Big Day in Gilbert next Saturday!

Small towns have a way of throwing a really good party!  And that's what we're up to in Gilbert next Saturday, July 23rd.  The JB Knacker Flea Market is back with wonderful vendors in the side yard of the shop from 10am-3pm...Tracy from Once Was, Sarah from Mama Peacock, Tricia from Vintage 35, Mary, Becky and Lara (who haven't named themselves yet), Jodi from Smil'in Moon (maybe...Jodi if you see this call me and confirm), Tawnya's cupcakes from the Ames Cupcake Emporium and several other quality vendors!  If you were at the Flea Market on June 25th, you'll know what I am talking about...awesome vendors!  JB Knacker will be a "new" shop inside...we have to be 'cause we've sold down to the bare bones...this is going to be a fun week of gathering!!  Cold blueberry infused lemonade will be on tap all day.

We're also going to have directions to 3 great barns that are opening their big old doors and letting the vintage tumble out next Saturday:  Carter Station w/ special guest Rusty Pumpkin will be in Story City; Barntiques in Nevada and Ted's Shed in Woolstock!

Head back to JB Knacker near the end of the afternoon (2-3pm) and put your name in the drawing for a flea market cart ~ or as we call it a junker's survival kit (it will be stocked w/ some fun stuff).  You have to be present to win.  We'll draw at 3pm and then relax a bit before the tractor show begins at 4pm on Main Street...I'm thinking crappy beer and cheap wine.  So, to be legal and all, BYOB/BYOW...some good old Schlitz, Milwaukee's Best or even Boone's Farm will do nicely.  I'll have some trashy snacks (but good eats) like Ritz and cheese in a can.  There will be food down the street at Open Flame and then a band/street dance at 8pm!  What a fun little town!!

Leave a comment and let me know you're coming!
