Tales of this Shopkeeper - Funky Junk Boutique

This past Saturday we visited our son and precious family....that's another whole blog:)  We love them to pieces!
We decided to drive to Seville, Ohio where they were holding their annual Father's Day weekend garage sale......the WHOLE town!!! Fun, fun!  While there we stopped in to Funky Junk Boutique right in the center of town.  Michelle, the owner hasn't been open a year yet but when you walk in her shop there are treasures everywhere you look!

I saw soooo much I would have loved to take home with me!

Michelle greeted me with a warm smile and I liked her right away.....she has done an amazing job with her space including painting the original tin ceiling!!  She carries Chalk Paint Decorative Finishes and holds workshops two to three times per month.

I wished I could have taken this piece home....:)

Other items in her shop include these handmade bags.....

Everything is creatively displayed and makes you want to stay awhile....... I was so happy to meet Michele and see her fabulous shop!!  I know there are some big things ahead for her.  Stop in to see her and sign up for one of her Chalk Paint workshops.  The best of everything to you, Michelle!!


  1. Oh how fun Mary Kay! I love the Seville yard sales and have gotten some cool stuff there over the years.I didn't get a chance to go this year. (so sad) I will certainly stop by Funky Junk!! Seville is about 5 minutes away from my parents.

  2. Oh you will love her and her shop!! Very neat and maybe you could take a workshop:) Found a few gems at the garage to be posted soon! Hope all is well with you.
