Here at JB Knacker, we're looking forward to the good 'ol month of July! We are open regular hours this Saturday, but will be closed on Monday, the 4th...and then back to our regular summer hours after that (Mon.-Fri. 10am-6pm & Sat. 10am-3pm).
After Junkin in June last Saturday, I have been recovering...got a little bit of a chest cold. But getting a little run down was never so worth it! The crowds were amazing even in the rain...they never stopped coming. The flea market vendors did a superb job w/ really wonderful stuff and display...thank you all! And I have heard wonderful comments from the occasional sales and shops that were on the route..."best day we ever had"..."it was amazing"...and one gal just shook her head and smiled in disbelief! So thank you customers for sharing this day w/ us. Is there another in the works for this year?...stay tuned...maybe October'ish?!! Oh...I forgot to say congratulations to the winners of our junk survival kits...Shelley and Miccia.
In the meantime, we are gathering and sprucing up all of the empty spots in the shop. We have a very pretty Queen Anne style table and 4 caned back chairs coming in by Saturday. New old concrete in the form of a cute bird bath and big tulip shaped urn will be in soon. The best old cabinet cards and lace will be in the shop by tomorrow. More cute metal lockers in blue and white...coming soon. Fun ornate mirrors just leaning up against my hickory tree at home will be in shop tomorrow as well. And best of all, my mom and sister and I are going on a little road trip tomorrow to gather more finds (hope I feel better)!
JB Knacker will be host to the 2nd flea market of the summer in the side yard of the shop on Saturday, July 23rd from 10am-3pm (the later start gives our vendors that come from a little farther away a fighting chance to get the booth set and ready to go). Many of the same vendors as last Saturday will be here as well as several new ones! That day is in conjunction w/ a "shop hop" going on between the towns of Huxley, Nevada, Story City and good old Gilbert! Also a car and tractor show will be happening on Gilbert Main Street that day...lots of good old fashioned fun! That's the news for now...have a wonderful 4th of July!
