Saturday, October 29th 9-3

The "Fall Happening" at the barn is less than a week away! Hope you can all get out on this nice fall day for what will probably be the last opening of the year. The barn is full and stuffed with fun vintage, salvage and repurposed items for your home decor and many gift giving ideas. Bring a friend, enjoy some coffee, snacks and a real fun time with us at the barn! 

Hope to see you on Saturday!

                    Will there be a fall happening? Stay tuned...
    Fall is the perfect time of year, and what a great one this has been! Harvest is going great, the trees are full of color, and the weather has been exceptional ( I know...a little rain would be nice...but it's just hard to complain about perfect!).
   I am still watching the weather to determine if I will be open the 29th of October, be sure to stay tuned for the latest updates on that, but until then... just a few pictures from the barn.

   WOW! I just can't believe how time flies...summer is just slipping by. Sweltering hot days and just perfect days all mixed together - that's summer. I've spent a lot of time since the July opening squirreling away many "new" treasures for the next opening (September 24th).
   To kick off the beginning of the harvest season I will be at the JB Knacker side yard flea market on Saturday, August 27th. Check out the JB Knacker blogspot for all of the details. This should be a fun-filled weekend with area shops participating in the 1st annual "Shop Hop."
   Next week I will begin posting pictures of all of the "newest" treasures that will be in the shop for the September opening. Until then "Happy Junking."

Junkin' in June Success! Thank You!

Saturday was wonderful! Thank you to everyone who came out and braved the rain! I was concerned when I woke up Saturday morning but it turned out to be a great Junking in June day!

   Wow! Where has the time gone since the last sale? A great big thank you to all of you who came to the barn in May and made it such a fun day...hope you are all enjoying your treasures! It was good to see all of you - new faces and familiar ones!
   The June sale is just 16 days away (Sat. June 25 9-4pm) and I'm afraid that I have been neglecting my blog. Sometimes I fear that I have nothing to say that will interest anyone, but this time there's great news...I have been busy rummaging through barns and old farm buildings stocked full of treasures. I have found old windows, screens, cupboards, tables and architectural pieces too many to mention. So I hope everyone will forgive me this time for not being inside at the computer, and I promise there will be many new pictures posted soon!
   June 25th will be a busy day so remember to block off your whole day! JB Knacker in Gilbert will be open with flea market vendors in their side yard as well as at least 5 more occasional sales from Boone to Nevada. Each sale should be able to direct you to the other sales - so be sure to block out plenty of time for treasure hunting!

Spring is here!!!

It's time to get started with projects, gardening, and decorating. Out with the old in with the new! The nice weather and the landscape turning green again I'm inspired to start projecting again! My many new winter finds will soon be taken to the barn to get "re-vamped!" I look forward to the upcoming "junking" season and all the great finds! Look forward to seeing you at my first opening! Watch for open dates to be announced shortly! 

Until then, happy junking!
