Please welcome new business ‘Junkie Jane’s’ to Burien by dropping by their Grand Opening celebration this Saturday, Nov. 11, from 9:30 – 7:30 p.m.

This new store specializes in Unique Finds, like Antiques – Industrial – Art – Retro – Vintage and other cool stuff.

And they’re proudly located in Olde Burien at 902 SW 152nd Street, across from the 909 in the spot that formerly housed Phoenix Tea, right next to the fantastic mural of an Osprey that was painted by French Artist Mantra Voz.

Here’s some background info on this cool new biz:

The Story behind the name JUNKIE JANE is a story about Love Birds and recycling. The original Junkie Jane was Margaret Jane Allen. Margaret was born 1923 in Flint Michigan. Here she met Al, but soon after he went to serve his country in WW2. During the war, Margaret moved to southern CA. Soon after the war Al moved to CA to marry Margaret. Their friends gave Margaret the nick name Junkie Jane because she was always collecting cans to recycle. Sometimes Al would join his wife, holding hands strolling through town, collecting cans. These two love birds also enjoyed volunteering at the local thrift store and at the end of their shift they always seemed to find a treasure or two that they had to bring home.

Margaret and Al had two daughters, Virginia and Nanci Jane. Nanci married Ken and they too seemed to give the name Junkie Jane credit. These two love birds have a knack of finding unwanted treasures and re purposing them into things of beauty like this bench, wind chimes and beautiful jewelry.

Nanci and Ken also had two daughters, Sierra and Jamaica Jane. Jamaica married Clint and these two love birds soon found that they really enjoyed going to storage and barn auctions, garage and estate sales, and where ever else they might make that special discovery of some unique item. Jamaica soon referenced this as “MY HOBBY WITH MY HUBBY”! Jamaica, Clint and their two children, Destin and Starla, moved to Burien WA in 2015 and fell in love with the area. So when a spot opened in Down Town Burien Jamaica and Clint decided to open up JUNKIE JANE’S: selling their Unique Finds of antiques, industrial, art, retro, and up- cycled items.
