Winter Wonderland

Yes, it’s common to have snow in December in many parts of America, but not here in Georgia. It was something special to wake up to a winter wonderland this morning. Enjoy it! The sun will come out and it will most likely all be gone by this afternoon!

Take advantage of it and get out there and build a snowman! And, since we’re talking about snowmen, let’s take a look at a few of them we have at Junk Mama’s General Store.

Come pick up one of our many snowman ornaments and it will remind you of this December snow every year when you place it on your tree.

Snow days are perfect for baking cookies! Why not keep them in a cute snowman cookie jar?

We have a large variety of snowman dishes! This set also has plates & glasses…

Don’t forget something to serve the hot cocoa in…

This pillow will be cute on your couch all winter long!

And, who doesn’t love a snow globe?

The sun will come out, the snow will melt, but you can have winter in your heart and in your house with a quick trip to Junk Mama’s!

Cookies For Santa

Santa will be here before you know it. Make sure you’re on the nice list by leaving out some cookies for the jolly soul! St. Nick will be even more thrilled if you serve his cookies on something pretty like these plates at Junk Mama’s General Store…

And, better yet, why not just leave the whole cookie jar out for the big guy?!!!

While we’re on the subject, what kind of cookies will you be making for Santa?

Changing & Rearranging

The next time you visit us at Junk Mama’s General Store, you will see some changes. If you’ve been a customer for awhile, you know it’s quite common for us to change things up.

We are sad to say that our dear Junk Mama, Dawn has retired. She will always be a part of the junk mama family and we hope that we will still see her a lot!

With Dawn moving out of the butler’s pantry, that created a snowball effect of changing and rearranging. So, here’s what has been going on…

Dawn moves out and Mignon moves into the butler’s pantry…

When Mignon moved into the butler’s pantry, she left 2 spaces vacant in the side room. So, Kelli moved over into one of those spaces…

JM maria and more1M Kelli & Patty are sharing the other space…

JM maria and more1L

Are you keeping up so far? If so, then you know that that left Kelli’s space empty. So, Brittany moved out of the hall and into Kelli’s old space…

JM maria and more1J

JM maria and more1K

So what about Brittany’s space? Well, we are happy to announce the arrival of a new mama! We are thrilled to have our long time loyal customer and friend, Maria, as a new part of the Junk Mama family.
