would wander the thrift shop looking for clothing, jewelry, books and wares to add to my stash. Once we returned home, my mother would prepare tea and we should gather together to have "Show & Tell". I began to make jewelry with baubles found during our thrifting excursions and bags of broken jewelry and trinkets gifted by my grandmothers. My sisters would wear my creations - thank you Sue and Candi for being my first models! :-) I guess you could call my early years of thrifting and crafting a family affair.

I closed my brick & mortar in August 2020 and decided to open an Etsy shop to stay in touch and continue selling my wares to current customers and students. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. Not only would I have the opportunity to continue selling my wares to local customers, but I would also have the potential to meet and sale to new clients all over the world. I am so happy about this.

Let's talk about purchases - I want you to be happy with your purchases. I will try my best to accurately describe listed wares and provide as many pictures as possible. Prior to placing your order - please feel free to contact me if you have any questions regarding any of the listings. I do not mind answering questions and providing additional photos. Post-purchase - please contact me ASAP if you are not happy with your purchase. I will do my best to satisfy your request. Providing customer service is very important to me.

Prior to mailing packages, I confirm mailing addresses and take picture for future reference (I hope we do not have to use).

Postage - Unfortunately, I do not have any control over postage rates, but I have tried my best to keep the prices of my wares fair and affordable. The Funky Junk Boutique participates in the "spend at least $35 to receive "free shipping" program. And, I also include a couple of Funky Junk to make it all worth while.

Tracking & Confirmation of Delivery - I use the USPS tracking system to track the delivery of packages. Once I receive a confirmation that the package has been delivered it is beyond my control, but I will definitely work with you. Please note: I live in Washington, DC and we have serious issues with "Porch Pirates" (folks who steal packages from front porches, steps, etc.) Please keep an eye for your packages if you are experiencing the same in your area.

Thank you again for your interest in The Funky Junk Boutique. Grab a cup of your fav tea and enjoy shopping for Vintage, Thrift, Bespoken and Handcrafted wares.

Pinkies Up!

How I turned into the "Queen of Funky Junk"!

Bienvenue! I started crafting and designing at a very young age - my mother and grandmothers would gift broken pieces of jewelry and baubles to me to add my to treasure chest that resided on my dressing table. I used many of these wonderful treasures to create jewelry and gifts for family members and friends.

At the age of twenty, I started selling my wares at a very busy and competitive out-door market - many vendors sold jewelry! I had to think of a unique and creative ways to make my booth and creations stand-out from the rest. As a dedicated Francophile (lover of all things French!) I staged my booth to appear as if you were shopping the stalls of a Paris Flea Market by incorporating vintage, rustic and bespoken findings and baubles into my designs - creating one of a kind earrings, bracelets, necklaces, pictures frames, sachets, etc. These pieces were well received. So, the search for "Funky Junk" became an obsession and the love of hunting for unique pieces continues today.

I love sharing my findings with other creative souls - I especially like to see what is created from these pieces. I am always amazed at how other artists use pieces in ways that I never thought of.

When you love what you create - it will show in your creations! Watch out! You may become a "Queen of Funky Junky" too!

Au Revoir!
Robin, The Queen of Junk
