Heavy lifting gets real at JUNKFEST...Big Bertha was SOLD!

Our friends Diane and Linda from the Barn Chix
 had a "little" something up their sleeve when they arrived at JunkFest...

 Let's just call her BIG BERTHA...
and believe us when we say this old merchant cabinet was incredible!
15 feet long and 31 drawers of vintage glory!

These unsuspecting Junk Hunks
had no idea what they were about to 
be called to do!

After all,....
they had already had to wrestle a man to the ground who was trying to sneak in under the fence!
(Actually a very nice vendor who was just joking around with some of our "security" officials!)

When the call came in that "Bertha" was sold,
it was ALL hands on deck!

At this point, she was still on dollys with wheels...

...Then came the heavy part!
I believe i counted 11 guys .
(I hope they all lifted with their knees & not their backs!! )

...and she was up!

With all the hunks workin together...
BIG BERTHA filled the newly purchased trailer (and then some!)

We certainly couldn't do it without you!

Now, here's a tiny peek at what was JunkFest 2013:

Pumpkins galore!...

Junque to treasure...

the colors of fall...

...and the smell of mini donuts in the air!!

Gosh, what's not to love!??

Stay tuned.  More pictures to follow.

Mann Made Signs & Crafting Adventures

One of the perks of hosting JunkFest is meeting all the great shoppers from across the tri-state region (and beyond).  But what's really great about the junking business and the sale we host, is meeting the incredibly talented, artistic, and inspirational folks that are travelling great distances to help us put on a stellar show! 
That category of people includes Jodi Mann, of Mann Made Signs from International Falls, MN.  Jodi is co-owner of "No Place Like Home" antiques store, and still manages to sell her hand made signs at many shops and events across ND and MN.



Like so many others, Jodi also has a FB page, where you can see some more of her work here.  All I can say is, WOW has this girl been busy!
Thanks for joining us this year Jodi....cannot wait to see your creations!!

Returning vendor Heidi Bear of Crafting Adventures brings her fun fresh mix of hand crocheted hats, cowls, blankets, and chunky necklaces.  Heidi has me longing for fall and winter just so I can snuggle up in one of these adorable hats or cowls!





Heidi also sells these accessories on Etsy, and can also be found on FB here.  Welcome back Heidi!
