What Do You Like Most About Funky Junk Sister's Vintage Markets?

Is it that we bring tons of vendors with cool junk

and put them all under one roof

for your junk-a-holic shopping pleasure?

Is it the people that you meet and the laughs that you share?

Is it our knowledgeable vendors?

The special guests we bring in?

Sue Whitney of Junk Market Style.

Or is it all the cool stuff you can find?

Maybe it's the vintage trailers we bring in....

Whateveh the need to be there! It's a great place to meet all your girlfriends to spend the day laughing, giggling and on the

"hunt for good junk"!

Better make sure at least one of you has room to carry home all the loot

in their vehicle.

Cuz we know you'll find a few treasures for your humble abode!

Our next show is May 13 and 14th in Puyallup, WA.


You can't make it to that one?!! Ya'll are lucky....our summer show is August 6th in Coeur d 'Alene, Idaho.

Great Idea For The Wall

Loved this idea from Desire To Inspire. Now...all us Junk Sisters know you wouldn't have to use NEW clocks for this...VINTAGE would be our preference! Besides how fun would it be to be on the "hunt" for a collection to complete this project. Wonder how many alarm clocks will be at our May "Junk Salvation" show?

After that... you could continue to look at our

August 6th show in Coeur d' Alene, Idaho.

Do ya'll see where we're goin' with this?!!

Let Us Introduce You To Amy Hollands

Amy is a very, very busy gal. She owns Poppy and Ivy, a vintage shop in Portland, Oregon and she is a partner at Found on Fremont also in Portland. She was a vendor at our Hillsboro show and guess what? She's gonna bring all of her fabulous finds to our Puyallup show! This gal has a love for vintage things like no other. She's always on the lookout...can you blame her with two stores to fill! We're sure the brakes on her car are worn out from constantly stopping at garage and estate sales. If you get a chance to stop by one of her it! You won't regret it. She brings the best of her vintage world to our shows and she doesn't disappoint! Ladies, make a date with your best gal pals for this Spectacular Spring event, May 13th and 14th in Puyallup, Wa.

We are, I mean... I am cheap

I guess I should just admit it and keep Dixie out of this. I'm, cheap,cheap. Yesterday I took advantage of a small window of sunshine and planted some roses in my garden. After I was done I realized I needed to edge this new rose garden. Well, I would rather spend hours searching for a way to use something I already have for garden edging rather than buying it. So off to the computer I went...several hours later.... I found this awesome idea using wine bottles for edging. I love the whimsy it adds to the landscape. After another hour of browsing I came across these creative colorful steps. Clever! More surfing and I found the FAB outdoor serving bar below. I want some people might consider me a wino but it could take me forever to drink enough wine to accomplish all of these projects! Ooooh and a whole lotta money too. But wait...I have a close friend that lives next door to a wine distributor. I'll have to hit her up to help me out.
Now I just gotta figure out how to build this wine bar.... looks like theirs more surfing in my future!

Thoughts and Prayers are needed...

For our very dear friend Sandy. She has been battling cancer for a long time now. She has also been a very big part of the junkin' community here in the PNW. For many years we have visited her sweet little Geranium Cottage and stuffed our cars and trailers full of her wonderful finds. We've carted the junk we've bought from her to our shows and and you've gone nuts over it. She is always there when we need a little extra somethin' for a display. Today she needs us to be there for her...her battle has been long and we are asking you, Junk Sistas, to say a prayer for her and her family. Pray for comfort and peace.... The picture above is from our show last October, we crowned her our 1st annual Trailer Trash Queen...she brought her vintage trailer along and rested in it between visits in her booth. At our show in May we will again do a Breast Cancer Benefit, this time we will donate the money to the 3 day walk in Sandy's name. The last time we visited Sandy's shop we toured her trailer...inside perched proudly on the window sill was her pink crown and sash proudly displayed. Our hearts skipped a beat at the sight........that silly little crown really meant something, it gave HOPE. We love you Sandy,dear Junkin Trailer Trash Queen!
