I wrote a lame title for this post and I just couldn’t bring myself to use it but it’s dorky enough that it seemed a shame not to share. Ready?
Vintage Junk Rocks!
Random junk photo taken on the same day as the other photos in this post...
Ok, I’ve probably written worse but if you knew how much over-thinking I put into things, you’d understand why I consider that kind of cringe-worthy and once/if you read this post (unless that last sentence was enough to make you turn off your computer or put down your phone or abandon your tablet and leave the area) you’ll understand how lacking-in-subtlety (yet easy) that title would have been. For me.
Did I mention the over-thinking? Good.
Ditto on this photo.
There’s been a series of totally random yet very delightful emails showing up around The Land of Into Vintage lately and here’s one example:
I was wondering if you would be interested in letting us use the attached photo on an album cover for a small up and coming band called Surviving Allison. It will be used in good taste, and we would give you full credit for the photo on the album.
You may recall a post from back in the olden days when I took myself out for some birthday junking and snapped these photos while in an antique mall in Astoria, OR (Hi there, Phog Bounders Antique Mall).
Then that random-yet-delightful email arrived and before I responded, mad googling commenced in order to check out the band, Surviving Allison. I just wanted to make sure they don't sacrifice unicorns or anything like that.
And so my response to the email was a big, ol’ YES.
Days later, this appeared in my inbox.
The designer told me each object with a sales tag represents a member of the band.
No words except maybe “Vintage junk rocks!”

P.S. a HUMONGOUS thank you to everyone who took the time to wish my dear Auntie a happy birthday on my previous post. You are the best. xo
