The Junk Gypsies Visit Yonder Way Farm

Junk Gypsies Amie and Jolie Sikes at Yonder Way Farm

The Junk Gypsies transform their friends’ produce market at Yonder Way Farm.

Amie and Jolie Sikes are longtime friends of the Kramer family, local farmers at Yonder Way Farm, who have an on-site market from which they sell organic meat and produce.  The Gypsies scour the farm for hidden treasures and inspiration to give the store a fresh look. They want it to feel like a real farmer’s market while keeping it personal for the Kramers.

While visiting the farm, Amie and Jolie find cool pieces of farm equipment they can repurpose for the store. Jolie discovers an old, galvanized metal chicken coop, and Amie unearths a grain hopper that she reimagines into a pendant light. The Kramers even introduce the sisters to some baby chicks, inspiring Jolie to decorate her chicken coop at home with her son, Cash Baker.

The Junk Gypsies bring floral chairs for customers to sit and relax in the store, as well as an industrial spool for a display table and family photos of the Kramers to remind shoppers about the people behind the food. As a thank you gift, the Kramers surprise Jolie with a basket full of chicks for her newly renovated chicken coop.
