It seems like just yesterday that I loaded up the trailer to head to my first Funky Junk Sisters Show last June. Well, it's that time again - the loading has started, the glitter is flying, and the anticipation is building. I keep telling myself that this is hard work, but the minute I enter the Show, I know it's all worth it. To hear a bunch of Vintage Junk Crazy Ladies buzzing - it doesn't get any better.
We're heading south tonight to drop off the load, then it's up and out early Friday morning for set-up. I have my road crew with me; John, my sweet helper, cohort, and master set builder, Judy, my lovely neighbor who is always laden with ideas, set display extraordinaire, and Todd, he's on the beautification team. With lots of hands, we should be done in plenty of time to don our pink shirts and get the Show started.
Friday Night is a Breast Cancer benefit called, "Save the TA TA's". Grab a few of your best girlfriends and head out to Puyallup for a really fun evening. Many of the vendors, including me, will be handing out discount coupons for the evening. The Sisters will be selling tickets for the big drawing - a chance to win a gorgeous, already decorated Christmas Tree. There will be food a'plenty, and oh so much FUN!!!
Saturday is an early start for all of us, including you early birds. The doors open at 8:00am sharp for all of you who want to get the best pickins. We finish up on Saturday at 6:00pm.
For all of you who can't attend this amazing show, my websites are both open. They are full of some gorgeous things to kick start the Holiday Season. I'll be shipping on Monday, October 26.
