Greg Hawk and Benjamin Marx are, in the very literal sense, junkies. The two have been acquiring and selling salvaged goods to middle men and repurpose-minded retailers through venues like Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market, Hawk's retail space, VISN ( which stands for vintage, industrial, simple, and natural), inside Qcumberz, and Marx's newly established Rescue Industrial Salvage.
And despite being fairly new to the public salvage scene, the duo has collected a significant amount of discarded treasures, from vintage schoolbooks and antique cameras to industrial signage, rusted car parts, and, well, you name it.
But now it's time for them to do a little winter cleaning. That's where you, your last-minute holiday shopping, and Friday's pay check come in.
Hawk and Mark will be hosting their first-ever, two-day sale this Saturday and Sunday, December 21 and 22, in the parking lot of Artistic Arborist.

Both days, the pop-up sale will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., accepting cash and credit (but preferably cash). There's no admission fee and inventory will sell on a first come, first served basis.
Depending on how much "junk" the parking lot can hold, Hawk and Marx will either put all of their inventory out on the first day, or hold off on some items until they have more room the second day.
