It's our birthday and we'll junk if we want to.....
That's right my vintage loving friends, FIVE YEARS and we're going to celebrate with a big ole junking party. We're planning on some fun facebook giveaways and there will be opportunities to win prizes during the event. So, put on your party hats and come join us on June 8th & 9th.
Until that time, we want to take a trip down memory lane! How many of you remember our first location? If you said, "The Viney Grove Community Building"...... ding ding ding, you are right! We had over 40 vendors at our first event, only one food truck and two bands that we had lined up to play. Looking back now, this seems so manageable, a snap, a breeze, a cakewalk..... but yeah, it actually took us days to mark off all of the booth spaces. So much planning, but the learning curve was huge. We were completely caught off guard when the shoppers began to arrive. We learned quickly that in an open field, (especially when good junk is involved) folks will park anywhere. So, we had to scramble to find people to help make parking rows and to keep people from blocking each other in. And by finding "people", I mean myself, my husband and Julie had to do it. It was a good problem to have, but since we also underestimated the need for people to collect admission, to empty trash cans, to keep the bathroom stocked and to run the junk booth that we decided to have, it got a wee bit crazy!!!
But we made it! Two days of slinging vintage finds and we were hooked. The vendors were amazing, and the shoppers absolutely loved the merchandise that they offered.
