It was a sad day when we had to close the Dresden JUNK-Shun outside "honor system" 24 hour shopping.
Over the years we've been blessed with so many wonderful, honest customers. Coming home from a vacation to find our slot in the door stuffed with envelopes from outside shoppers always made us feel so good! And our customers loved the chance to "pick" through the junk for treasures to repurpose and renew anytime they felt like it.
But last Saturday we discovered we had been "hit" by thieves again...this time taking some old primitive tables and crocks that I'd been "weathering" and waiting to take to our booths. Everything was clearly marked with a price but someone thought it was okay to out 1.00 in the slot and take off with nearly 100.00 worth of stuff:(
It isn't the first time we've experienced theft...but each time it happens, it makes us angrier! And then we spend the rest of the day thinking about it, dealing with it and talking about it....to the point that it will ruin a perfectly good day. This particular day we were looking forward to going to Bloom Field to a flea market we'd heard about...but after this...we never made it:( Tired of the dishonest people in this world ruining our day...so the decision was made to "close it down".
So we are in the process of working the good stuff into current booths, clearing out the damaged stuff for the trash man and will no longer be buying items with an eye for offering and displaying them in our "outside area". So sad because it was a part of our job that we both enjoyed...
Of course we'll continue to stock our booths with lots of auction goodies so be sure to watch our website and facebook page for updates and new products. You'll find links to all 5 of them on our home page.
and THANK YOU
to our wonderful and honest customers who made it so much fun to check the "slot" over the past 10 years!
