Where ya headed this weekend?

Calling all Junkers!

Are you headed anywhere this weekend that involves thrifting, junking, antiques or all of them?  I might be in a minority but this is my favorite time of year…Fall is just on the other side of a few days.  Right now the cicadas are singing their best, the evenings have a cool breeze & leaves are beginning to change into muted jewels tones with a few swirling around already.

It’s September, which personally, I wish would last about three months & then ease into October, which should last another three to four months.  The humidity is giving us a break, thank goodness, so it’s the perfect time for me to find places to go & things to do. This weekend is no exception, there are some great places to check out.  Living in central Iowa it’s not hard to find a flea market, antique store or thrifty shoppe to poke around.  If we weren’t already headed NE we’d be traveling somewhere.  If you need a little guide remember to check Iowa Antique Network for happenings in your area!
Junk Hunk Hubby & I are headed the The Barn in Wellman early on Saturday.  They have a Vintage Flea & Fair which happens three times a year; this will be my first pilgrimage & I’m super excited {tummy fluttering already}!  Stay tuned…for sure I’ll be back with loads of pictures & the full scoop.

I have it on good authority that Brick & Mortar in Pella is having a pop up one day sale on Saturday to celebrate someone’s birthday {Happy Birthday, Lisa!}…  The shoppe & warehouse are BOTH going to be open 10am-2pm with 10% off everything @ the warehouse & @ the shoppe = 10% off furniture & 25% off any one home decor item!  Once you’re done corralling all the good stuff there, you can head out to the next junk haunt.  A few that caught my attention were:  Fall In Love With Junk in Oskaloosa, Country Blessings 1oth Annual Fall Extravaganza in Jefferson & the Re:home Occasional Market in Winterset. These are just to name a few!

The important thing is to have fun, enjoy the journey, smell the fresh air, have something yummy to eat & do what makes you happy  🙂

Happy Weekend Junk Sweethearts!
