Not Old - But Seasoned

Hi friends! Kalli here.

In Johnston County, you’ll find the Blue River, Ole Red, and even Blake Shelton (sometimes!). And now you’ll find the cutest and most unique little store on South Kemp Avenue … Junk Stars! The store is owned by Dorothy and Kim, who are long-time friends and now business partners.

You can usually find these two ladies at garage sales or anywhere else hidden treasures can be found. We’ve heard they even dumpster dive (hint…hint…watch the video below to learn more about this!)!

They say, “We’re not old. We’re seasoned.” And that’s how they describe their merchandise, too! Everything in the store is completely unique and has its own twist to it. Paintings, antiques, home décor, and my favorite, denim jackets. I mean look how cool I look in this!

Are you a Blake fan? This is the perfect place for you! There’s tons of Blake Shelton merchandise and the store owner, Dorothy, is Blake Shelton’s mom! And she’s definitely a proud momma with all of his albums displayed behind the counter.

The outside of the store matches the inside, with unique murals perfect for taking a picture (and tagging #routecc on Insta! You know you want to!)

I hope you get to shop with the Junk Stars soon because their entire store is so much fun. And remember, next time you’re shopping in Chickasaw Country share your trip with us using #routecc and you could be featured on our social media!

We’ll see you in Tish,
