The ultimate junk show on earth...

In the middle of the city 
sits an old dairy farm.
It sat quiet until a friend 
had a brillant idea! 
Sara Alexander had a love of junk
and wanted to bring fellow junkers
together for an opportunity to 
sell their wares. 
Brainstorming she thought...
an old dairy farm, crowds of people,
music... sounds a lot like Woodstock! 
So why not 
... and the name was genius! 

From the very first show the 
crowds lined up!
And they've grown each and every show!

(our booth June 2012)

The "SToP" was fortunate to be part
of JUNKSTOCK from it's beginnings!

(our booth October 2012)

(our booth June 2013)

The show has grown to 165+ vendors!
You'll find raw junk, repurposed junk,
handmade vintage style goods, 13+ bands,
and lots of good food!
Not to mention you'll meet a lot 
of creative vendors from all over 
the country!

Creativity abounds at JUNKSTOCK!
You never know what Sara will
come up with for the next event!

(the love shack we help to create!)

Friends come from near & far to the 
greatest Junk show on earth! 

Mark your calendars, set your alarms
to wake up and smell the Junk
October 9,10,11! 

Grab your junkin' buddies and
hang a sign on your door that
says you've gone junkin'!

Double Duty...

It was time for a new business card...
and new price tags...
so here it is! 

I wanted something simple...
but, I have such a time choosing
because I like so many styles! 

For now I settled on this one.
It serves double duty... as it's a 
price tag & business card in one! 

 Until I come up with something 
I like better this will do!
We have lots of pricing to do
for our next show!
We are JUNKSTOCK bound 
in just 12 days!

We hope you'll come see us in the "coop"!

Readin' for Junkstock!

The "SToP" has been a
vendor @ Junkstock since
the very beginning! 

(photo Junkstock)

Junkstock is just a few blocks from 
The Whistle Stop on an old dairy farm 
in the middle of the city! 

Well, it's... 
3 days of peace, love & good junk!... 
with hours of awesome bands playing 
& lots of good festival food! 
170 vendors with everything
including the kitchen sink! 
(check out the vendor list on the JS website!) 

You'll find the "SToP" in the "coop"
just inside the main entrance! 

Today the Mr. did gave the coop
a mini make over! 
The burlap & fabric on the 
slant ceiling came down,

a quick spray of white paint 

and a couple of windows added 

make it lighter & brighter
for all the Rescued Furniture 
& good junk that will fill it
June 12, 13, & 14th! 

The thrill of the hunt, the love of the old
& the gathering of goods...
Don't miss it!
