A Lovely Day

It's beautiful outside today. It's the perfect day to sit by the water and read a good book. Not just any old book...a book about the antique business. Maureen Stanton sent us a copy of her new book, Killer Stuff and Tons Of Money. She wants us to check it out and let our readers know about it. Well that's just what we are gonna do on this lovely about the ins and outs of being in the antique business. We'll see how it compares to our experiences in this fascinating world of "as we call it" JUNK!

We sell a lot of old dressers at our vintage markets. Many homeowners repurpose them as vanities for their bathrooms but here one is used for a kitchen sink. 
 This chippy table gives this dining area just the right amount of character.
 Below is an old buffet...minus the legs...brilliant!
 This sweet burlap shade is just the right touch to complete this farmhouse kitchen.
Loved the idea of using an old mailbox as an extra toilet paper holder...another great idea from The Bachman Idea House.

You certainly can find all these pieces and more at our Junk Salvation Vintage Markets...but you'll have to be an early bird shopper to get the best stuff! We will let you in on a little secret....

Got Me A Little Junkin Time In

Last night all the men in the house headed off to do other things so I decided to take some time to go thrifting. To me it seemed odd to head out after 7pm to junk, but I was determined to do the same time realizing I probably wouldn't find anything. Remember the old saying, the early bird gets the worm?

Well let me tell ya... I found tons of cool stuff! I scored a retro 50's metal cart (in excellent shape) and a bunch of old silver. Plus I ran into 3 junkin friends while I was shopping. Now I'm tryin to figure out of I really stumbled onto something or not. Is the big secret to JUNK in the evening after all the donations get put out? Hummmm...maybe all my friends already knew that!

Hay bale love.

Back when we were younger.... growing up on a farm, we cleaned out a lot 
of hay barns. 
Back then the mention of hay bales meant itchy hot chores!
Not anymore!  Who ever would have thought you could make a hay bale look elegant?

We have a party coming up in a few weeks and we will need plenty of seating for guests. 
Hay bales just might do the trick. 

Our stash of vintage linens will provide a splash of color and a bit of comfort for our bale seating. We'll string some lights, add some mason jars and get this party started!

Our next show is in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho 
on August 4, 2012. 
It's at the Kootenai County Fairgrounds. 
We'll find plenty of hay bales there. Drop by and see what we do with them!

Oh almost forgot to tell ya'll, we were named one of the 
top 25 flea markets in America by 
Romantic Homes Magazine!
Pick up the August 2012 issue today to check out 
all the best fleas in the nation!
