About Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market
Coley Arnold and Lindsey Holt first met at a church fellowship group for young, married couples and became instant friends. Bonding over the new journey of motherhood was the first commonality as Arnold had recently given birth to her first child, Baylor and Holt was pregnant with her first. Shortly after meeting, the two founders realized that they had more in common as they discovered their shared love of vintage treasures.
While adventuring through the Canadian Rockies in Alberta, Canada, they began discussing their frustration over a lack of community and places to shop for vintage items in the greater Phoenix area. They joked about starting their own event so they could shop themselves. Their husbands didn’t laugh. They immediately saw a good business idea and encouraged their wives to pursue it. The first market was held in a friend’s backyard and they welcomed 23 vendors along with their own items that they had been saving for the event. The backyard market was a success with over 600 people showing up. There were cars parked along streets for several blocks in the neighborhood!
The founders knew they were on to something and began planning their next events and selected a venue, Westworld of Scottsdale, which would allow the market to grow for years to come. In 2015, they welcomed over 35,000 shoppers to their events. Growth and expansion continued in 2015 with an expanded 3-day Arizona market and the first out of state event in 2016 in San Diego, CA. Both Holt and Arnold are thrilled to announce several exciting new projects in the coming months as they continue to share their love for all things chippy, rusty, vintage and handmade.
“This is a great place to spend your weekend at! They have lots of vendors with cool, trendy, and vintage merchandise. We always end up getting something for ourselves and gifts for others. It’s always a fun experience, even if you are just looking around. Also, they always have good food trucks there as well. You should definitely check this place out!”
