Mother's Day Brunch:

 

Cupcake

 

Do cupcakes sweet as can be sound good? You know they do! On Sunday May 9th from 10:30 AM until noon a mouth watering brunch is being served up for all of you mom's, kids and husbands by the good folks at Cupcake. You have two choices so click on your favorite and get ready to treat your taste buds on Mother's Day. Tables are available in the restaurant and in the sale venue. Table tops will be done up JUNKMARKET Style and who knows...maybe your server will be Jim, Sue, or one of the JUNKMARKET Style contributors. Seating is limited, so make your reservations early! Cupcake will also be serving their world famous "baby cakes" at the opening gala. Click here to purchase tickets for this event. They will also be teaching a class on Saturday on the art of making the perfect cupcake...and they know how to do it! Click here to purchase tickets for the class.


Anthropologie Fashion Show:

Anthropologie


Calling all Mothers and Daughters! As a special feature to this event, Anthropologie will be hosting a "spring fling" fashion show. We love Anthropologie and feel that their clothing is synergistic with our sense of style. They provide stylish clothing with a personality that is often times, vintage inspired and always offers timeless quality. I think it's like this...we don't want our houses to look like everyone elses nor do we want to wear the same thing everyone has on as they're walking down the street. We're artsy, curious, unique, and fun loving. Am I right?! the fashion show starts at 1 PM sharp and is free with entrance admission. Please join us for all of the fun! If you would like to join us for brunch prior to the fashion show, please click here for information.

11:00 - Mid-Century Cookware

georgiamoon writes: Oh my, I am crying now. This sounds like the most fun thing anyone could possibly attend! I, unfortunately will be starting my new job the first week of May, and will not be able to be there. This is the ONLY thing that could keep me away!!! I know this will be the biggest thing to hit the junking world in a long time and it will be super successful and if it happens again I will be there with bells on. Sorry I am going to miss meeting all of you that can make it, but I know you will have the best time ever and we will get together again at another date. Sue, congratulations on your new and exciting venture. Hugs and kisses to all, Georgia Posted: 1:44 pm on March 18th

Could you pack it all up and come on down to Indiana? I promise I could have a crowd of people here for you if you did!!! Good luck with the event. Posted: 3:57 pm on March 16th

junkermidge writes: This sounds awesome. I'm hoping to make it. Who knew my daughters had already been scheming for some kind of road trip? It didn't take much arm twisting. They aren't much for junking but apparently there's some big mall or something in your area that they're more interested in (I know, more than junk? Really?)
