Weathered benches, a bicycle built for two and vintage birdcages greet visitors outside a new shop called the Junk Market.

When Fleda Brogdon and her niece, Judy Brown, began the business, they named it My Aunt and Me. But now that Terry Creswell has come aboard, they've renamed it. Creswell is the practical, all-businessman of the trio while the women are more emotionally tied to whatever they buy. They see old furniture as what it could be rather than its state when they buy it.

Brogdon describes herself as “silly, fun and weird,” a life-of-the-party type while Brown is quiet and private. Still she expresses herself well when she's out scouting for yard sales, usually hitting coffee shops and cafes when they open the day of the sale. She also uses Facebook and Google to get inside information.

The women tell hilarious stories about trips to Dallas Market and experiences on state-to-state yard sales. But then so does Creswell. Read more of the story in the weekend edition, Sunday, June 9.
