There is something so fun about junking in the dark! There is a chill in the air, and a buzz as vendors are setting up, but there is a downside; things can look better in the dark!
Our April picking trip to Norther Kentucky was a great success! This flea in Burlington opens at 6am so we try to get there by 5am with flashlight in hand. There are often a few purchases made before sunrise that aren't quite as perfect as we thought once the sun rises. Lessons learned.
There are favorite vendors that I hunt down right away, and then do a once around at a quick pace looking for larger items. Once those pieces are found and purchased the pace slows and it's time to start taking in the details and looking for small items. Oh and hunting down food!
While it's still dark here, it's great when a vendor gets place under the lights. Look at all the industrial and rustic goodness!
(some of that came home with us)
Put up some great vignettes and you've got me! Pretty displays take time and these vendors have been working hard to make their treasures look perfect.
The picking and junking season is just getting started, so get out there and have some fun!
Who Am I?
I've tried it all..hair stylist/faux painter/stay at home mom/jewelry artist/late in life college student. Through all of those former "careers" I have had one constant passion.. a love of junk, flea markets and creating! It took me 30 years to find the courage do this full time and I have finally settled on what I'm going to be when I grow up!
