New 2-mile Pendants

2-mile pendants continue to be a Junk In Our Trunk customer favorite and the most recent shipment that we received is sure to continue to please. Butterflies and flowers dominate in this latest collection which makes me think that Viki had spring in mind as she was hand crafting the little lovelies. Though each resin pendant comes with a 16” wire chain, their simple and versatile design will work with your favorite pendant-friendly necklace, ribbon or leather cord just as well. Visit 2-mile’s section at Junk In Our Trunk, pick your favorite pendant and then add your own touch!

New KLEAN scrubs!

Summer is just around the corner which means whether we like it or not we are all going to be baring a lot more flesh real soon. Is yours ready to be bared? Didn’t think so. JIOT + KLEAN to the rescue!

The lovely Jennifer (aka the “Sugar Scrub Queen”) was a vendor at an event I recently attended so I had the pleasure of smelling many of the delicious summer scents she’s concocted. Lucky for you she let me bring several back with me for our shelves and your buying pleasure! Colada, Tart Apple and Zen Tea will help put you and your skin in the summer mood and while Brown Sugar and Very Vanilla may be less summery, they’re still too delicious to pass up. With these new additions we now have 9 different scents in stock, all at the very gifty price of $9.50 each. Don’t just buy for yourself, pick one up for a friend too and share your love for all things KLEAN.

To some the word “urban” can give the connotation of something being rough around the edges or even grungy but the inspiration that Eric and Jesse derive from their urban lifestyle translates into just the opposite. “Puckish” is synonymous with fresh, playful and flirtatious so it is appropriate that the newest line to our store of graphic tees (hoodies and tanks too) and bags hold that name. I wish I had known of Puckish when I was shopping for my Europe trip last year. I would have bought one of everything and layered for a much more stylish look than I had and probably would have been more comfortable too! And I digress…back to the story at hand – visit Puckish’s sections at Junk In Our Trunk to see the fashionable yet comfortable (who knew you could have the best of both worlds?!) pieces for yourself. As always, a sampling to get you going…

They had me at “blox”. Really they did. For some reason when I first heard the name, I just knew whatever it was that they made would be cool…and it is!

Lori Reynolds and Magdalena Kubik are the dynamic duo behind the blox line of contemporary tile jewelry. Their background in interior design definitely shines through in each piece of jewelry where there is a strong emphasis on material, composition, color and form. Using products often found in architecture such as glass and metal tiles, each creation is both delicate and strong in appearance. Modern yet classis is yet another way I would describe the line of wearable art that is blox which leads me to believe that even though the collaboration is a mere two years old, they are here to stay.

As usual, I’ll leave you with a couple of my favorites and then you can visit the blox section at Junk In Our Trunk to pick out your timeless piece…
