A Funky Junk Weekend!

What an amazing weekend and experience! The Funky Junk Sister's Vintage Flea Market was so much fun. I didn't realize how busy I was until I looked at my pictures. I missed getting so many images to share with you. I wanted to document the whole weekend in pictures, but was just too busy and I missed capturing so many things and great people!

I guess I will just start. We left home at 4:30 a.m. and arrived in Puyallup at 8 a.m. Just in time to start setting up. It went so smooth, cuz I had the help of my son, Jake, (now known as the "Junk Hunk"). We finished and were able to go to our hotel and freshen up before the special workshop with Sue Whitney at 5 p.m. Everything after that is a blur. I have never been a vendor where there have been so many wonderful shoppers! The night went by very fast. Unfortunately, we were absolutely exhausted and skipped the Rodeo Dance.
It sounded like a good time was had by all.

Saturday morning we arrived, fortified ourselves with coffee and were ready for the day.
I met wonderful vendors from the area and many, many great shoppers!
Everyone was so nice. I wish I could have visited more with everyone.


This little cutie modeled my pet bed for me. A perfect fit!

Again, I didn't get as many pictures of people. This is Diane's space (Molly Mo's). It was so lovely and fresh - very Diane! I loved that bright punch of color from the parasols.


This is Diane, Dixie and me in front of the Funky Junk Sisters-mobile.

Linda and Dixie were absolutely the sweetest and so much fun.
Many thanks to both of them. They worked so hard to put on this great event.
And ...

I want to thank everyone that visited my space. It was a pleasure to meet
you all and hope that we see you in our "neck of the woods" in the near future! M.
P.S. Yes, that is a "tiara". It's a piece of lace tatting with a piece of floral jewelry sewn to the front. Not something I ever thought I would wear, but it was fun.

Nice pictures, Martha, and your dogbeds were regal. You are, in my opinion, a wonderful Mom. I hope my sons will be as sweet to me as Jake is to you, and to deranged shoppers like me!! Truly a job well done! I posted a bit about the show, too. Are you doing FarmChicks??

Looks like it was a big hit Martha!
We had a great time in Snohomish too! Next year we'll have to make sure they're not on the same weekend!

My sis in law was there Fri night and had a ball. She came up "north" after her visit and shopping spree with you guys, spent the night and then "did" Snohomish Saturday! Can you say Power Junker???

Great booth and love the tiara!
Hugs,

It was nice to meet you (briefly) I had the baby yellow lab puppy. I'm so glad you made the trek to our neck of the woods and hope you come back in the fall! We have put the Molly Mo show on our calendar hope to try and get there in august!
