Junking Trail: The Early Birds

Among some of the changes to this season's Junking Trail is the condensing down from two days into one. But we know you'll be chomping at the bit to get trekkin', so some of the Shop Stops are offering Early Bird times for you to set out hours (or a day) ahead of the official Trail (Sat 10-4p)! Take a look at these stops who are just as excited as you to get junking:

ANTHOLOGY: open FRIDAY (Nov 7) 11-5p
74 S Main Street, Templeton, CA 93465

Connie (owner) founded Ambiance in San Luis Obispo years ago and hasn't quite got the entrepreneurial bug out of her system yet. Nestled up in Templeton, her new shop, Anthology, is in a converted house full of her vintage finds, new clothing and accessories. It's melange inspired by Anthropologie, European, and flea market styling. Glitterfarm is also popping up here for the Trail! If you have yet to stop in, make it your first trek on Friday!

815 Printz Road, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420

This little barn shop only opens their doors a few times a year, and we are lucky the Junking Trail is one of them! You will not want to miss this stop: not only will Marilyn (owner) be selling amazing vintage and rustic home goods, but it comes complete with a full experience--goats, horses and chickens on five acres in South County!

GREEN VASE: Open FRIDAY (Nov 7) 10-4p
200 Nelson Street, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420

Connie (owner) has been a staple in the Arroyo Grande Village for fifteen years, and the building even longer. Built in 1886, her eclectic store houses old furniture both repurposed and original, her handmade linen pillows and loads of other items from vintage to antique. Green Vase is a true step into the past, and worth the early stop in!

472 Aloma Way, Arroyo Grande, CA 93420

Birthed from the imagination of its founder and long time junker, Deanna Webster, this converted rock climbing gym is now home to unique, vintage collectibles. Only open for the Junking Trails (or by appointment), this stop is truly one-of-a-kind--stocked and curated especially for the trekkers. RetroSLO will also be popping her hand painted trailer up here, so don't miss your chance to get a first look on Friday at DW's ReEntry ReBorn!
