a bit more about "the junction"

polka dot junction (also referred to as pd junction, pdj or just “the junction”) began in a 4th floor walk-up apartment in NYC about 13 years ago. Since then it has gone through many downs, ups, downs again and changes. returning now better than ever. For those who are new, we want to explain why you might see the name of polka dot junction and it's shortened versions, "pdj" or "the junction" in lower case text sometimes. We want you to know that we most certainly do promote and advocate for correct grammar when deemed necessary, but in order to give a sense of the playful mood we embrace, felt that the lower case text was more appropriate. As this does not benefit us in the realm of SEO (Search Engine Optimization) we have chosen to stand UP (excuse the pun) and be seen! Enough said! You can visit us on social media and in the zazzle marketplace at zazzle.com/pdjunction or www.zazzle.com/polkadotjunction.

There is something there for everyone and the express train stops frequently, so . . .

Scarecrows & Crows

Despite the fact that they are designed to be scary (at least to crows), scarecrows can be quite disarming in many ways. In fact, the scarecrows at polka dot junction are so charming that the crows actually love them dearly. Whenever you see an item featuring a scarecrow (towel, mug, pillow), you will also see perched atop his shabby old hat, a comfortable and perfectly happy crow. We have decided to include the increasing crow population at pdj in our special niche category. Why crows? Well, why not? They are highly intelligent creatures, in fact, they can hold grudges for a lifetime and they also remember kindness. At polka dot junction we are embracing a new influx of crows in hopes that they will enhance our culture, particularly in the fields of fashion and cuisine. We have mugs, tee shirts and yes, we do have crow cocktail napkins!
