Member Junkers {not so} Anonymous

Last week, when we had a conversation with one of our friends and customers at the Mineola Antique Fair. Their family has come 4 shows in a row and even came twice last weekend (and they won two of the door prizes being given away.) 

As they were leaving they said "we'll be back next month, it's like Junker's Anonymous... We have fun and can't stay away!" 

Junker's Anonymous... It immediately hit me that it had to be a graphic and most likely it's a new shirt in the works! 

Are you a member of the 
Junker's {not so} Anonymous Club?

You know, we can't keep it a secret that we have junk everywhere...the back of our trucks, yard, storage sheds, house... we love junk and we aren't afraid to show off what we do with it! 
We aren't really anonymous at all!! 

Whatya think? Should it be on the back of a shirt????????

Christmas Shows and New Items!

It's been a busy time of year and we realize we haven't set down to share here on the blog. So we thought we would play catch up today and share a few things. Over the lat few weeks, we have had 3 shows and been super busy sewing and creating, plus we've had some extra responsibilities, behind the scenes.

Last weekend we were at the Mineola Antique Fair and we had lots of fun! Here's a few pictures I shared on Facebook after the show.

The weekend before, we were at the Christmas Bazaar at the First United Methodist Church in Gilmer. My mom joined Angea and I for that show, with some of her leather and crochet items.

If you couldn't make it to one of our shows, I have added lots of new things in my etsy shop! These are some of the shirts, new tags, and ornaments that are now available.

tart pan Christmas ornaments

Everyone ask us "when we sleep" and "if we are doing anymore Christmas shows?" 

Well, for several weeks, it seems like we slept from 12:30-6 ish, although this week we are catching up on some of that as well! We have enjoyed a few quieter days to work on orders, add new items to my shop, and breath a little. 

Our next show is December 8-9, 2018 at Mineola Antique Fair. We want to enjoy the holidays and also focus on adding more items to my shop and we have some Christmas decorating jobs on the schedule.

Extra, Extra Read All About It! A few pop up shows to tell you about!

Extra, extra, read all about it! We have several holiday shows and bonus dates to tell you about!! 

1. Mineola Antique Fair special pop up show Saturday, October 27. 10-3 Same place as our usual show, but this is a special opening on the last Saturday of the month. (Angea has said there's going to be a good pumpkin sale!) 

2. First United Methodist Church Christmas Bazaar in Gilmer on November 3. 9-4
This will be in our hometown and give our local friends a chance to shop and try on clothes and see/shop other items in person. This will be indoors in the church gymnasium, so come out rain or shine! (Our setup will not be as big or elaborate as our Mineola space, although we still have lots of things.)

3. Bonus shopping night at Mineola Antique Fair on Thursday night before the regularly scheduled monthly event. Thursday night wine and snacks from 5-8. Friday and Saturday 9-5.

Angea aka Rooster Tails and I will be at all these events! 

As another bonus, my mom will be joining us in Gilmer with some of her handmade leather and crochet items! Over the past two and a half years, she has had an incredibly tough medical journey and has taught herself to crochet and make leather cuffs, jewelry, journals, and knife cases (think man gifts) while she has been mostly home and not able to do the outside work she was used to. She has an etsy shop (Diamond J Designs) with a few things in it and has never done a show before. So this will be the first time her items have been available in person and she'll have more than what's listed in her shop. I went Christmas shopping at her house last year and everyone loved what she made!

Of course, I'm working on new inventory for all these events plus trying to get them added to my etsy shop as well. The last week has been nothing but rain and very gloomy weather, so I haven't been able to photograph items. If you see something specific in my etsy shop that you would like to see at one of the shows, please let me know and I'll make sure I bring it for you. (I don't load and take all my clothes and wreaths to every event.) I can't wait for you to see the new shirts I've been working on this week, so stay tuned to facebook and instagram for the most up to date sneak peeks. 

Our Mineola space will also be open the second weekend in December and I think there is going to be another bonus opening before Christmas. More details and announcements to follow about those times. 

Here's a recent pictures from Mineola, to give you an idea of some of the things you'll find in our booth. 

We hope you can come out to some of these events! We look forward to meeting and visiting with all of you!
