Junk in the Trunk returns to its own storefront

Aug. 10, 2018

A Sioux Falls business that sells new and old furniture and home decor, much of it with a modern farmhouse style, is back to having its own storefront.

Renee Johnson started Junk in the Trunk in 2012 in a retail center at 12th Street and Marion Road. After a couple of years, another business bought out her lease, and she began selling her pieces at flea market businesses in the area.

“After awhile, we decided it was time to go back to our own store,” Johnson said. Her husband, Chris, does “all of the hauling” and makes some of the farmhouse-style wood furniture.

Junk in the Trunk opened Aug. 1 at 1918 W. 41st St., just one block east of Western Avenue in the former Ernie November space that has been vacant for four years. In addition to the furniture and decor that the Johnsons make or repurpose, there are pieces from three vendors in the 2,200-square-foot shop. She also carries Dixie Belle chalk paint and raves about the results she gets from using it.

“I always loved going to auctions and rummages, and I always enjoyed painting,” she said. “I went from painting the walls of my house every three months to painting furniture.”

She frequently posts photographs of the store’s merchandise on its Facebook page because “there’s new items coming in every day.”

House are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
