You will not find anything like this place back home. No, SERIOUSLY, you will NOT find anything like the Junkman's Daughter, Atlanta's Alternative Super Store, anywhere except here in the edgy; well, over-the-edge Neighborhood of Little Five Points.
It all began in 1982, when Pam Majors, who really is the daughter of a Junkman, rented a 1,000 square-foot storefront. She filled it with tchotchkes and dead stock from her parents 40 year accumulation of stuff, and began adding her own take on weird and wonderful. Her eye for the bizarre but beautiful drew everyone from neighborhood folk, artists, musicians and trendsetters who were obviously followed many celebrities! In Dec of 2016 we lost our beloved Pam. However, the Junkman's saga continues under the ownership of her son, Moss Mills.
