Even with our house on the market, I was trying to squeeze as much junkin' and painting in as possible. I know one couple that came to see our house in July got to see my furniture projects in action. Half way through painting the top of a dining table...phone rings...realtors says "we'll be right over"...husband and I madly pile furniture into the corner of our backyard. And I'll never forget the couple that came during one of the "surprise" showings that peeked into the garage and saw the naked vintage mannequin that I'd just picked up laying right in front of the door. I hadn't had a chance to take it to storage yet. Needless to say, the shut that door quickly and left! Doesn't everyone have one of those laying around? I couldn't quite give up the junkin' habit, I just had to squirrel it away elsewhere (No, I'm not a hoarder).
But on with the show...The Funky Junk Show that is! I'm so excited to be part of this weekend up in Sandpoint. I knew it would be a bit challenging with potentially moving, but I wouldn't miss it for the world. The gals that put on the show, Hollie and Jennifer, are incredibly awesome women. There isn't enough I can say about them. Hard-working, talented, and moms to boot, they put on such a great show with a friendly atmosphere. Here are the details:
September 4th & 5th
Saturday & Sunday; Labor Day Weekend
Oden Hall Grange (134 Sunnyside Rd.)
10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
$2 admission (good both days!); 12 and under free
To get to Funky Junk: Wait until Labor Day Weekend, then go through Sandpoint on Hwy. 95; be in the right lane at the junction & continue on Hwy. 200; about 7 miles NE of downtown, take the Sunnyside Rd. exit and you're there! Follow the Funky Junk signs to the junk retreat of the season!
And an added bonus - I've had the privilege to make the official Funky Junk Bubble Necklaces for the show! Look for them next to the Funky Junk t-shirts and the first two shoppers in line get a free necklace!
Hope to see you there!!
