Welcome to Gardening Junky. I love all things gardening, vintage, and repurposed!
Gardens are a place to express our creativity, find a quiet reprieve from our hectic daily lives, and a great place to entertain family and friends. Your backyard garden may be formal and manicured -or more casual and relaxed like mine.
However you prefer your outdoor space, I hope you browse around and find some garden ideas, tips, and inspiration that will help you create your perfect garden retreat.
THE GARDENING JUNKY SHOP
I’ve had many people ask me how I got started with the Gardening Junky shop. So, here’s the skinny.
I’m an avid junker. I love gardening. It just made sense to marry the two. Over the years people would visit my gardens would ask if I could put together some of my Vintage Container Gardens for them, so I began having a sale each spring – to support my “plant habit”.
And Gardening JUNKY was born.
From there it evolved – festivals and flea market sales with a fellow plant enthusiast, then on to an “occasional sale” format with some fellow junkers.
In 2013 we decided to dive in full time and spent three years in our retail location in the Piedmont Plaza. Our lease was up and we had the opportunity for greenhouse space, so we are back – full circle – at the former Carlson Greenhouse location.
This shop is a wonderful labor of love involving my entire family. If you are in the area please stop by for a visit. The coffee is always on and we would love to see you!
