The shop has been rolling right along into this summer of 2012. The days have been wonderfully warm. Industrial urban and sweet cottage seem to be the best sellers so far this season: blue mason jars w/ zinc lids, metal-topped wood tables, wire baskets and old books. The advertising for our area's big event, Junkin' in June, is going to print soon in the regional papers. The shop is beginning its big change w/ all sorts of new old stuff finding its way in. The shed out back has been cleaned out, the old dirt floor leveled and rocks and straw put down. This old building will be filled w/ architectural salvage and other fun pieces. The family is coming to terms with the fact that they're help is extra important in the next week.
The flea market in our side yard is full...13 quality vendors peddling all sorts of vintage, repurposed and just plain great stuff! The doors to the shop and flea market open at 9am on both the 29th & 30th, but I'm certain early vintage groupies will not be turned away! We will be working hard all day both days of this event to have things fresh, restocked and fun for you! The last 2 hours of each day (3-5pm), JB Knacker will have 20% off of everything in the shop. I will also be having a drawing for a Junkin' in June give-away the last 1/2 hour of each day (4:30 pm)...you must be present to win! Thank you for those of you that have been following along w/ this blog, Facebook and/or my emails. I appreciate all of you and wish you the best this summer!
