Junk Salvation

Are we really approaching the end of September?
The Puyallup Fair is half-over and
we're past the midpoint of the month, so I guess so!?!
You know what that means???

It means that Margee, Bri and I are gearing up BIG-TIME for the upcoming
'Junk Salvation Show'; presented by the Funky Junk Sisters, Linda and Dixie.

I found myself reaching for a brown paper bag last week so that I could breathe into it and try and prevent myself from hyperventilating.
Or at least it seemed that way.

So I got my bearings together and made my
'Junk Salvation To-Do-List'
(...for those who know me, I am known for making lists-it's the 'Type-A' planner side of me).
I've come to accept it and embrace it.

Sew my apron for the show...CHECK!!! (and it's oh so cute!)
Cleaning My Treasures...CHECK!!!
Tagging...IN PROGRESS!!!
Create a few more treasures...
Sew Pillows...
Paint an incredible find(tease)...

I am eager to put 'CHECK' next to each of these items... time.
I have a month after all.
...well, not really, the show is October 15-16
(technically, less than a month away)

So today, while the hubb was working, I loaded up a few of my favorite treasures and brought them in the house (the garage was damp and muggy) for pricing.

I thought that I would provide you all with a 'sneak-peak' teaser of a few of MYmost favorite items that will be at Junk Salvation.

Here is an overview of 'Pricing-Round One.'

An up-close...
Notice the:
-adorable mustard color enamel teapot,
-apple print cake 'caddy' (I think cake 'caddy' sounds more fun than cake plate?)
-vintage Santa Claus tree topper
-vintage Elf-on-a-Shelf
-hobnail vases

-another enamel teapot (a little more contemporary version)
-incredible Ball canning jars (in classic blue)
-four fun enamelware tea cups
and my most favorite...

The Farm Fresh Milk Box with four glass milk jars.
You can't tell but behind this little presentation of treasures, I have my own cardboard milk carrier with bottles and I used it A LOT this summer as a centerpiece full of hydrangeas.
(What would you do with it?)

I A.D.O.R.E. these!!
They will be sold individually because I think that they are cute enough to either stand alone or as a pair on a long fence or potting bench.
They are priced at only $12 a piece...what a steal!

And I'll end my teasing with this little sweetie.
It's a child metal tray with four different nursery rhymes printed on it.

Try as I may, I just haven't been able to find the 'perfect' spot for it in my home...
Do you have a spot for it in yours?

OK....I have a job for you.
OK, well get ready.
I'll wait.
Get a pen and your calendar.
Turn to October.
Mark Junk Salvation on October 15 AND 16.
That's right...both days.
Why both, you ask?
Because Friday Night's $15 admission gets you in both days...
...and vendors will be putting out new stuff Friday night after y'all have left.
It's worth the trip back Saturday morning.

(And in case you're hitting Starbucks prior to visiting,I'd love a Grande, Non-Fat, STIRRED Caramel Macchiato)

Just kidding...well unless you really are stopping...I'll pay you back.

HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE... sure and stop by to say hello!
