What do you do when you retire but aren’t quite ready to really retire? You could take up golf, hitting the course every day, working on your swing, on your putting, and watching yourself improve. You could join a bowling team and tear up the lane. You could learn French cooking.

Or, you could do like the owners of Junk in the Trunk did: you could move into a small Indiana town, and open up a shop that combines something you, and your spouse, both enjoy. You can both grow together and stay invested in each other’s hobbies–while still getting the extra time that traditional retirement implies.

That’s how Junk in the Trunk in downtown Danville got its start. They took their individual loves for certain vintage or reproduction items and put them together to make one really great Indiana antique shop. It’s not any one thing. It’s a nice combination.

You’ll find gorgeous pieces of furniture, neat tin signs and other art, and sleek cases of stuff like necklaces or bracelets or pins. The furniture here was stunning. There’s a piece that I have my eye on. I just can’t fit it in the car. That’s a bummer. Don’t make my mistake: bring the truck to this one!

Junk in the Trunk is more than a place in to find unique items for your home, it’s also a consignment shop. They don’t take just anything. They focus on high-quality, made to last items.

As a consignment shop, well, I’m sure you know what that means: the selection will always be changing. With lovely exposed brick walls and great organization, it’s a classier, more upscale version of your typical sell-it-again shop. I absolutely love it.
