Hillsboro, Oregon here we come!

Yes our next Junk Salvation show is just around the corner. It's in Hillsboro, Oregon at the Washington County Fairgrounds on February 3 & 4, 2012.  Watch the video below to see what our Funky Junk Sisters Vintage Flea Markets are like. 
We guarantee you will like what you see...



This year we have added a Friday Girl's Night Out to the event in Hillsboro. It's a breast cancer fundraiser with early bird shopping from 6-9pm on the 3rd of February. 
It's a chance to shop for a good cause.
Tickets for this special event are available for sale here. 
Here's a pic from our last one.


A couple of years back we raffled off this fabulous pink tree that was decorated with ornaments donated by our vendors. Debi Ward Kennedy of Retreat Vintage Markets was kind enough to put her wonderful designer touch on the tree by putting it all together for us.

Above is another photo of a Friday Night Girls Night Out where we crowned our sweet friend Sandy, "Trailer Trash Queen". We have since lost her to cancer....every breast cancer fundraiser we do reminds us of Sandy and how we need to keep up the fight against it!!!

Won't you join us?

PARTY!!!

We told ya'll about the cool New Years Eve Party we were called to decorate...
well this is how we did it.

We started out with some old sign letters, two of them were 5 feet tall. They no longer had the neon in them but we were fortunate that they still had the white covers with them. So many letters we come across have been damaged and don't have the covers intact. 
 We wanted to light them up but we didn't want to spend a ton of money and we didn't have alot of time. Story of our lives, right, huh? Did you know you could buy Christmas light strands in bulk without the bulbs? Yep, we found that out. We bought lotsa feet of it, then we bought several hundred C9 bulbs in our favorite colors....PINK and BLUE. After screwing them all in we duct taped them to the inside of the letter. 
 Like this....nice and secure. We did have to add a plug to the end and some sort of top to the other end so we wouldn't electrocute anyone. Yikes.
 Plugged them in and here ya go! We replaced the cover and surprised our clients with the finished product. We'll show ya'll that at the end. 
 Here's a pic of the fancy hotel room we stayed in since we did attend the party that night.
 It was FAB with views of the city all around. 
 Here's the finished product with the lights of Tacoma behind. LME stands for Lights, Music & Entertainment. So cool, if we do say so ourselves. 
 The party was a blast and was enjoyed by all!!!!

Take a Break

We had a super busy week! We decorated a Posh New Years Eve Party for 350+ people that turned out fantastic so we decided we deserved  an afternoon of pleasure. 
We spent it looking through old Country Home (sniff, sniff, miss that mag) 
issues and found this DREAMY pic! 
Just stop with your busy lives for a minute and imagine yourself sitting on this bed 
with your favorite magazines on a mild summer day.....ahhhhhh! 
Wonderful huh?
