A little over a year ago we used to shop at the two houses on Kenton Street known as “Junkyard Gypsies” but, now they’ve moved on out and to bigger and more noticeable digs over on 31 W not more than a half mile away from their old location. From someone who loved the old store, this new store has far surpassed what the old digs were able to store. Great open spaces to see the antique gold that ‘Junkyard Gypsies’ offers.
In a world of consignment stores of a sluggish economy, this one is different. It’s a mix between a movie prop house, antique store, novelty store, hobby store, collectable store, record store and an art gallery. I liken it to a store packed with the things that make you excited to watch History Channel’s ‘American Pickers’ and ‘Pawn Stars’ with a side of Southern Living. Lots of stuff from your childhood and stuff that would just look very hip in your home. No clothes, just straight up fun and practical home items.

They will many times have great sells and new stuff is always coming in and out of the store. I am glad to see we have a proper store that can not only restore the history of some great pieces but, make you happy just shopping in the store. They have a great area for parking behind their new location at 1022 31W Bypass.You can also reach them at 270.781.JUNK (5865)
Store Hours: Monday 11am-5pm, Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm and Saturday 10:30am-3:30pm
