Just 24 hrs. to go 'til our Garden Party, and it looks like the weather may be just fine!  Hope to see you on Saturday anytime between 10am - 3pm.  We'll have hot coffee and donuts in the morning (not gourmet...but still good eats) and break out the lemonade and cookies/bars later in the day.  Vintage garden will be everywhere inside and outside of the shop on this day.  As well as JB Knacker's signature look...ornate old frames, wire locker baskets, crystal & silver, cottage pottery, vintage dresses, metal lab stools, ephemera, much more!

Saturday Deal of the Day peonies have "popped" yet...hopefully in time for next Saturday, though!

Wow, things are growing w/ all of this rain!  The Garden Party is in just one week and the plants should be pretty lush w/ all of this precipitation.  Today's (Saturday) deal of the day is: pretty little pint canning jars w/ pretty bunches of snowball flowers or lily of the valley tucked inside ~ $3.00 each!  Hope to see some of you!

Thursday & Friday Deals of the Day

Thursday and Friday deal of the day at JB Knacker will be $4.00 typewriter key charms!  We have a plethora of fun typewriter and old cash register key charms that would look great alone or added as another charm to a bracelet or funky junk necklace.  So head on over to the shop to see what we've been up to, and help yourself to a handful of $4 keys!

And remember, all of these deals are leading up to the big garden party on Saturday, May 28th keep checking the blog!

Tuesday's Deal of the Day

Just starting the yard work leading up to the garden party on Saturday, May 28th.  Well, mowing the tall grass is a start...but so much more to do.  The big girl, little girl and I are heading to the greenhouse today to pick out pretty perennials and flowering baskets or at least the "ingredients" to make them.

Now for Tuesday's (May 17th) deal of the day...# pillow covers are just $15 each!  These pillow covers measure 18" x 18" and are made from sturdy canvas and hand sewn w/ an envelope type closure.  They each come w/ an authentic typewriter key tag and look great w/ an IKEA 20" x 20" feather pillow (not incl.) stuffed into each.  The #'s we have remaining are the lucky #7 and the nice even #4 and are heat pressed onto the pillow cover in large black font...way cooler than Pottery Barn (and might I add, done at JB Knacker 1 1/2 yrs before Pottery Barn)!  At $15, they are almost 50% off retail price.  Stop in tomorrow and say "Hi" to Sarah (I'll be at a park w/ a bunch of 3rd graders checking out pond life).
