~Last Weekends Junk, Jewels & the New Booth!~

What a Week!!! And I am back with alot of pics this go round....My day job has really sucked all the extra life out of me this week. DRAMA...my definition of my job.... So once I caught my breath me and Hubby went and worked on the second booth at the Sleepy Poet last Sunday and of course ... I Junked all day on Saturday! That is becoming my new way to clear the mind and body from the weekly stress at work. The booth is coming along slowly, I forgot how long it actually takes to fill it up and get it just the way you want it. Once this is done this weekend I will begin to gather up all my extra goodies to expand my shelf unit to a full size booth at The Waxhaw Antique Mart on Nov 1st. Just keep me in your prayers, I need the strength and faith to conquer! So on with the pics! 1st pic.... Just a tease of the new booth at The Poet....


One of last Saturdays finds.... Old Chestnut Cupboard... it was covered in enough dirt that it's beauty was hid. I think it is a true beauty from the past! It has already made it's way to one of my booths as you will see in the pics!

ALL of last Saturdays JUNK Goodies!! The Old Tobacco Basket was a country flea market find...and it was also the hardest thing to part with...it too made it to the booth!

I was shopping in a little Antique Mall last Saturday and purchased and old Farmhouse table with Cubby shelf attached to it, I know... no picture... car to packed to fit her in...and I forgot to snap one in the store....another trip next Saturday on my Birthday to pick her up! Pics coming as soon as I get it home!! Anyway the shop owner asked if I had been to that particular dealers house... heck no I replied ... do I need to?? She said Honey... she has about 6-7 sheds packed full of chippy stuff like this....Well my heart started beating fast, she said that she would call but not to get my hopes up that she usually Junks on Saturdays... but oh yeah she was there. And when I arrived it was exactly what she said...JUNK HEAVEN!!! The little Yellow Chippy Mirrored Cabinet above (click on pic to supersize the beauty) was one of my purchases from her... it was the 1st piece I ran to in the building... she was quick to tell me...It was NOT for sale, it was display only.....well I begged for it the entire time I shopped and finally I left with it....Definitely a new Junk spot to shop on a regular basis!! Isn't it adorable?? It's definitely is not as little as the pic makes it look, more on the line of a small cupboard.

Hubby has also been busy hammering away on some New Junk Pendants. JUNK GIRL, on a Rustic link chain and adorned with it's own little Junk charm. $24.95. email me for availabilty. sjbaker@carolina.rr.com ,shipping is $3.50 to almost anywhere in the US or Canada .


JUNKER BLISS & JUNK JUNKIE..... $24.95, Paypal always accepted!!

Finally my favorite... this describes me to a tee this week Walking Trainwreck!! Also $24.95 plus $3.50 to ship, on a Rustic Link chain.

I was able to add a few new goodies to the old booth at the Poet, here is a peek at the updates!

The Chestnut Cupboard found it's new home, Available at The Sleepy Poet, $105.

This little cheesebox drawer set I found a few weeks back. I have never seen a piece like it, definitely looks to have been handmade...the little knobs are to die for...it SOLD today while I was at the Market!

Some more of my booths new goodies......

And here is the NEW booth...it is going to take a little time but it is coming along. It is definitely a challange with it being on the corner isle! This booth has taken on more of a Rustic Farmhouse style. I have mingled in some darker pieces. The 7.5ft Farmtable is one of my favorite pieces. I think me and Scott had nightmares of moving this 250lb sucker to the Poet.... it is there and will stay until SOLD!!!

Old Chippy Pale Yellow Dog bed... I found this piece a year or so ago and it finally has a spot....Perfect table centerpice, tons of possibilites!

Well this is all the pics I have for now.... I will add more as I fill it up! It still has a long way to go. If anyone has any ideas for my new space send them over!!! I would love to hear from you!

Thanks for stopping by. Me and hubby Scott are heading up to the NC mountains bright and early in the morning for the Valle Crucis Fall Country Fair... we go every year. Country Bluegrass music, Homemade Apple Butter, Grilled Corn, BBQ, Brunswick Stew...it's all there... and this is the first time that they are actually calling for SNOW .... I can't wait. Snow in October at the Fall Festival..it will be a beautiful sight if it comes as they are predicting... so be sure to check back later in the weekend for pics!! Have a great & safe weekend! Hugs and Blessings, Janna

HEY JANNA, GREAT PICS & THE BOOTH LOOKS FAB :) THE CHEESEBOX THING WAS PROBABLY MADE OUT OF NECESSITY, THEY USUALLY NEEDED SOMETHING TO KEEP THEIR NAILS, WASHERS, SCREWS, BOLTS IN, SO THEY GRABBED ANYTHING NEAR & STARTED COBBLING SOMETHING TO HOLD THEM IN. I'VE HAD MANY OVER THE YEARS & THEY WERE ALL DIFFERENT. SOME ELABORATE, SOME JUST PLAIN & SIMPLE, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK :) GIO

Jenny said...

Hmmm.... I guess shipping the farm table is out of the question. Darn. The boothlooks wonderful!

I am in awe of the energy you have! But I do know that zippy feeling when you find great junk that makes your heart go pitter pat. So I figure you run so long and hard on good junk junkies energy. Love that phrase from your recent necklaces!

You always find the best things!! I'm not sure I would have been able to part with that tobacco basket. I have the perfect wall for it!! Wish I lived closer, I'd visit the sleepy poet every week.
