Yay! Fresh off the presses and video camera comes a JUNKMARKET dynamic duo. This is so exciting. Let me give you the skinny on this product. The magazine is a 48 page excerpt from my current best-seller, Junk Beautiful- Room by Room Makeovers with JUNKMARKET Style, highlighting the best of the best from the book. It includes 5 room makeovers along with many of my favorite step-by-step projects. If you don't already own the book this will leave you yearning for more and there is indeed plenty more where this comes from. What's totally new and fresh? Something that we here at JUNKMARKET have never done before....a DVD. Woo hoo! The DVD includes a flea market shopping experience including all the tips and tricks, a style file, three different bathrooms three different ways, a creative workshop section with me, Kimberly, and our new Junk Hunk, Brandon, a video version of my daughter's bedroom makeover, and a personally guided tour through the "House That Junk Built". That would be my home! I have to say that this may be one of my favorite junking experiences ever...and that speaks volumes. We had an outrageously good time, shooting, writing, creating, and producing this DVD for you. I hope you have as much fun watching it as we did making it! The cover price is a bargain at $12.99. The contents will totally give you an upper-hand on how to cut costs and raise the coolness meter at the same time. Now that's a two-fer.


Where to Find It:

You can pick this treasure up on newsstands in locations such as: CostCo, Target, Lowe’s, Home Depot, Menard's, Borders, Barnes & Noble, Grocery Chains and many other outlets.

mountainspring writes: Hi Sue,
Please, please come out with more books and magazines ! I am wearing out my copies of "Room by Room" and "Outdoor Edition" I would defintely subscribe if there were a regular magzine. My home is a 1937 cottage/bungalow in the mountains of North Carolina. I bought an old baby carriage today...will make a cart for crates of flowers for my backyard...thanks to you!!
Please let us know if you are in the North Carolina area. Posted: 4:51 pm on May 15th

chezdoublewide writes: I just bought my copy of Junk Beautiful last night...wow! Talk about right up my alley! My grandfather, who passed away last April at the age of 99, was a garbage man his entire life working life. I inherited a warehouse full of beautifully aged junk - amazing collection. So anyhow, I was flipping through the magazine and nearly fell off my chair when i saw the refrigerator magnets made from old game peices. Here's why...my very first task at my very first job (in 1974, when I was 13 years old) was to collate those game cards and put them into a plastic bag! my parents were partners in the company that manufactured that product, called 'Fraction Dominoes' and my father was a co-developer of that product. Thanks for the great magazine and especially for the opportunity to share with other junkers! Posted: 3:28 pm on April 1st

What a great new publication! Congratulations - the cover is beautiful and very inviting! Can't wait to get my copy and see your smiling face in March at Round Top and catch up on life. I'll be doing the show at Red Barn so Shelley can run and play with you!! See you soon ~ Cheers Kathy Posted: 5:06 pm on February 13th

repeat_it writes: I loved sitting and enjoying this treasure!! I have not yet had the time to watch the DVD, but I know it will be wonderful. I, too, have the Junk Market Style Mag from 2006, it is truly one of the best mags ever---would love to see it on the news stand again, or better yet in my mailbox :-)
Thank you for all the inspiration, it's nice to know that I am not alone in my obsession for junking. Posted: 8:54 pm on January 23rd
CottageElements writes: I saw it today at Home Depot and yesterday at Lowes. Lowes only had a few copies left (yeah!). If you see it and it's hidden, be sure to put it front and center for Sue!!!!

Redesigned writes: My husband actually bought me my copy knowing what a junk junkie I am! He saw it for sale before me!! Love it, love it, love it...I was in a lull and I am becoming consumed again with junking, my spirits are lifted and I feel alive again!! I can't wait to start hitting the trail hard again.

