Top shop for gifts.

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

Announcement    Find unique gifts and curious collectibles for almost anyone! Help make the world a better place by purchasing and re-purposing items that have been left as trash in our streams and forests!

*STOCK ALERT* I am out of Large and X-Large Pieces (7+ inches) and Medium sizes (4-6") are dwindling. I do not know if I will be able to replenish stock before the holidays. If you would like some larger pieces or want to buy in quantity, please send me a message. If demand is high enough, I can make another 'gathering' expedition!

Flat/Flaky Coal has been more prevalent in the latest batch collected. This coal has a consistency similar to that of slate or shale, breaking off into thinner sheets and plates vs staying in a more solid 'ore' formation!

Kentucky's Natural Heritage

Working in the field has its advantages. I see all kinds of strange things in nature that might have a better home elsewhere. MineJunk is a brainchild of that concept - I find neat things while doing field work, and I list them for collectors to purchase.

Given the nature of this 'picking', stock certainly varies and the only guarantee is that each and every item is unique!

Coming soon - sun-bleached soda cans, beer cans, and more!

Please subscribe to the store to get alerts on new stock as soon as it arrives - quantities are EXTREMELY limited!

Sizing details

There are natural variations in the shapes and dimensions of coal pieces due to their nature (broken from seams and fractured by weathering and mining processes. When you order a size class, you are guaranteed to get pieces that are at minimum in one direction that size - for example, a 3-4 in piece may measure roughly 2 3/4 in on one side and 1 3/4 deep but on its longest side will be 4 in.
