Garage Sale Queen

Funny video about junk collector “mama” who lives in an airstream trailer and drives a vintage ford pick-up truck and spends her day driving to garage sales. Video features a cameo of recording artist Elizabeth Wills and my “real” mama!

I wrote and recorded Garage Sale Queen in 2009 as a gift for my mom for Mother’s Day. When I played the song for my mom with all the family around, we all started laughing about how much fun it would be make a music video with a crazy lady who lives in an airstream trailer, drives a vintage truck, and spends her whole day going to garage sales.  One thing led to another, and sudden I found myself in the middle of shooting this video. It was the most fun I’ve had in a long time!
