October Junk Junket

Funky Junk Sisters Show

and

Downtown Sumner







After months of planning the day finally came.

Saturday October 24th was here!

I was so excited to share with my old friends and new friends all the places and surprises I had in store for them.



Everyone got a beautiful rhinestone name tag. Not only does it make it easier for your new friends on the bus to know your name but it lets others know

YOU HAVE ARRIVED!






Everyone got a shopping bag filled with goodies

Charm bracelet's, necklaces, Mary Jane's Farm Magazines, and coupons.

Lots of coupons!

And......

A personal box of Frost Doughnuts.

A couple of my favorites

Salted Caramel

and

Pumpkin spice


Early early early!

Everyone ready to go



Let the prize drawings begin!

The whole day was filled with gift giving.



Michelle won the first gift.

A very cute crown that Shelly from Bungalow Bling had made.

It was perfect since Michelle was on the bus because it was her birthday!


Cathy won the gift certificate from A Dozen Eggs.

We told her how wonderful Laura is and what a beautiful job she does on those hand iced cookies but Cathy is going to have to experience it.

Once she does..........

She will be hooked just like me!




Susan won a fantastic cookbook written by

Dianne Berst.

Dianne is a local author who has some fabulous cookbooks out.

My favorite is

I Like Cookies
Dianne was very generous to this Junk Junket. We can't thank her enough for all the gifts she donated for giving away.

Michele was the proud winner of the

Tres Birds gift Certificate.

Perfect for those super cute family photos Michele is known for in her Christmas cards.

Do you have your family, pet, kids, or significant other photographed for Christmas yet?

You better call Amber right away!

Shopping carts lined up and ready to go.

Sheryl was the winner of one of the two shopping carts that were raffled off.




Lori the winner of the other.

I do believe these ladies found them quite handy!


Myself and Deb Kennedy

She and Bob have been a great help to me over the last couple months.

I can't thank them enough for all their hard work they put in to this show and gifts for the Junk Junket.

They ROCK!

Randi was the winner of the Salvage Studio gift.

Super cute!

Thank you Lisa and Beth

Tiffany at Shabby Scraps was a big gift giver on this Junk Junket.

I can't say enough nice thing about her and her beautiful gifts.




Linda from Luluz

My Sakuma Berry pickin buddy!
She donated the cutest necklaces for the gift bags.

Yeah! I know!

She made one for everyone on the bus!


Is this not the cutest picture?

Kay was the winner of the Amy Butler Birdie bag that was hand sewn and donated by Pat.

Pat was on my last bus to Barn House. She is also my newly adopted Mother-in-law!
She donated this bag AND......made the shopping cart liners that we raffled off.


This was a gift with purchase at the Whistle Stop Antiques.

They had made these beautiful glass bead Halloween bracelets

then put them in these super cute little jars with candy.

The ladies loved these!



Shanon was the winner of the

Vera Bradley Hope Garden Handbag

It was donated by

Belle Provence. One of my FAVORITE stores in Mill Creek Town Center.

I need to give a big shout out to Kris and Amy of Today's Country Store

They were so much help to me. When I came to them and said I wanted to bring a bus to their fantastic store in their cute little town of Sumner they said

"What do you want us to do?"

They got all the merchants to help, they made suggestions of what to do, where to go, and were my contacts were for whatever I needed in Sumner.

Today's Country Store. It's a junkers paradise!

A little afternoon glass of wine at Sorci's

The lunch Sorci's provided for us was so stinkin good we all had to go to the restaurant and try a few more things on the menu.

What a great little find this place was.

The Hubs assuring Charlene that it was totally OK that she bought this wash machine.

We had a way to get it home!


Another cute cart found


If it won't fit in the bus

We have the truck!

Come Junk With Us wants to make sure that if you want to buy something, we can get it back to your vehicle at the park and ride.

No matter how big.

How stinkin cool is this?

Sheryl Donahue who makes fantastic jewlery gave this super cute necklace for a give away. My Faux Aunt Reta won it.


Your host and hostess for the day


Isn't that beautiful?

This was my neckless that Sheryl made for me.

I was so touched.

It's lovely and you will see it hanging around my neck for every Junk Junket.

We might just have to see if we can't get Sheryl to make these so everyone can have one.

Mom, Me, and Faux Aunt Reta

(Reta isn't really my aunt but she's been part of our family for so long she might as well be)

The two ladies who taught me that life is all about the adventures, road trips, good food, trying to get the perfect picture and laughing until your sides hurt.





Brenda with some more of her great finds of the day





It was a good day!

We met new friends, we junked, we ate, we laughed, we junked, we ate, we laughed, and we junked some more.

  1. What a fantastic trip, Timi. You have arrived! Everyone looks so happy. And didn't I tell you how great Kris and Amy at Today's Country Store were! I really think you need to come to Centralia, and bring some folks from the "south" up there to your part of Washington. Congratulations!
