Due to the winter snow storm we will be postponing the winter white night out until Friday night the 20th, lots of fun food and good spirits! And hopefully NO SNOW!:))




Well it's final as of February 1st we will no longer be store owners. So come celebrate with us one last time at 1008 main street where we have enjoyed so many good times over the last 12 1/2 years.Don't worry though the new owners will be renting Kris and I space so we will still have somewhere local to sell our wares. We are truly excited about the new year and there will be alot of JUNK adventures so don't be sad, change is good we keep telling ourselves and we couldn't have made it so many years with out the support of YOU all of our fabulous Amazing customers!

Fall preview


Thursday night Sept22nd from 5to9 we will be introducing our new dealers and help get you inspired for fall! Stop by for some spirits and treats!

Come see us at Monticello's!




Barnhouse trailer Caravan


(image) Ready set GO! Here we are at my house Friday morning all ready and rarin to go for our big trip to the Barnhouse Sale in Battleground.
(image) This is my sweet friend Mindy with her adorable little Shasta making its maiden voyage. She's been working so hard getting her ready and it shows, new paint job and all!

(image) Look at this FABULOUS glider Mindy bought from Thea at the BH sale!

(image) Here's the Fancy farmgirl in her Pink palace named Audree! Glamping takes primping too! My camera died early on, but you can see more pics at Tiffanys site

(image) This isn't a very good shot, but it's the only picture I got of my little shanty before my camera died. I had a great time seeing so many old friends and meeting so many new ones. We had lots of fun just hanging out at the trailers, but the BH sale was pretty wonderful too! It was a hot one in more ways than just the weather!

(image) Here's my little bedroom

Don't forget this coming weekend is the Sumner arts festival in Downtown Sumner starts Friday!

WOW it's been busy around here!



Fluffing the Nest
I know I'm not the only person thats too busy this summer to keep up on my blog so here's a quick update and a few pics. Hope everyone is having a SUPER FUN SUMMER!

(image) Here's a few shots of my booth. This great old sign say's it all

And this "FUN" glitter sign says even more!

(image) WOW we've been having alot of FUN working and playing on the compound lately. Last weekend was our 4th Annual Field Fest, I've posted pics here on my trailer blog.


Well I don't have a sign that says "WORK", but we've been doing alot of that too lately. Thats our new carport behind my sons VW. The real Deal McCoy and his boy Ben built last week. We are in desperate need of more storage on the compound and this will be another spot to house a vintage trailer until we get our new metal barn built. After that i'm thinking it could be a sweet little covered patio area where I can hold some seasonal sales & get out of all this rain we keep having here in western Washington!

One short sunny day


(image) It was far from warm, but the sun came out the other day for a few short hours
(image) Just enough time to hang out the fabulous old linens I just unearthed at a hoarders sale

(image) My garden leaves alot to be desired, but we literally havent had a full day of sunshine since before October! When they say it rains alot in Seattle they aren't kidding! Every month we are setting new record for the most rainfall! I know it could be worse with all of the horrible tornadoes in the midwest and the record snow fall back east this winter. I just wish we could all get a few nice pleasant 75 degree days!

Hope you all are warm and safe

So I hope you come on over and become a follower and let me know if you want to see more of these little pieces of americana that have captured my heart. Just click on the trailer to the right.

I'm not a criminal, I am a tax paying law abiding red blooded american citizen!


