The Funky Junk Sisters brought in a GREAT Crowd! Most of the morning you could'nt hardly get through my booth! Here's a pic of my little tiny booth (i'm not use to that) it was really a double, but my happy camper took up most of my space I decided to add the crochetted lace bedspreads on the awnings at the last minute, everyone loved it!
This is a little more fufu than I usually do, but the ol gal was really taking to the fluff, so I just ran with it!
Even a little lingerie hangin out to dry, oh well if my dirty laundry is going to get aired I might as well be the one airin' it!
Stumbled onto this awesome restraunt with the hubs Friday night! I'm sure alot of you Oregonians know about McMennamins?
Loved loved loved this lit up arbour leading through the woods to the restraunt!
Don't you just want this in your backyard?
Wow did we ever have a FUN FUN time at the Junk Salvation Show in Oregon!
My Hubby went with me this time and we had a blast. The show was Fabulous! and the people were even better than fabulous!
I got to see so many friends from Oregon and I met so many super duper new friends! Loved the happy happy people who loved my "happy lil camper"!. Everything just went so smoothe which doesn't usually happen, usually there is some small glitch, but not this time! I think it was probably, because I had the master of all trades with me ( except decorating) thank god he knows better than to go there!:)
Thank you to everyone who was just so super sweet and complimentary about my little camper. I don't know what it is about these little vintage trailers, but they really reach out and touch people in a way that I have never seen or felt before. They just make me and so many of you HAPPY!
Thank you all for letting me share in a little bit of happiness with you:)
Well today was suppose to be all about packing up for the show, but something even more exciting was going on on the compound. The compound is our property that has 4 seperate houses all occupied by my relatives, my brother, my dad and my son and then our house. So you see there is ALWAYS something going on around here and today was no different. As alot of you know my mom passed shortly before Christmas, which has left me with my dad adjusting to life alone next door. Well, you see this sweet Harley I'm on? This is the newest member of the compound. Dad, sweet ol' 81 year old Dad bought himself a "hobby" today. To keep himself busy he says. To keep ME busy worrying about him , but i've got to tell you that bike gave me a feeling I haven't had in about 35 years when I used to ride dirt bikes as a teenager.OMG am I going to have to get me a Harley to keep an eye on my dad? I loved it and I'm going to have to sell a ton of junk to get me one of these sweet bikes!!
So 9:00p.m tonite in the dark we finally get the junk all loaded and strapped down.
I sure hope the little tin can can handle the load for the Junk Salvation show! I tried reall y hard to pack "light" but you know I wouldn't be a true blue junk girl if I didn't fill every last inch of the truck and trailer!
A Grassroots movement to save small businesses, the heart and soul of America!
Last week I found out about a great non-profit organization, the 3/50 Project, from a fellow retailer.I am a small business owner along with my business partner Kris Williamson we opened our antique store nearly 10 years ago in A town that alot of people refer to as "mayberry" Our Mayberry is Sumner Washington 30 minutes south of Seattle.I'm not only a business owner but also a consumer and today more than ever I am reminded that WE cannot take these small towns for granted or they will cease to exist.If you the people (our customers, friends. family,neighbors, myself included make a conscious effort to support your local businesses (please click on to the 3/50 website at the top of the page)you will see that it really doesn't take much to support our community if we ALL just think ahead a tiny bit.For business owners this organization has put together a wonderful flyer that you can distribute to your customers promoting how and why they should (continue to) shop locally. To request one for your store, visit their website www.the350project.net and register as a supporter.
Thank You so much!
