Who doesn't love a country drive? ...



... not I! 
It's one of my favorite things to do!
And what's better is a Holiday Market 
at the end of the road!


Christmas in the Country
hosted by the Whistle Stop



Just six short miles down a country road you'll find
a quaint setting with a small chapel, 
a town hall & a white picket fence.

Inside you'll find all the magic of the season! 



We have gathered together 8 of our friends with 
a great variety of vintage, antique, repurposed, 
handcrafted and Holiday inspired goods for 
Christmas in the Country!

(see address & directions on the card above)


Come out to the country & enjoy the start to the 
Holiday season!

We'll have the cider brewing!

Our Coop @ Junkstock!



... and here was my #1 helper! 


He was loving the rocking chair! 



Love this pine round table!
 And a chippy white cabinet to go with it! 



Added a little junk as a window box! 


Primitive shelf, bittersweet & farm animals... 
what's not to love?



The goose whirligig... another favorite 
and he flew to a new home in Colorado! 







My boys... built the new stage for the bands! 
It was magical all lit up! 



Love, love, love... 
the chicken carrier & this cow painting. 
Really had a hard time parting with them! 

The coop was about empty by the end of Junkstock...
See you in June little coop with lots of great 
farmhouse goods to fill you up!

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 
JUNKSTOCK!
... 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! 


 


(our booth October 2013)



(our booth June 2014)




(our booth October 2014)





(our booth June 2015) 




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'!

a change...



... in the weather makes it feel as if 
Fall is on the horizon! 

I'm lovin' the weather!... but, I'm not 
ready to give up summer! 

I am ready to make some 
changes in the shop!
{all 360 sq. feet of it!}

When our Fall market arrives the shop
will have a little bit of a new look! 


Better get to working and take advantage 
of this BEAUTIFUL day! 


Coming soon!
