Why we love it:

Funk your Junk was delicious! Tucked away behind Pier 21, the store was an eclectic pastiche of vintage, recycled, locally-designed pieces and well, junk! Fork bracelets, watch necklaces, record cover tote bags-- it was DIY meets tickle trunk. The owner was lovely and was really enthusiastic about CapitalOh. Drop in and say hi, who knows what you'll find!

The idea behind this quaint little store was really simple - everything should be used more than twice. There's always an element of surprise when coming in here because you never really know what you are going to find, or what you're looking for, for that matter. The owner was a total hippie - but in the best sense of the word! She was a pleasure to meet, super nice, and I definitely believe that more people can live by her motto. As we all know, one person's trash is another's treasure. I also scored a rockin' leather skirt for about 30 bucks, and I have my eye on a badass ring (but not until after Christmas...until then, NO SPENDING!). I recommend checking out Funk you Junk because there is definitely something for everyone. -J