Today was a horrible, humiliating, mortifying day for me!I am a hardworking mother, wife, business owner, junk dealer. I don't smoke crack, steal, or do anything that is not legal!So....deap breath... Let me back up a bit. I'ts been six hours and I'm still reeling from a very emotional thing that happened to me earlier today. This is how it goes.... I've been out junkin, found a neat old Procter and Gambles clock for a friend took it to her house had a bite to eat and a cup of coffee then off I go to finish my rounds. I'ts my only free day this week to get in some good junk hunting and I'm a little weather blown, wearing my ripped jeans and having to drive my husbands old mazda, because he needed my truck to go pick up a carport. So ..deep breath.. oh geeze i 've got to get ahold of myself!So I'm heading to Pacific Run Antique Mall out in Tacoma multy tasking as usual, my cell phone rings and it's one of my customers I'm just about to pull into the mall parking lot and a state patrol drives by me and see's I'm not wearing my seat belt quickly wips a U turn and blue lights follow me into my antique mall parking lot. Here I am right in front of the store thinking omg how embarrassing right? all these people I know are watching me get a ticket! Oh well it's my fault and I'm ready to suffer the consequences right? Mr 25 year old officer asks for my I D and registration, of course I'm in my husbands car so I'm not so familiar with where things are. I open the glove box and everything falls out onto the floor. I can't find the insurance card which I new he had , because I just paid my $425 monthly bill!. Well I find it after what seems an hour (maybe two minutes) he steps away fro my car for about two seconds and comes back and asks me to step out of the car. Step OUT OF THE CAR??? why??? O.K now I'm completely confused? I'm not wearing my seatbelt? I wasn't speeding, my cars not stolen ? wtf? This young very young nice looking police officer is looking at me really intensly? He asks me "what have you been drinking?" What? Nothing! Oh I just had a cup of coffee. He says" what are you doing here?" I'm shopping! wtf? He asks" where did you just come from" I don't know mars??? wtf? ok my friends house! Mr officer asks if I have any weapons on my body, OMG I am ready to have a panic attack wtf? NO NO weapons! Mr young officer takes me to the edge of the hiway and asks me to perform a sobriety test. Feet together head back count to 30 with my eyes closed. I was on a sloped parking lot and this wasn't as easy as I thought it would be, so I start my test he say's "put your head back further!" I'm about to fall over my feet are way too close together and my balance isn't so great with my eyes closed, but I manage to keep it together , because at this point I am really fearing I'm going to JAIL in downtown Tacoma! I complete the test and he tells me to look at him and asks" how did you know you counted to 30?" WHATTTTTTT???? Is this a trick question?? OMG! One onethousand two one thousand and so on. Still not good enough for this guy he asks " what kind of drugs are you on?" Huh? what? I'm not a crack addict? I take lipitor and prilosec! Well he says 'thats a drug", but I say "not a MIND altering drug!!!! WTF? Ok I am shaking now I'm going to the hooskow for sure! Can it get any worse? Well I didn't think so, I've passed my tests (I think) answered his STUPID questions, but no he's not done HUMILIATING me yet in front of a whole crowd of people. Now I have to follow his pen test back and forth back and forth. Done. Nope "why are your eyes so dialated? Huh? what the ???Now he tells me to go back and sit in my car. I look in the mirror, my eyes are NOT dialated[...]

Happy Campin in Hillsboro


The Funky Junk Sisters brought in a GREAT Crowd! Most of the morning you could'nt hardly get through my booth!Here's a pic of my little tiny booth (i'm not use to that) it was really a double, but my happy camper took up most of my spaceI decided to add the crochetted lace bedspreads on the awnings at the last minute, everyone loved it! This is a little more fufu than I usually do, but the ol gal was really taking to the fluff, so I just ran with it!Even a little lingerie hangin out to dry, oh well if my dirty laundry is going to get aired I might as well be the one airin' it!Stumbled onto this awesome restraunt with the hubs Friday night! I'm sure alot of you Oregonians know about McMennamins?Loved loved loved this lit up arbour leading through the woodsto the restraunt!Don't you just want this in your backyard?Wow did we ever have a FUN FUN time at the Junk Salvation Show in Oregon!My Hubby went with me this time and we had a blast. The show was Fabulous! and the people were even better than fabulous! I got to see so many friends from Oregon and I met so many super duper new friends! Loved the happy happy people who loved my "happy lil camper"!. Everything just went so smoothe which doesn't usually happen, usually there is some small glitch, but not this time! I think it was probably, because I had the master of all trades with me ( except decorating) thank god he knows better than to go there!:) Thank you to everyone who was just so super sweet and complimentary about my little camper. I don't know what it is about these little vintage trailers, but they really reach out and touch people in a way that I have never seen or felt before. They just make me and so many of you HAPPY!Thank you all for letting me share in a little bit of happiness with you:)xoAmy[...]

LOADED TO THE GILLS For Junk Salvation!


(image) Well today was suppose to be all about packing up for the show, but something even more exciting was going on on the compound. The compound is our property that has 4 seperate houses all occupied by my relatives, my brother, my dad and my son and then our house.
So you see there is ALWAYS something going on around here and today was no different. As alot of you know my mom passed shortly before Christmas, which has left me with my dad adjusting to life alone next door.
Well, you see this sweet Harley I'm on? This is the newest member of the compound. Dad, sweet ol' 81 year old Dad bought himself a "hobby" today. To keep himself busy he says. To keep ME busy worrying about him , but i've got to tell you that bike gave me a feeling I haven't had in about 35 years when I used to ride dirt bikes as a teenager.OMG am I going to have to get me a Harley to keep an eye on my dad? I loved it and I'm going to have to sell a ton of junk to get me one of these sweet bikes!!

(image) So 9:00p.m tonite in the dark we finally get the junk all loaded and strapped down.

(image) I sure hope the little tin can can handle the load for the Junk Salvation show! I tried reall y hard to pack "light" but you know I wouldn't be a true blue junk girl if I didn't fill every last inch of the truck and trailer!
