JB Knacker Main Street Market and Shop Hop!

Fall is just around the corner...I can feel it, smell it and even start to see it in the crackly corn husks out in the field waiting for harvest.  The mornings and evenings are different...cooler, dewier and mellower (are those last 2 even real my mind, they work).  I love this...maybe because in the Midwest it is such a fleeting time.

The shop will be awakened w/ all things harvesty...the old place has grown kind of used to this late summer lull where wonderful pieces slip in, are placed, purchased and slip out again....all without much of a shake up at all.  It will be a gradual shake-up...over a week's time, but by next Friday (August 26th) those that are on the Fall Shop Hop will love it!

                                                Here are the details of the Shop Hop...

The 1st annual Fall Shop Hop takes place Friday, August 26th 10am-4pm and Saturday, August 27th 10am-4pm.  There are a total of 8 Story County shops on the Shop Hop:  Blumsters, Moose on the Loose & Chicken Shed Primitives...all in Huxley; Sheldahl Crossing in Slater; Julieann's in Nevada; Antique Iowa in Story City; and Left Bank Studio and JB Knacker in Gilbert!  Each shop will be having specials, treats and together we are going in on 8 gift certificates to be given away to those that "hit" all 8 shops!

At JB Knacker, we will have shop specials on Friday (and note we will be open 10am-6pm on Friday to greet Shop Hop shoppers) and fall treats served...on Saturday, August 27th it's a bit of a different story...

The JB Main Street Market will be in full swing by opening time at 10am.  This is our 3rd flea market in the shop's side yard this year and proves to be a very exciting one!  We have wonderful vendors peddling their creatively fantastic wares from repurposed jewelry to fun metal home and garden art...vintage furniture to refunked lighting...yummy baked goods to artsy primitive goods!  Do names like Mama Peacock, Jeff Tadsen, LOL Salvage, Urban Forge and Red Barn Rustics make you just a bit curious?  Other creative vendors coming ... Keith from Anything But New, Linda from Hargrove Made It, Mary Husske, Jody from Smil'in Moon, Wanda's baked goods and Pam Hobson.  If it's a wonderfully cool pre-autumn morning, the cider will be hot and no matter the temperature outside, the donuts will be heaped on a big old platter.  We will also be having handmade demos throughout the day...think metal stamping, jewelry and journal making...).
