No junk at Joan's...treasures galore!!November 12th, 2008 in member junk
My friend, Terri, and I headed to Joan's open house early last Saturday...and were surprised to find that it was only about 20 minutes away from our workshop. We weren't disappointed - our friend, Joan, knows how to put on an open house!!!
I'm sure her neighbors were amazed (or maybe not - they're probably used to it!!) to see people carrying out piece after piece of furniture, etc...because she was selling stuff like crazy (great stuff AND great prices). When we walked in (1/2 hour before opening...) customers already had piles of stuff - so, we quickly went thru and grabbed some goodies - can't believe she does all this....(a woman after my own heart - for sure!!). We were there about an hour and I think she had sold out half of her stuff when we left.
She didn't have much time to visit - lots of business to be done...but we chatted about a possible spring "junk" event in her area - so, we'll let you know about that...
Joan has a quaint Victorian home, (and even with everything set up for sale) - you could see she's got great style (I knew she would...) - wonderful architectural pieces and antique furniture (and I peeked out at her new sunporch - buttoned up for the winter - so cute and cozy. And, of course her (custom-built) fireplace mantles are awesome!
Also found out that we share a birthday week - Saturday was hers, and mine was last Wednesday - so, hope your birthday was fabulous (and profitable too!!).
We had big fun!!! And then traveled to Wooster and hit the hospice thrift store and an antique mall - I guess it was all in a day's "work"!!! Now, we can finish getting ready for our next show...one Thanksgiving weekend, and we're planning our own open house at our workshop in December...are we crazy or what??
P.S. Candy, we missed you - but, I know sooner or later we'll get together.
