I have chosen to make Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market my career because I love the community we have created and love supporting so many local small businesses.
I am most proud that we have built a community that supports and encourages each other’s successes.
Seeing so many shoppers and vendors enjoying the market is the most rewarding part of what I do, while the balance between [being a] mom and a business owner is the most challenging.
We give back to the community at each market. We collect items for different local charities and have expanded our efforts into Africa.
My greatest advice to share with young girls is to find out who you are, love yourself and support and love other girls.
My hope for the future of Arizona is that it continues to grow its creative community!
I have chosen to make Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market my career because it allows me to connect with amazing creatives and talented artisans from across our beautiful state.
I am most proud that what started as a small backyard event has now grown to encompass an amazing community of attendees and artisans who we've inspired to incorporate vintage into their daily life.
The deep-rooted friendships and partnerships that I've developed is the most rewarding part of what I do, while balancing running a small business with being a wife and a mom is the most challenging.
I give back to the community as we have made it part of our mission to invest in the community by partnering with local organizations during each of our events to raise awareness and provide items such as school supplies, toiletries, blankets and shoes, and my greatest impact is seeing others who have been able to pursue their creative endeavors full-time as a result of our events.
My greatest advice to share with young girls is to never be afraid to take the first step toward something that inspires you, gives you life or that you are passionate about.
My hope for the future of Arizona is that it will continue to be a place where entrepreneurship and small businesses flourish.
