The Art of Junque

Sunset Junque on the Blue Star Highway in Michigan is a surreal assortment of artfully arranged junk.  Architectural treasures and vintage kitsch live harmoniously side by side.

This is like the Island of Misfit toys.  We wonder what happens after everyone goes home and they’re all left alone.

There were quite a few items that wanted to come home with us, but we settled on two ironwork pieces from the top of a widow’s walk and some vintage grocery stamps with evocative titles; Hale Haven, Fertile Hale, 16 Full Quarts, 24 pints…and were sorry that we didn’t get  the “dewberries” stamp (what are dewberries anyway?)  Our daughter Julia’s doing a series of apothecary jar images in her printmaking class that these might suit.
