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.

New Location

Sunday I started unloading the trailer into Flower Tique on the east side of the Centerville square.  Amy and I have decided to team up and combine my antiques with her flowers. It's still a work in progress but here are some pictures. ..

My Mudroom Update

So with 3 kids in multiple activities our mudroom did not have enough storage.  We had our closet and lockers,  but we needed more places to put things. So I added a couple pieces of trim that I added hooks to. I brought in a dresser from the shop for hats, gloves, scarves,  etc. And I made a charging station out of an old file box. This is working so much better!
