Something new is in the works

It is with much excitement, giddiness and fanfare that I announce I've joined in on the Junque Rethunque adventure. This was a business that my sister and mom started a few years ago. As you might imagine, it went a bit by the wayside when my mom was diagnosed with cancer but it's been revived. My sister has been dreaming of owning her own shop for quite some time and has also been talking of starting out small with a flea market booth.

I texted her to check with some local shops yesterday and by noon today we had a space at a fairly new but very awesome flea market. We're quick like that.

We've been dreaming big ever since we signed up for the booth. However, unlike so many others, when we dream big, we go big. Our booth will consist of vignettes of vintage and vintage inspired items. It won't be full of junk mocking you will it's clutter, but instead will invite you to take a moment (or two) to browse. Perhaps you'll find something to add to your collection at home or maybe you'll find something that will inspire a new collection. Oh, look over there, it's some vintage lingerie lace perfect for your next project and go ahead and pick up that package of wooden spools just dying to be used for something. It's okay, we won't tell anyone ;)

So, come January, it's on at the Fayetteville Trading Post. Just look for the "Junque Rethunque" booth - you won't be sorry you did.

I have forever wanted to rent a booth space somewhere, perhaps you've inspired me to look into it someday...

Can't wait to see what's in yours! Yay! And I'm glad that you and your sis are reviving a dream you shared with your mom, that's so sweet. ♥
