The BIG CJ

We thought we'd shake things up a bit this week and instead of showing you specific recent arrivals, we'd instead focus on a global perspective of Construction Junction showing you the broad categories of inventory we always have on hand as well as a few other things you can always expect to find.

This message is short and sweet, but hopefully provides you with a view of CJ that is both intriguing and informative.  Please be sure to share our e-Blasts with friends and family who you think might enjoy receiving it.  Folks can always sign up to receive our e-Blasts at http://www.constructionjunction.org/contact.

CJ Q&A

Does Construction Junction ever receive any items that you find it really hard to part with or decide not to sell?

Yeah we do... for example check out this item.  Survival biscuits from 1962.  Wonder if they're still edible?  Although we had $25 on this item originally, we later decided not to sell it.  It makes us laugh.
