Junk In Our Trunk in PLENTY magazine

PLENTY is a magazine for hip, savvy, environmentally conscious consumers, so we are honored to have been included in their spread on eco-friendly wallets. Page 94 of the Aug/Sept 2006 Issue to be exact! ;) Visit Plenty here or pick up a copy on the newsstands. In the meantime, you can visit Refinding’s page here to see the aforementioned “eco-friendly wallets” made of materials such as old tires and trading cards. Seriously, how cool is that?! Whether you are an eco-conscious (or just plain cool) guy or gal, there's one for you.

Amy J Designs

Amy Jazwinski’s jewelry just arrived the other day and is the latest addition to the site! When we receive packages like this it really takes everything in our power not to buy every piece for ourselves. I suppose it works out for the best that they are left for our wonderful customers to purchase because we would have had to duke it out over a few pieces! Here are a couple of my faves though in case anyone wants to get me a gift… ;)

Tiger Ebony N Chains Earrings, $16

Mod Circles Drop Necklace, $36

Testimonials and Praise

Check out our new page! Until now it had never occurred to us to take the nice comments that we receive here at Junk In Our Trunk and give them their own page. Sadly (blushing) we hadn’t really even thought to keep track of them until now so the page is sparse but sure to grow! And just so you know, we’re not trying to brag, really we’re not, but when we get feedback like this (such as the customer comments below) we can’t help but shout it from the rooftops.

"I recently bought a necklace off of your site and I just wanted to thank you:

1) For shipping to Canada...I know a lot of American companies won't do that. And thanks for sending it so quickly with out insane shipping fees.
2) For packaging everything so nicely - that gives me confidence for ordering off of your site for gifts in the future.
3) For sending along a sample of something - a nice touch.
4) For the other indie company coupons - I'm always interested in finding what alternative/small businesses are doing out there and found some great Christmas gift ideas (definitely bookmarked a lot of those sites).

So thank you very much for your excellent service and terrific product. Best of luck with your business. I'll definitely be a return customer."

Guess we’re doing something right! Yay us! ;)
