~Bring It... The Junk that is & a TRUE Junk Marketer (HINT) visits Me @ The Poet!~

Back to the Junk.... I am bringing it to you ..... the JUNK!!! The previous pics of the Junkin spot from earlier in the week.... yep all of these goodies came right from there today!!! Never have I got this many good pieces in one haul!! What a cool junk day & I am pooped!! I did find those adorable old wood shutters waiting right on side of the road in a big ole trash pile today!! There were two old chippy doors too for free but they were way to heavy for me to muster up into the back of the packed truck bed....yep junking by myself today. OK... I did get a call from The Sleepy Poet late this afternoon, seems I had a visitor in my booth... Sue from Junk Market Style Magazine!!! Click on Junk Market Style link to read her post about us!!! Totally siked by this....and she was wanting to know who Artsy Fartsy was... well I was in Harris Teeter grocery shopping when they called me, I about peed my pants and squeeled like a pig in the salsa isle!!! She totally was digging my Garage Sale Pendant, so much she wore it out!! A BIG thank you to he for all the purchase, she has truly made my weekend!! I am totally humbled by the compliments from her and her team, I asked them over and over if she had the right Janna??? They said yes, what an awesome day, I feel so very blessed that my stuff was loved!!

Mirror Mirror.... just loved the this old pic I snapped of the Mirror and the Rust!!

Now I had to grab this little childs old piano this week when I was thrifting... I passed it by but then I kept going back, yep caught my eye in a big way, what ya think??? I thought it may make for an interesting display, kinda has that shelf look to it!! The old child print was a Sleepy Poet find!
This is my FAVORITE of the day..... Adorable Pale Turquoise Chippy Farmhouse Cupboard... Available at the Sleepy Poet tomorrow, $175. Too adorable for words and the amount of storage any junker will love!! ~UPDATE CUPBOARD SOLD~
Perfect Yellow inside, no work needed here!!! Just a wipe with a rag and soap!
Lots of Rust on the trail For Sale today......... Old 1890's Mirror was a spectacular find... The age of this glass was to Beautiful!!
Old Little Farmhouse Cupboard..... all it needs is a little cleaning and she will be ready to go.... is that Turquoise Paint I see under the crackles??? I believe it is!! ~UPDATE METAL PIECE, SOLD~

I eyeballed this awesome Chippy Cream Barbers chest last weekend... and look what was waiting for me today!!! Still there and for cheaper!! It was meant to be, right?? The coolest thing it is Pink under the Chippy Cream!! !$165.00 To Be Available at The Sleepy Poet 080209~

Well.... after the pic we tried to get all of the new junk in the garage, not would not all go!!!! It was like I poked the red hot poker into him!!! Nothing like a whining man at to much Junk!! Hehehehehe, but I did promise that alot and I do mean ALOT of it will go straight to The Sleepy Poet first thing tomorrow!! I have so much more I want to say about the day but I am about to fall out asleep.... I will try to add to the post tomorrow, Hubby Scott cooked us up some bacon (turkey)and eggs sandwiches for dinner... now it is time for a nap!! Thanks for the visit, Hugs and Blessings, Janna

You were a busy little girl today! How cool to be known in the junking world. You know you are doing what you love when it loves you back!
As for that there anything better than breakfast for dinner? Didn't think so!

ALVN of WhisperWood Cottage and Junkologie said...

WOW, loads of good stuff! The piano is my favorite! Good luck moving it all to the Sleepy Poet:) Have a blessed day!

Holly Hills Primitives said...

Congratulations on your "visitor"! That did have to make you feel great - which is very deserving. You sure are getting some wonderful "junk"! Have a great day, Dawn

Anne~fiona and twig said...

Wonderful stuff! I would be on a junker high for days and days if I hauled a stash like that!
Good for you, getting Sue's stamp of approval~you have mine, too!


Rebecca said...

Hello and congratulations! Let us know when you will be in the magazine! Lots of cool stuff you found. Looks like a lot of work.

Peanut-Butter Kitty said...


