Remix Market in Warrenton is now open and is giving old furniture a brand new life. It’s the sister company of eco-friendly junk removal service The Junkluggers of Gainesville VA®. Remix Market is simultaneously a resale shop, upcycling warehouse, creative space, and professional fundraiser.
What’s a junk removal business doing selling furniture and other household items? The answer is simple: a shared mission of saving the planet and helping communities. The Junkluggers know it feels good to do good. And they’ve been doing good since 2004. They are striving to eliminate 100% of reusable waste from landfills by the year 2025 by donating and upcycling used home goods.
The Junkluggers found that donation centers and charity partners were not always able to accept every item brought to them. Recognizing a need to house and recycle these items on their own, Remix Market was born.
How Remix Market Got Started
Mark Harrington is franchise owner of The Junkluggers of Gainesville VA. He recently decided to open a Remix Market in Warrenton at 6632 Electric Avenue. The Warrenton warehouse is stocked full of gently used and affordable items including antiques, home decor, quality furniture, outdoor equipment, art work and more. Beyond helping the environment, sales from Remix Market help fund the franchise’s charities of choice: Mikey’s Way Foundation and Inova Children’s Hospital.
Remix Market Warrenton is open Tuesday through Saturday from 12:00 to 5:00 p.m. Home furnishings shoppers, interior designers and DIYers all may find something they like. Plus, Remix Market offers community workshops on painting, upcycling and other furnishing techniques. Both The Junkluggers and Remix Market strive to rescue perfectly good, reusable items from being thrown away. They work together every day on a mission to directly help the environment and community.
