Thoughts and Prayers are needed...

For our very dear friend Sandy. She has been battling cancer for a long time now. She has also been a very big part of the junkin' community here in the PNW. For many years we have visited her sweet little Geranium Cottage and stuffed our cars and trailers full of her wonderful finds. We've carted the junk we've bought from her to our shows and and you've gone nuts over it. She is always there when we need a little extra somethin' for a display. Today she needs us to be there for her...her battle has been long and we are asking you, Junk Sistas, to say a prayer for her and her family. Pray for comfort and peace.... The picture above is from our show last October, we crowned her our 1st annual Trailer Trash Queen...she brought her vintage trailer along and rested in it between visits in her booth. At our show in May we will again do a Breast Cancer Benefit, this time we will donate the money to the 3 day walk in Sandy's name. The last time we visited Sandy's shop we toured her trailer...inside perched proudly on the window sill was her pink crown and sash proudly displayed. Our hearts skipped a beat at the sight........that silly little crown really meant something, it gave HOPE. We love you Sandy,dear Junkin Trailer Trash Queen!

    On behalf of the 4th Ave Gals...and dear neighbors of Sandy's, Thank you for sending out a prayer request on her behalf. For those of you who know Sandy personally, you know just how special she is, and for those of you who have yet to have the blessing of knowing her, trust that you would adore her. She is the mom, neighbor, aunt, friend that you just can't seem to get enough of and is that women in your life that you could spend hours chatting with.

    Sandy, stay strong in your faith and spirit and know that amidst it all...YOU ARE LOVED AND ADMIRED!!!
    With Strong Prayers and Lots of Love,
    Tinell, Bri and Margee

  15. Sandy, you CAN beat this . . . I don't know you, but I'm praying for you. My cousin beat it! My husband (after leg amputation and later the loss of a lung) beat it . . . and YOU will beat it too!!!!!
