The Jax Thrift Ave Junkin' Machine: To The Golden Pimp Thrift Bus Mobile, Batman!


A little while ago I was invited to take a peek behind local thrift store Jax Thrift Ave with my friend Bookseller Joe to behold a school bus painted blinding gold! The store owner uses it to pick up new merchandise for the shop. I call it the Golden Pump Thrift Bus of Awesome. Damn, he's living the dream. I get a lot of e-mails from fellow thrifters who dream of owning a bus like this or a van and traveling cross-country in search of scores- possibly filming the adventures along the way. I personally would still prefer thrifting in Optimus Prime, The Batmobile, The Mach Five, The Turtle Van, Ecto-1 or Back to the Future's time traveling DeLorean but hey, this is as close as we can get. I'll take it!

What's your dream junkin' machine? I have more pimped out thrift/art ride peeks coming soon.

    1. It's definitely A Thing. I've gotten a lot of e-mails and had a lot of conversations and it's all exactly the same: rent big machine, travel the US and hunt, film the travels. Yep, I've dreamed of it too...

  4. I would love an Airstream trailer or maybe one of those boxy 70s Winnebagos. Pop-up shops are a dream of mine. Someday, maybe...

  5. Awesome! My dream thrift-mobile is a VW mini-bus in powder blue, pea green or tangerine... complete with directions to every backwoods roadside attraction, thrift store, junk store, flea market and ma and pa diner....and an infinite supply of gas. Is that too much to ask? HA!

  7. Jaket Kulit Jakarta Selain terkenal dengan makanan khasnya yaitu "Dodol" dan peternakan seperti "Domba" di kenal dengan "Domba Garut" kota tersebut menjadi kota kreatif yang penuh dengan keaneka ragaman budaya, adat dan kerajaninan tangan seperti contohnya Jaket Kulit Asli Garut ini.
