Junk Tribe Reunion

July 10th

July's market theme is "a family picnic".

I love picnics so much that I have been known to crash family reunion picnics at public parks.  They always seem so nice when you don't have to be really related to any of those people.  That is why a 2nd Satudayz picnic seems to be a fun theme, and you get to add the bonus of great shopping!  Better than any family reunion that I ever crashed.

We have some fun give aways for the early crowd and Bob is on decorating duty so you know it will be over the top.  

More info as it comes my way.  Lulu

Saturday Plan

This is the Saturday Plan.

Coffee, Craven Farm tailgate sale, Petite Retreat .

If the weather is decent Janet and I along with lots of great junk dealers will be selling our wares at the always charming Craven Farm Tail Gate sale.  This is the real deal, pre 60s junk in a field, heaven on a Saturday and then go to Petiet Retreat to visit with Deb and Bob.  They always are at the top of their game.  No detail goes unnoticed an imperfection is not found.  They are hard workers and do lovely design.  You will find useful items that you can use and will treasure for your home.

Go, shop, buy, my happy treasure hunting monkeys. 

Now that is a Saturday plan.

I am so proud

I was not at my best this Saturday, I am still sorta exhausted from doing Farm Chicks, we call it the Farm Chick hang over. (I just awoke from a 4 hour sunday afternoon nap).  I really worked all week to make this 2nd Saturdayz look and feel as good as the first one, only better, but I struggled a bit.  The day before instead of having the entire Friday to set up the UofW Architecture Grads were having a party in the space, so we could not get in until 9 pm friday nite, and then we opened the doors at 5am the next morning. Janet said that there were vendors there until 2am setting up and Janet slept in the cap of her truck. God bless her, she was up at 5. right after I arrived.

Geff had new direction signs made, and I was really pleased with how they turned out.  We still need advice on where to place them the day of the sale.  I did not hear that there was as much trouble finding us. But next month I need to get up to Mag park and place a sign 2 weeks before the sale reminding folks.  I did not do it this time.  And the traffic because it was the day of the main UofW graduation was beyond anything I could have imagined.  I am really amazed anyone was at our sale in the afternoon. Even with all that, all the vendors were lovely, good spirited and their booths looked great.  It really felt so happy and wonderful.  I am not a crier.  But when I looked around right before the doors opened Saturday morning I almost broke into tears.  I say it all the time, being with my tribe makes me happy.  Saturday made me happy.  Thank-you vendors of 2nd Saturdayz.  You guys really are the best of the best.  Next month is just around the corner and Janet and I are already working to making it amazing.

If you were a vendor or a customer please let me know if there is anything that we can do to make the experience better for you.  We do have some surprises up our sleeves for the coming year so stay tuned.  OX L

This Saturday

This is the funnest thing I have found in a long time.

A purple velvet clock, with mirrors.

Perfect fit for 2nd Saturdayz.  Which is full to the brim with vendors this time and they all have got great finds to haul in.

The fun starts at 8am for early buying and we will be in full sell mode until 3pm.

If you were over at farm chicks I know that you could use one more day of really interesting shopping and if you could not be there come and get the junk fever. 

We will be ready and waiting.  Mag park, sandpoint way, we got us made some dandy new signs and they will be pointing you in our direction.

See you Saturday.
