About Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market: Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market was born from the idea that the greater Phoenix area needed a bit more junk in their trunks. Two girlfriends, Lindsey Holt and Coley Arnold, who enjoyed the pursuit of finding that perfect vintage piece & sharing home décor ideas, felt there was a lack of a community and opportunity for local Arizona Junkers. A vacation in the summer of 2011 was the starting point for Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market. The friends found themselves junking their way north from Spokane, Washington up through the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, Canada. After returning from their trip, they set out to launch their own vision. The first vintage market took place in the backyard of a north Phoenix residence in September of 2011. With much success, they started to feel like there was an interest in having a truly unique vintage market, one that people could put on the calendar every year and look forward to. Out of this desire, their upcoming events will provide an amazing line up of local vendors, a world-class venue, & a great opportunity for lucky shoppers to find unique items for their homes.
