JM mom1M

Mom is going to be so happy as she lounges around in her monogrammed pj’s sipping on a cup of coffee in her Fayetteville mug, admiring the jewelry around her neck & the art on her walls, while taking in the aroma of a beautiful scented candle, as she looks around to decide on what piece of furniture she’s going to paint first!

Being a mom is hard! So, treat her to something extra special!

But, the event that is most near and dear to our hearts, is our Relay For Life Wine Tasting event. Three of the Junk Mama’s, Cindy, Christine, & Valrey, are all cancer survivors. We are blessed to have them in the Junk Mama family, so it is important for us to do our part in helping find a cure for this awful disease. So, why not support the American Cancer Society and have a lot of fun at the same time?!!!

Check out these happy faces from a previous wine tasting event for Relay For Life…

Changing & Rearranging

The next time you visit us at Junk Mama’s General Store, you will see some changes. If you’ve been a customer for awhile, you know it’s quite common for us to change things up.

We are sad to say that our dear Junk Mama, Dawn has retired. She will always be a part of the junk mama family and we hope that we will still see her a lot!

With Dawn moving out of the butler’s pantry, that created a snowball effect of changing and rearranging. So, here’s what has been going on…

Dawn moves out and Mignon moves into the butler’s pantry…

When Mignon moved into the butler’s pantry, she left 2 spaces vacant in the side room. So, Kelli moved over into one of those spaces…

JM maria and more1M Kelli & Patty are sharing the other space…

Are you keeping up so far? If so, then you know that that left Kelli’s space empty. So, Brittany moved out of the hall and into Kelli’s old space…

JM maria and more1J

JM maria and more1K

So what about Brittany’s space? Well, we are happy to announce the arrival of a new mama! We are thrilled to have our long time loyal customer and friend, Maria, as a new part of the Junk Mama family.

Throwback Thursday…Holiday Open House

It’s Thursday! And with our HOLIDAY OPEN HOUSE happening this Friday, November 10, & Saturday, November 11, we thought we’d throwback to some of our previous festivities!

Let’s stroll down memory lane and start on our pretty porch. If you are a regular, you know that we change the porch every month. Let’s take a look back at our Christmas porch…




And, you know we always have good food…






Last year we had fun with an Instagram booth…






The best part of this THROWBACK THURSDAY is looking back at the wonderful memories shared with our great customers. So many of you have become our friends. We are thankful for you all!




Make your plans to join us this Friday & Saturday from 10am until 5pm and be part of the wonderful memories we’ll create for Christmas 2016!

As always, thank you for your business!

The Pumpkin Patch

Halloween is fast approaching, so it’s time to visit the pumpkin patch at Junk Mama’s General Store!

We have a large variety of pumpkins to fit any decorating style.

Start by greeting your guests with a pumpkin wreath or sign…




Then serve your guests a treat on a pumpkin plate…


What would a Fall centerpiece be without a pumpkin?


We have straw pumpkins…


We have fabric & decoupaged pumpkins…


And to add a little glam to your decor, we have glitter and metallic pumpkins…


This pumpkin will be the star of your decor…


This pumpkin with a witch and black cat is too adorable to scare the children…


We have metal pumpkins…


And, it wouldn’t be Halloween without pumpkins that light up!


Here’s another way to light up your Fall decor…


And, of course, you’ll need some pumpkin jewelry!


Hurry in to Junk Mama’s General Store before all the pumpkins leave the patch!
