Chantel (Schock) Grosulak(’97) Grows Consignment Store

Source: Jamestown Sun

Refurbished tables, desks and shelves adorned with a variety of crafts and antiques are spread throughout the downtown Jamestown store Junk in the Trunk. Chantel Grosulak, co-owner of the store, said the store has something for everybody.

Along with the owners’ repurposed furniture and rummage finds, the store also carries items from a variety of consignors, some who also work in the store, Grosulak said. The consignors pay a commission to have their products in the store, which goes toward paying the rent, she said.

They have a wide variety of inventory including homemade furniture paint, jewelry, crafts and the cookbook, “Recipes for my Daughter.”

“There’s really nothing else like it in town,” Grosulak said. “Things don’t always have to be brand new. We get customers that say they like to have a variety of new and old stuff.”

Grosulak said they are looking forward to their first summer in the new location, when the store will be open every day except Sunday. The women are also hoping to get a clothing line in the store.

Junk in the Trunk will be hosting a Curvy Flamingo Boutique clothing party – an event that is open to the public – from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 12 at their new location:
107 1st Ave. S.

Junk in the Trunk is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.

Chantel (Schock) Grosulak graduated from UJ in 1997 earning a secondary education degree with an English major and an Art History minor. She is about to complete her 20th year as the English Teacher and high school librarian at Pingree-Buchanan School System in Pingree, ND.