WOW!! Nice finds, I keep on junking hoping to come across stuff like that. Thanks for posting.


Angie said...

LOVE the mirror!!!! Also was that a head board with the little cabinet? I didn't see anything in your post about it? It looked like it would make the coolest towel rack or magazine rack!!! Anyhow- not sure what I'm going to do with the cabinet I got from my friend. I'm thinking maybe in my bathroom with lots of pretty bottles of lotions and potions?? ;)

Cheri Peoples said...

Can you come over and see if you have any suggestions. I am having problems with my follower section and I need advice.
Thanks Cheri
Its So Very Cheri

Love, love, love it all, as always! I live vicariously through you. :)


The Green Pea said...

Janna, you are too funny. I had to read your post about all your treasures that would not fit into the Mr. Pea, he knows this story only to well. I just want him to know he is not whining alone..Hehehehehe!

How cool Sue was looking at your treasures. Sandi

Down Home DIY said...

Loved your booth! It rocked! What a great little find. Awesome. I am not too far (Winston Salem) so I plan to come back! Keep me posted on new stuff and sales. The Sleepy Poet told us you were bringing in some good stuff today...I wish I could've made it back! I got some great stuff there and can't wait to repurpose it!
All my best,



Primitiques 'n Poetry said...

My stars! You know how to pile in the good stuff, eh? I think that iron, fence piece is my very most favorite. Lots of great finds, Janna! Thanks for stopping by today. ~Mindy

What a great weekend you had. All it takes is one compliment (& purchase) & I'm on a roll. Have a great week. Jan

Jill said...

Sorry, when I emailed you I hadn't read this close enough. Congrats again. AND what wonderful junk you brought home.

Cottage Elements said...

Janna, so glad we stumbled upon your booth! When I saw your tags, I knew why I was drawn to it! Ditto on Olde Thyme Marketplace's booth! Wish we could have made it back on Sunday. My girlfriend lives in Greensboro, so we'll have to try to connect next time I'm in town. Thanks again for all the amazing stuff!


Ruby Grace's said...

Man, that was a great haul. I wish I was travelilng with you, but then we may have fought over some of this stuff.

Gretchen said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog Janna. Always a pleasure to see your comments.
You really made quite the haul on this day. So glad Sue loved your booth and the shop in general. I know what a thrill it is to have Sue's stamp of approval. Now two of my friends have your jewelry. Both, Sue and Andrea from Junk Fest in ND. I'm working on a custom necklace for Andrea, but won't be done until after the Junk Bonanza event this month. You'd love it in Minnesota. Lots of great junk, but looks like you've got wonderful stuff your way as well. Love this blogging and meeting new friends.
Have another junk filled day!

Junk Girl said...

I can't believe you found those cute shutters on the side of the road?! People are CRAZY! Your stuff is great...wish you didn't live so far away, as we'd be there in a heartbeat to dig through the junk piles with ya! Have a good day! Andrea

Just Me said...

OMG...Great Stuff!!! Junk Beauty Heaven!!!

Tamis said...

I love your junk! Darn if I do not live so far away--that little white cabinet would disappear before you even knew what happened!

Signs and Salvage said...

That turquoise cupboard is truly YUMMY!!! I think we might have the same taste:) If you ever want to trade signs...for whatever you have...maybe for Christmas presents...just let me know. I LOVE to trade!!!

Lea said...

How cool about your pendants!!
Girl, you just have the knack.... !!! TRUE STORY!

Today, we're venturing into unknown territory junque stores.
I'm so pumped!
You'd have loved one of the last places we stopped at. I thought of you the whole time we were there!

Jeanette said...

Woo Hoo!!! What finds! Lovin' lookin' at all your "treasures"! And I vote"YESSS" on breakfast...anytime! LOL

Come see me sometime!

the primitive country bug said...

More great finds and so fun to read. I almost pee'd my pants reading about yours in the salsa isle. Still ROTFL!
Great write up too. They know when someone has a good eye for junk and you, my friend have a good eye!
Still wishing I lived closer!
Hugs~ Birgit
