Funky Junk blues

I'd really hoped to make it over to Puyallup for the Funky Junk Sisters  Vintage Flea Market but too many work assignments got in the way. The shabby sisters have rounded up quite a list of vendors who've been scouting for all the sweet things collectors love to shop for. ( I'll try not to think about that as I write and drive this weekend.)

The sisters brought in junk maven Sue Whitney, of JUNKMARKET Style, to do a couple of seminars. If you love repurposed salvage, you'll love Sue. She wrote the book. Tickets to Sue's seminars are still available.

I'm sorry I couldn't make to the sale it but I have enjoyed looking at photos on their website and facebook page. It's not too late if you're in the mood for a beautiful drive and a little flea market fun. And, if you score a fabulous find, let me know. I'll do a little "show and tell" on the blog.
