More Pictures From The Funky Junk Sisters Show!

Friday night was a blur.... the weather was blustery and the warehouse was filled to the brim with junk and lots and lots and lots of shoppers! Before the doors opened we had a photographer come in and take photographs for a magazine, they are doing a story on flea markets. We'll give you more info on that later. All of us junkies need a turquoise suitcase, don't we? This one was courtesy of the sisterhood of traveling junk.
Pink, pink, and more pink from JohnBobCoolJunk!

Today's Country Store never disappoints!

More pink from Tippy Stockton!

Pat & Billie were from Ellensburg, their specialty was vintage tablecloths.

These gals were a riot, Prudence & Julie, they really kept things lively in their corner of the show!

A sweet southern belle wouldn't be caught dead without her sunshade and Jill Radley had her decked out wonderfully, in pink of course!

Here is an excited shopper that just won a door prize. We made her wait for us to get a snapshot of the pink 50s vintage bra she won! Wonder what she will do with it? Maybe Madonna will want it for her next video!

Fun Junk out of Olympia had lots for shoppers to dig through. Digging is part of the fun when you are junkin....

So glad someone brought the hubby along to carry things out to the car. Do you think he will do the laundry with this thing too?

Vintage clothes and trolley signs from Europe. We absolutely loved this booth (Home Economics), it offered such unusual finds.

Liz Perry had a collection of old thermos jugs.

Can you find the coffee drink in this picture!?!

A sweet vintage stove filled with fabric pumpkins from Retreat.
Make sure you keep checking the links in the post below, it seems everyone is talking about The Funky Junk Sisters Show.

It Was All So Wonderful!

Our show was an overwhelming success! We will share pics and write more about it later. First we thought we would share some of the blog posts that others have written. Below are links to those.... We just had to show you the newest and cutest little funky junk sisters. These little darlins are Liz Perry's daughters. It seems they have the junk gene in their blood, mama's cousin is Teri Edwards, one of the original Farm Chicks!
Aren't they adorable? They posed in front of our Pink Christmas Tree that Mary Anderson of Whidby Island won!
We will update this list daily, so check back often. Oh, and if we have missed one, please leave a comment to let us know and we will ad it!

We are busily tending to things for our fabulous vintage flea market coming up this weekend. We needed some cake plates for serving our desserts at Friday nights fundraising event so..... we went junkin! I took a couple of shots to let you see The Funky Junk Sisters in action. Luckily I am the camera gal so I always avoid shots of me, but here is a look at sisters #1 & 3 doin their thing. Here's our idea. You will get a chance to see it all at our delicious dessert buffet Friday night.
One more picture.... just wait til you see the transformation of this huge warehouse into a wonderland of vintage treasures for all junk queens (kings too).

The Weekend Flea Part 1

This past weekend I was lucky enough to wander off to the Sandpoint Antique Market. It was such a beautiful day, here is a picture of the scenery from the 520 bridge....shhhhh, don't tell anyone that I was driving across the bridge when I took this shot (the beauty of I phones). The Seattle area truly is a beautiful place to live!
I arrived at the flea market to find several of the vendors that will be at the Funky Junk Sisters Show in a couple of weeks, including Jill Holmgren. She had a set of these fabulous chairs. So Paris don't you agree? Can you say oui oui?
I wonder if these clocks are set for Paris time?

I visited with JohnBobCoolJunk too.
I was drawn to these bins full of vintage fabrics. There is something fun about having to literally dig through piles of stuff. They have tons of vintage barkcloth. John & Bob told me they are saving some really special stuff for our show....can't wait to see it!

Retro glasses in a serving tray no less! JohnBob did you pick these up on your trip back East?

The sweet Debi Burton of Ormolulu always has lots of eye candy.

More from Debi.
I'll have more pics tomorrow....

Ladies, grab your girl friends, pile in the old station wagon and come on over to our vintage flea market!

The Funky Junk Sisters Show has become home to some of the most exciting home furnishings, antiques and collectibles that can be found anywhere. The genuine, down-home human relationship between vendors and shoppers is the reason people keep coming back. This is a place where you can slow down, visit, ask questions, talk to collectors & antique dealers, and meet the artists and craftsmen who create one-of-a kind items.

It is just two weeks away, and we are hearing about wonderful treasures our vendors have collected just for you. Get their early, (at least before Funky Junk Sister #1 aka MOM shows up) the good stuff goes fast! The market opens up Friday evening 6pm October 23rd with our big fundraiser event to benefit breast cancer awareness! If you can't make it then, come on Saturday and spend the whole day shopping (90+vendors) and drooling over all the cool vintage things.

We can't wait to meet you!

Linda & Dixie

Vendor Profile~ Dawn of Great Findz

We were browsing around one of our favorite blogs a few weeks ago, My Sweet Savannah, and saw a post that featured one of Melaine's friends, Dawn. Once we saw these pictures, we remembered Dawn's booth from the Farm Chicks Show. Her booth was so busy, you could hardly move in it!
We are pleased to announce that Dawn will be a vendor at our Fall Show and shes bringing some great finds! She scours Seattle estates and fleamarkets looking for fun & quirky items for the home.
We especially love her pillows on her etsy site. And her burlap designs are to die for!

She is PINK!!! Isn't she lovely? We can't wait to see her all dressed up for the party on October 23rd! Our special designer, Debi Ward Kennedy has big plans for her!

Our vendors are donating pink ornaments and they are beginning to arrive too! We are receiving so many packages right now that we feel like we are getting married again!
Below is a glittery pink star from Todays Country Store.
Some of the ornaments are vintage like these from Fun Junk....
and these from Pat & Billie of Outback Antiques and Favorite Finds in Ellensburg, WA.

More vintage from Tracy Rowe also of Ellensburg.
This one is a darling handmade clown from The New England Saltbox in Sumner, WA.
Hey all you girlie girls out there, you can have this tree all dolled up in your living room. All you have to do is buy a raffle ticket at our show on October 23 or 24. The proceeds from this raffle will benefit The Breast Cancer Resource Center in Tacoma. Jump on the bandwagon, help us help breast cancer survivors and find a cure!
