On the Radar: HomeGrown Junk, Missouri Valley, IA

I’ll never forgot Shannon’s announcement on Facebook that she was quitting her day job to junk full time.  I think it was back in 2011?  I thought to myself, WOW!  That is amazing! Now, over five years later, HomeGrown Junk is still going strong 🙂
Located just a tad North of Omaha in Missouri Valley, IA, Shannon is in Junk Country. She’s got a great eye for the nostalgic, rusty pieces.  She shares her fondness of gas & oil cans, fans {swoon}, crates, feed sack pillows & industrial farm junk.

HGJ cans
Shannon has the thing for putting oil/gas/galvanized cans in with her flowers – great idea!
HGJ fans
Those vintage fans….oh yeah!
HGJ farm junk
Rusty Crusty Farm Junk, oh the projects you could do…

Shannon washes up the feed sacks while her Mom sews them up with love ❤

Her eye for fun junk is right on the market.  Her displays are phenomenal as these pictures clearly reveal.  And she posts frequently about what’s going on at the farm, what pieces she scored, the items she’s working on & a whole lot more so check everything out!
Sh lives in the country with Junk Hunk, hubby Brian & some rescued furry friends who you’ll meet over on the HomeGrown Junk website, Facebook, Instagram & Twitter.  They hold two junk shows a year on their acreage as well as set up at other events.  Keep up with all their adventures by seeing what’s going on in the Events tab & Facebook announcements!
