Holiday Magazine... Coming in October!

How many of you are "addicted" to magazines?
I admit I am a "magazineholic"!
I love magazines with decorating ideas, junk spots,
gardens, and Holiday Projects!
There is a Holiday "book-azine" due out in
October by author & editor Matthew Mead.
I met Matthew at the Junk Bonanza. He has authored
Halloween "book-azines", Flea Market Style Magazine
that came out this spring, and contributes to
Better Homes and Gardens and Country Living.
Do any of you remember our Junk Bonanza
Chocolate Cake story?
Well, Matthew and his wife along with Ki and
our friend Cammie we had invited to have a piece of
cake with us. That was until,it went missing!
A hotel worker dropped it... and didn't tell us!
(now that I think about it,
the hotel never did send us the check they promised!)

Anyway, Matthew is offering a contest for a
chance to be mentioned in the magazine for a
little help in promoting the new publication!
So, all bloggers unite...
head on over to Matthew's blog
and see how you can enter too!

Now open Saturdays!

We finally took the plunge and have
decided to be open every Saturday!
Ready or Not... I told customers we 
would be open on the 6th of March.

Well... it was more like "not ready"!
It was so hard for me to open the store
and not have it packed to the rafters 
as we usually do for our events. 
Our customers said they were just 
happy to have us open and are looking 
forward to seeing what treasures we 
will be adding each week!

A taste of Spring!
 As I look at this picture
I can see several things that
have a new home tonight!

I layered this drop leaf table with a quilt
 runner, handmade by my mom,
 checkered tin trays, simple white 
china plates, door knob placecard holders 
and a variety of vintage kitchen items.

It  was one of my favorites!
 I usally have so much product
to display that I can't use the furniture 
like you would use it in your home.
Now there's a positive for not 
having the store stocked full!

A Spring flower basket gives a boost of 
color for all of us who are so
color deprived by this time of year!