Junkin101 writes: Hi! I'm a newbie, but I'm sold. I bought the magazine yesterday at the grocery store on a whim. Thought it would be just another decorating magazine, but WOW! How could I not know about something so exciting? Now I can't wait for the snow to melt so I can get a second look at all the junk that's layin around the farm we bought. I'm sure it will have a brand new meaning for me. Thank you so much for sharing all your wonderful ideas. Posted: 10:45 pm on January 17th
gramdeb writes: I, also, just ran across this magazine at a store I worked in. I am the magazine merchandiser. I was surprised and happy about seeing this magazine!!!
I can't play the dvd--I will ask my son what is going on.
I am now hunting for the old chicken feeders--great idea to store bottles !! Posted: 7:45 pm on January 14th
JUNKON writes: Had to pick something up last night at Lowe's for my husband on the way home from work. I was very excited to see the magazine and dvd at the check out line. I bought it, took it home and my husband and I both sat down and watched it. Very inspirational!!! Hope to see more soon. Thanks for all you do to inspire. Posted: 5:06 pm on January 14th
CountingYourBlessing writes: I picked up a copy at the grocery store today! I know you're probably used to it by now but isn't cool to see a bit of yourself at the grocery store, the book store, the home decor stores?! I've been leafing through it already and I can't wait to watch the dvd later. Congratulations!

suewhitney writes: Hi JoBeBeth,

I'm soo sorry about that. I would take it back to the store where you bought it and exchange it for a new one...that way you won't have to wait so long. Let me know what happens.

Take care
Sue Posted: 6:05 pm on January 12th
JoBeBeth writes: I love the magazine and of course the books, but I was a little bummed out when I got my copy home and the DVD was blank. I did e-mail the Taunton Press and am just waiting to hear if they have any idea of what I could do to remedy it. I was looking forward to watching, so I guess that the anticipation will just have to continue to build! Posted: 4:17 pm on January 12th
suewhitney writes: Hi Mamamost,

It is not a subscription...at least not yet. In the meantime you can order a copy here http://www.georgia-moon.com.

Sue Posted: 11:45 am on January 12th
mamamost writes: Is it available by subscription? I found the very first issue and none since. It is great!!! But no one carries it in my area!! Posted: 6:23 pm on January 10th
MyPetiteMaison writes: I'd better get going and order my copy now. I'm behind the times, so glad I subscribe to the Newsletter to get the inside scoop! Off to get my dynamic duo.

StrangeCargo writes: Sue & Team Junk.... Great magazine and DVD. I've seen the DVD twice now and am motivated, inspired, and on the lookout! Truly a great piece of work. Thank you and will be looking for more! Posted: 2:52 pm on January 9th
Cherwood writes: I picked up a copy at the local Home Depot store last week and have watched the DVD twice already. My favorite part is the trip to the flea market. Elko Traders Market is my absolute favorite - I could go there every day. It looks like your preferred vendors are the same as mine! I recognized every single inch of the vendors spots that you visited. It makes me long for those warm sunny days to come. They can't come soon enough! These Minnesota days with 10+ inches of snow and below zero windchills get very long. Thanks for giving me a way to visit one of my favorite junking spots as often as I'd like.

CottageElements writes: I watched the DVD this weekend. I did find it at CVS so those who can't find it should check there. They only had about three left though. I loved the DVD and Sue's house is incredible. Was well worth purchasing for the DVD alone! The magazine was an added bonus. Hope you can find it!

whiteflower writes: I picked up this magazine at Borders Books over the weekend. Finally - a magazine that is refreshing and different. I am sooo tired of the same old stuff that you see over & over.

LoveMyStuff writes: Hope to find this in my little neck of the world. Dug through my pile of mags that I cannot throw away and found a treasure -- the Junk Market Style Magazine from 2006. Still love it! Lots of good ideas that will never go out of style in the world of reuse and repurpose! Guess it's ok to be a pack-rat sometimes. Will, hopefully, be posting a couple of things soon. Been having too much fun just browsing the sight on my time off. Posted: 6:52 pm on January 2nd

MimiToria writes: I need to find this soon. With all of the snow that came yesterday, the furtherst I ventured out was to the Post office and Target. Hmmm! Neither of them seemed to be selling it! Will look for it as a New Years gift to myself. Anxiously hoping to find it today or tomorrow.
