Funky Junk Sisters and I'm Committed or Should Be

On Sunday, Isabel, Joy and I made the drive to Puyallup, WA (about 2 1/2 hours north of us), to attend the first ever Funky Junk Sisters Antique Show. We decided Sunday would be better as we thought it would be less busy and we'd be able to have more time to chat with the vendors there.

It was fun to get to see and actually talk with the lovely Debi Kennedy of Retreat. She had an awesome booth at Farm Chicks and was so busy there, we never got the chance to chat. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture of her and her sweet hubby, Bob. Also on my "talked to and didn't get a picture" list is Debbie of Ormolulu. She was also at Farm Chicks the week before. I first met Debbie when we were neighbors at the Monticello Fall Premier show last year. She is so sweet and funny.

After leaving the show we headed to the town of Sumner, where we found Amy and Kris's store, Todays Country Store. So many wonderful things to look at, I forgot to take pictures inside.

Again, wish I had taken more pictures, but you can see Isabel's great one's here. On the way home we stopped at a couple Goodwill's and we all found some treasures there as well.

Here is my loot from the weekend.

Not a lot, but I love what I got!

On another note, I have some exciting news. Monday I went with my friend, Mitzi to the Stars Mall where she is opening her second booth and I signed a contract for a new space in the Stars and Splendid Mall. I'm super excited, a little nervous, but mosting excited. Even though I have a few shows coming up this summer, I just decided that I needed to reclaim my house. I brought so much stuff back from Farm Chicks and have no where to store it. I thought about renting a storage unit, but that would be like throwing money away for me, so when Mitzi told me that there was a lot of movement going on over at Stars, I thought I would check it out.

One of the reasons I'm excited about this new booth is that it will be completely different from my space at Monticello. My Monticello space will remain cute and girly with lots of pastels and roses. My Stars space will be lots of neutrals, (whites, creams, browns, blacks, metals, etc). I have a lot of organizing, retagging, swapping of stuff to do, but I'm really looking forward to it. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. I move into my new booth on Monday. Yikes!

On top of all this, we are having a "vintage sale garage sale" coming up on the 26th and 27th. Me, Isabel, Mitzi and our friend Karen, all of us dealers are cleaning out our homes, mall spaces and garages and getting rid of the old. The sale will be held in Mitzi's front yard. I'll post the address soon if you are in the area and would like to come. We'd love to see you!

That's it for me now. I'll be back soon with pictures of my new space.

I am glad that my friend and I went to The Funky Junk sale and now I know why we did not see you all, because we went on Saturday. We went to the goodwill and the salvation army just found a few treasures there. We did find some great things at The Funky Junk Sisters Sale. I got some great photos too. I will post them too. I have one more post for Farm Chicks to do then on to The Funky chicks. I loved to come to the garage sale.

Oh wow - it all looks so lovely - I had to double take at the location - you ladies look more quintessentially 'English' than the English here!

Y'all look too stinking cute for words!
How exciting for you. I remember when Stars would be in Home Companion a lot. Do the same people own it? It always looked like a great place to shop and really trend setting! What a great oppotunity. Good luck and get cracking!

Wow, that is exciting news about *Stars*-just one more reason to get to Portland to shop! I hear ya on re-claiming your house:) Just don't wear yourself out-I struggled when I was at more than 1 place. Can't wait to see the *new* look- I've divided my space into the 2 looks-but the girly look is still what is selling here...
My daughter is loving her *bling* from Farm glad you did well AND had fun! I didn't want to leave:)
