Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market
What’d you and your bestie bond over? Of the several things Coley Arnold and Lindsey Holt had in common, the duo’s friendship was sealed by mutual love of shopping for vintage treasures, or as they like to call it, “junkin’.” Frustrated with what they saw as a lack of places to search for used goods, the pair started the Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market, a recurring sale held here in Arizona and a few other U.S. cities. Opening night for the spring market on Friday is a VIP experience, kicking off three days of shopping for items from art to jewelry from more than 100 vendors.
Attendees also get a complimentary drink and a canvas bag. Get first picks from 5 to 9 p.m. on April 27 at WestWorld of Scottsdale, 16601 North Pima Road. Admission is $65. The event continues from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on April 28 and 29, when admission is $8 daily. Visit the Junk in the Trunk website. Amy Young

Untidy Secrets goes grunge on Friday, April 27. The monthly storytelling series draws its themes from song lyrics, and this time around, the event will feature seven tales vaguely or literally related to Nirvana’s buzzy “Negative Creep,” a song in which Kurt Cobain yell-growls the title words a cool 12 times. Performers will include New Times contributors Amy Young and Ashley Naftule, alongside storytelling faves Stina Sieg and Marnee Burrus.
Light-wash denim and flannel are optional for the all-ages, BYOB event, and attendees might want to bring a chair, as seating is limited at Ash Avenue Comics & Books, 806 South Ash Avenue in Tempe. Though children are welcome, stories will likely include adult themes. See the Facebook event page for details. Becky Bartkowski

Independent Bookstore Day
Changing Hands was founded on April Fools Day in 1974, but the independent bookstore is no joke. Joining more than 500 independent bookstores nationwide, Changing Hands is celebrating its unique beginning — and long run — during Independent Bookstore Day on Saturday, April 28. Author readings, special day-of merchandise, and poetry on demand will be in the party mix, along with guests from activist groups like the ACLU Arizona, LUCHA, and Planned Parenthood. Like J.K. Rowling once said, “If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.”
Join the fun at 300 West Camelback Road or 6428 South McClintock Drive. The free event begins at 11 a.m. at both the Phoenix and Tempe locations, but
