Market Day Is Finally Here!

Hello Friends! Well after 9 months of planning, dreaming, scheming, yard sailing, auctioning, flea marting, dumpster diving, bartering, buying, picking, painting, sanding, and loving...the day finally came! My very first market day and proof to my husband and son that they do not need to call
It has been raining in NW Montana for three weeks straight, but we managed to stay dry on market day. The wind was troublesome and some vendors lost some of their special treasures, those pop up tents can be a blessing or a menace depending on the weather I have learned! Despite the chilly June temps, there was a line of loyal junkers and the crowd was pretty steady most of the day.

My children's chalkboard desk was a big hit among tiny artists throughout the day!

Some of my smalls!

Pretty Desk and quilt chair done in CeCe Caldwell
 Montana Blue Chalk Paint! I got all of my Chalk Paint from Orphaned Decor and they were sweet and helpful!

More fun smalls

Pretty Aqua pine cabinet...I LOVED this cabinet and was happy to see it go to a cute little mama and her little girl! In true junker style she fit this in her little car down to the last inch!

Red Hen and I had the very best time and are very excited for our next one on July 14th! Thanks to all my family and friends who have loved and supported me through all my crazy dreams and adventures...I'm a lucky blessed girl and boy do I know it! Love you guys! Happy Junkin!

I want to give an extra special shout out to my Mama who made Red Hen and I the cutest aprons for market! Your the best! xoxo
