Finally, a Funky Junk Show post...


I don't know why it took me so. very. long. to get this post out. I had the photos edited the day after the show, but getting the post itself together just wasn't happening. Alas, as it was such a GREAT show, I definitely want to share these photos with you.

The show itself, organized and orchestrated by the very talented (and ambitious - a show of this size is nothing short of amazing) Funky Junk Sisters. They were so kind to let me in early on Friday evening so that I could get some photos before the flood gates opened and all of those incredibly excited shoppers hit the booths. The darling miss Dixie was at the door when I arrived with my dear friend Tiffany of Shabby Scraps. I didn't get the chance to meet sister Linda but look forward to doing so in the near future.

The show itself is a collection, and a large collection at that, of vendors from the pacific northwest. There was a wide variety of eclectic items, vintage goods, beautiful creations, and all around sparkly goodness. There were endless treasures and I didn't go home with nearly enough (in my opinion - my husband would disagree...).

If you do get a chance to go to a Funky Junk Sisters show, I highly recommend that you do. We simply don't have enough of these sorts of shows in the pacific northwest. I love the idea of re-purposing items rather than running out to the local Ikea whenever possible. Supporting shows like this enables them to grow and the growth of this particular industry is something I can really get behind.

So, without further ado, the photos~


































Thanks to the following vendors for generously letting me take photos of their beautiful booths

And the following vendors who don't have blogs or websites~

If you see something from your booth and I didn't include your link, please send me an email as I wasn't able to get cards from every vendor~

Your gorgeous photos are making their rounds, Kim . . . check out FRENCH BLUE, and you will see "our" rosette prize ribbons (I sold them at the first Funky Junk Sisters Show to Miss Tiffany). How exciting and fulfilling it is to share in a common bond--can't get enough of the beauty you express in your photos!

So great to chat with you today--bright spot in my day. I do believe we are growing into full-fledged thinking adult women who know what we want out of life...this is good at almost 40, no?

I just came upon your post and loved all the treasures you found. I'm especially interested in the horse ribbons and was wondering where and who I might
contact to find out more about them.

Great find....
