Recently I have been on the hunt for some stools to pair with a funky old mail room worktable I found. The table is bar height and my sister (FJS#4) suggested I use it as an outdoor bar. I haven't had any luck at garage sales or CL in finding any. I even checked the local retailers to see how much they would cost new. $39 each was too rich for my frugal blood. I was trying to be patient so I tabled the project for awhile. Until last night.... my husband and I were walking late in the evening and we noticed a dumpster by the mailboxes. Something made of wood was sticking out of the top. When we got closer these are what we found! Perfect height and all!
Soon these stools will be helping us entertain our friends....stay tuned....I have plans for them, it has something to do with Margaritaville!
We have been so overjoyed by the positive response to our first ever Funky Junk Sisters Antique Show and Flea Market. Our wonderful vendors worked so hard on their offerings and their displays were fabulous. All of the hard work really paid off, this show had some of the most creative displays we have ever seen. We love that many of you made a point to meet friends, family and other bloggers at the show to make a day of it and do some treasure hunting. Through the wonderful world of blogging you are sharing your stories... here are more links (don't forget to check the links on a couple posts back too).
The Vintage Dresser
The Chic Housewife
This show had something for everyone, including this darling little guy.
Stacy Tate of Tate's Totes had gorgeous aprons and bags for sale.
Jill Radley aka Rose Petal Betty, having some fun with her mom.
"Look Mommy, this would look so cool on my bed. Can I have it?"
Katy of The Classic Farmhouse. She did a fabulous job. Her booth was located next to The Great Harvest Bread Company, she smelled that wonderful fresh baked bread aroma all day long. Just thinking about that makes us gain weight!
Luluz fun jewelry display. She had an old double wash tub with glass on top in her booth, we thought it would make a terrific kitchen island.
Look who bought our Funky Junk Sisters Retro Pink Fridge! This spunky chick teaches art classes and is going to store her art supplies in it! Fabulous!!
Liz of Seabold Vintage Market was so sweet to allow us to use her beautiful 1951 red truck in the front entrance of the show. Many snapshots were taken with it!
Patricia of Tippy Stockton had a darling booth with a fresh tangerine and aqua color scheme. We heard lots of OOOHS & AAWHS coming from this area.
Folkart Gatherings is another great shop in Sumner, WA. They specialize in primitive design.
Robins Egg Blue has such a simple yet elegant style.
Lisa of The Country Chicken has Farmhouse Funk down to a T. Just had to have one of her big flower pots on our back porch! You can find her at the downtown Puyallup Farmers Market!
