Working On the Shop

Eek! I've gone and done it...I bought a building!  Specifically a little brick church on the north side of town.  I closed on the property at the end of September, but just started working on it mid November.  I literally was working nonstop, just not on the building!  As everything else calmed down and I did have a chance to work, you have to throw in the holidays.
I have officially announced the Grand Opening for Valentine's Day weekend.  The shop will be open the second Saturday of each month, Thursday thru Sunday.  Check Facebook for more details.  I am super nervous, excited, anxious, terrified, happy...
Here are a few pictures of what I have been working on.

Southern Iowa Junk Jaunt Fall Edition

October 23rd and 24th will be our second Southern Iowa Junk Jaunt and first fall edition. The weather was looking great, a little chilly, but no rain. Today it looks like 40% chance of rain Saturday. ..hopefully that changes the next time I look.  We have even more stops this time and have taken baby steps towards having food vendors. We will have a few printed maps at each stop, where last time we only had them at one stop in each town. Now that most of us have one jaunt under our belt I think things will go even smoother!
Hope to see you there!

I'm moving out of The Hall Tree = SALE

I wanted to let you know that I will be moving out of The Hall Tree at the end of September. I will remain in Flower Tique for at least the rest of 2015. The exciting news is that I am very close to purchasing my own building!  Did I mention that it's exciting!  It's also nerve-wracking and scary! Hahaha.
Moving means a lot of work, so I'm having a sale. My furniture has been individually marked down and right now all of the smalls are 15% off. Follow me on Facebook at The Junk Parlor to stay up to date on sale details!

Southern Iowa Junk Jaunt - Fall Edition

Southern Iowa Junk Jaunt /1st Barn Sale of the year

I've been working like crazy to get the barn organized! I'm almost there and then on to pricing! Things are really going to be in the rough this time, so we will see how that goes! I have also been coordinating the first Southern Iowa Junk Jaunt with the help of Brenda from JB Knacker. She coordinates one in Central Iowa. I just keep telling myself that this first one will take the most work and that it should go easier in October when we aren't starting from scratch!  Can't wait to see how it goes!  Follow our Southern Iowa Junk Jaunt page on Facebook for more information.
