So, where does all the yardsale junk go after a yardsale is over?? Well, to junk heaven, that’s where. There’s a place out past where we live called J & J Junk Sale (right on Hwy. 280 East for you AL girls) & I’ve stopped in there a couple of times. The place is jam-packed with all sorts of things. Not sure where it all came from, but it looks like it might be the remants of yardsale stuff all over the Southeast. In case you’re wondering, I’m not much of a mall girl. Now, I can get dressed up with the best of them, but in my spare time, I’d rather hang out in a junkstore than the mall any day!
This is outside under the shed. All sorts of things out there to dig through. If you don’t mind digging…which I don’t.
Inside, there are rows & rows of stuff! A whole row of nothing but lace, ribbon, & old sewing items. There’s no telling what you might find in here.
Plates, glassware, cups & mugs, all things glass. You know there has to be some great items tucked in here among the discards.
Knick-knacks galore! Granny would be proud to own a few of these.
More kitchen items.
Kitschy things abound.
Seashell wreath anyone?
Lamps and baskets. Everything I saw was very reasonably priced. Almost as good as yardsales.
Clear glass things & a few old tired vaccum cleaners.
Lampshades for those hard to fit lamps. Maybe this is where I need to look for a new lampshade for my recent vintage lamp find. Hummmmmm!
Lamps & floral supplies.
Remember those Floraline pottery pieces I wrote about awhile back…here’s 2 of those, very cheap! I still like the color of these.
Old linens & there are rows & rows of clothes too.
White vases and tucked among them was a pretty white pottery piece. I didn’t buy it, but I will definitely check back from time to time. I think this one was $4.50, which isn’t bad for a pretty white vase. This would definitely look good with my collection. Maybe I should have bought it!
More vintagey items.
OH MY! Had to laugh, this is the store for my hubby and me – both of our names start with J! What a treasure trove!!
I’m from Alabama (but living in Germany)… I love junk stores, flea markets, and thrift stores…. But have NEVER seen this place! It’ll be on my list of things to do next time I’m in the state. Can you tell me the city (280 E could be many things.)?
This store looks amazing! So many possibilities!

Rhoda—I met you at Haven (with about 250 of your other closest friends 🙂 !!) . I live right around the corner from J & J—and we’re in there often! Mr. Johnson loves our youngest and always had a treat for him!!! You are an amazing inspiration!

Where is your store. I’m just east of Panama City, Fl.
