If you followed along on Instagram this past weekend, Karen and Cherish, who run The Old Town Flea Market together, took a quick trip to Scottsdale, AZ! Now I'd love to say they came to see me, well because, I'm great! :) But as it turns out they were here to check out the "Junk in the Trunk" vintage market. And maybe me... even if only a little.
Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market just celebrated its 5th anniversary and has grown from a small backyard event to a large 3 day vintage market with over 150 vendors and 25,000 attendees. Karen & Cherish were on a mission to get ideas and inspiration for our show in Old Town Clovis on November 5th & 6th. We all sharpened our pencils and a variety took notes from vendors, attendees and even one of the event partners. If you ever are in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area, we highly encourage you to attend this event held twice annually. You can also follow them on Instagram @junkinthetrunkvintagemarket.
We found so many great things this weekend and trust me... Karen wishes she could take them home with her, but I'm not sure you can check a table at the airport. A lot of the things we found were SUPER cool and very similar to what is sold at The Old Town Flea Market, such as; funky world globes with hand-lettered quotes, locally made leather purses, and anything you could imagine that is chippy, rusty and vintage!
Here are a couple of things that I was able to snag for me and my dorm room at GCU! Once I saw the "Vote 4 Junk '16" I LOVED it! How funny is that? And talk about being creative.
This weekend wasn't all about Junk in the Trunk though, we shopped, ate, and hot tubed a lot. I have to say the best part of the weekend was coming together with my family for dinner. My brother and I are about 90 miles apart in Arizona for college and having my mom and brother at the same table for dinner makes me miss my home. <3
We love hearing from you guys! If there is anything you want us to blog about specifically. Stick around later this week I'll let you know how we pick our brands.
Success! Feel free to
