If you are currently using a "smart" phone, specifically one made by Apple, you now have the option of "following" me as I post near-daily images from deep within the "secret" sorting structures of the "Junk Store". Just set-up the "Instragram" app (it's free), and add me, "thejunkpirate".
Apparently, you can only participate through the iphone app, not online, so get to it. Here is a sampling of some of the mysterious and downright nutty images you have been missing:

Of course, I'll continue to update the Tales From the Junk Store Blog regularly with more outlandish donations and cryptic anecdotes, but now you can also get you daily dose of oddball items in the palm of your hand. The future is here.

A couple of recent Pepper Spray donations. 
It's always good to have a few of these on hand in case some of the more elderly donators get a little to rambunctious when they ask for a "senior's discount".
