Have You Seen Flea Market Style?

Pin It

I am a big fan of all publications focused on junking, antiquing, and flea marketing. They are sources of creativity and inspiration, and each has its own flavor and style. And we junkers simply cannot get enough ideas, projects, and finds! Flea Market Style is a new publication that is helping to quench the thirst of today's junkers. 

In addition to the Flea Market Style crew, I've also read that the magazine includes some of my favorite junkers...Margo@Margo's Junkin' Journal and Jane@Mustard Moon. Love these girls!

Do you have it yet? If so, tell me your favorite part about it! Until I get to Barnes & Noble, I will live vicariously through you. Junking minds want to know!

Krista's & Sarah's Booths

Pin It

You know I can never go into the shop without checking out what other vendors are selling, right? Anyone else have that issue? I thought so. Well, I thought I'd show you the spaces of two of my favorite people.

KRISTA@SNOWMAN HILL

You can see Krista's items in the photo above and below. I adore...no...COMPLETELY adore...that leather letter carrier with the pine boughs. Wouldn't that make a welcoming display on your front door? And did you notice the back of that red chair is heart-shaped?


SARAH

The rest of the photos feature Sarah's fabulous garden-style items. Her booth is a burst of spring flair and color that gets us through the winter months here in Minnesota. 





Thanks, Krista and Sarah, for sharing your unique and personal styles!

This Junk Needs a Loving Home...Adopt Now!

Pin It

A
s promised, here are some photos of the downstairs space and new goodies that need a loving home. Are you in the mood to adopt some junk? Let me tell you about some of the junk items that are up for adoption.

Look at them all. Did you know there were so many junk items that needed homes?


That pair of vintage Kennedy professional tool boxes are siblings. They are purebred Kennedy's...with official engraved signature and all. They are a bit gruff and industrial on the exterior, but they open up once you get to know them. See how nicely they are cuddling with those silver trays? Awwww! 


These three fans are as loyal as you can find them! And the scales? Well, they will definitely put a smile on your face every time you see them. Oh, and the typewriter...a romantic at heart. He can write love letters like no other!!


See what happens when junk doesn't get adopted right away? They become skin and bones. Let's hope these mirrors framed with salvaged barn wood don't suffer the same fate.


See how popular this shelving unit is? All the other junk items congregate around him. They are planning on going for a picnic later. The basket it all packed!


Mr. Cabinet was rescued from an 1800s farmhouse in southern Wisconsin before it was burned down. Sometimes older adoptees have trouble finding someone to adopt them. I'm sure that won't be the case with this gem!


This great tepee shelving unit (not sure of its age) is so great! Can't you see it in a kid's room or a cabin? He loves kids, so I'm sure he would be right at home with yours!


This large tobacco basket (1 of 3 available) needs a special adopter. She needs lots of room to roam and would really be at home in a loft or lodge. Can't you see a pair of them as headboards for two twin beds?


And the small items in the glass case...please be quiet they are sleeping. If you ask for assistance at the front desk, they will open the cabinet so you can pet the cuddly junk items!

HOW TO ADOPT JUNK FROM JUNKOLOGIE:
  1. Go to Old Town Antiques in Duluth, MN.
  2. Visit all the items in the two Junkologie booths (one upstairs and one downstairs).
  3. Choose the junk items for which you want to provide a loving home.
  4. Check out at the front desk.
  5. Take the newly adopted items home.
  6. Find a special place for them...keep moving them around until you find the right spot!
  7. Adore them each and every day!!
