Antiquing and Thrift Shopping in Richmond

Antiquing and Thrift Shopping in Richmond

Here we go again on a new Junkin’ Journey! And this time, I did more than just put a foot in Virginia like I had in Bristol. This go around, Mr. Seasongoods and I packed up the truck and headed to Richmond, VA to explore some new territory and find the best antiques, vintage, and thrift shops around. Richmond has been on our target list for a while now. And when it came time to plan a Spring trip, we decided not to put it off any longer.Read more ›

Antiquing in Bristol, Tennessee and Virginia

Antiquing in Bristol, Tennessee and Virginia

As someone who does NOT follow NASCAR, Bristol, TN has never been on my radar as a destination. No offense to NASCAR fans, of course! But, when I was researching potential Junkin’ Journey locations, I fell in love with the quirky geography of it. As it turns out, the Tennessee/Virginia state line falls down the middle of State Street, which is the heart of downtown Bristol- in both states.Read more ›

Antiquing in Marion and Black Mountain, NC

Antiquing in Marion and Black Mountain, NC

As you may remember, I have a particular fondness for the Appalachians in the fall. When the leaves on the trees wash the mountains in a perpetual sunset and “Nature’s glitter” swirls and twirls behind the car as we zoom by. This time around, we didn’t go too far from home and explored towns along Interstate 40 just east of Asheville, focusing on Black Mountain, NC and Marion, NC. Read more ›

Shopping in Boone, NC: Best Antiques, Vintage, and Thrift Stores

As soon as the first inkling of Fall hits- be it a nip in the air, the faintest color on leaves, or pumpkin ANYTHING- we get a hankering for a road trip into the mountains. Autumn and mountain life just seem to go hand-in-hand. And since it’s September, it seemed natural for us to pack up the truck in search of vistas and vintage.

Shotgun!: Brevard, North Carolina (A Junkin’ Journey)

*** Please note that this post on Brevard, NC has not been updated since early 2016. I had planned on updating it in 2020, but as we all know, 2020 hasn’t gone as planned!  So, please check back in 2021 for a freshly updated post. ***

I love to sit down, study the map, and figure out where I want to head to next for my latest junkin’ journey. For obvious reasons (money, time…), I tend to stick relatively close to home- with the occasional longer sojourn to further-away stops. But for right now, I decided to head back into western North Carolina.

What can I say? I’m a sucker for a mountain town.

So we headed up the mountain- literally- to Brevard, North Carolina. Home of the White Squirrel Festival, Brevard is a charming little town with an equally charming Main Street. And I’m happy to report, several charming little shops to explore…shall we?Read more ›
