First of all...... I have to say that I have the most amazing friends and family a girl could ever ask for whom have all worked tirelessly and provided loving support to help me pull this off. My brothers Rick and Howard, fabulous SIL, Gretchen, the famous Pfarkel Sisters, the lovely Lanette Lorsung (and Bekah who LOVES washing buckets) , amazing Amanda Ficek, and magnificent Miss Marge Utley. Thanks to all of these wonderful people....my vision has become a reality. I am forever grateful to all of them and sending lots of love their way!

What is GETFRESH Vintage? An all new JUNKMARKET experience complete with all the comforts of the original JUNKMARKET. This apple has not fallen far from the tree...it just has a refreshing twist. For years, JUNKMARKET Sty;e has been the innovative leader in this industry and after much thought we decided that JMS needed a companion....so the little sister is born. We here at JMS believe that what we do is not only about selling junk, vintage pieces, and lovely antiques.....it's all about style, ideas, creative freedom, and the way you live. We want to offer you product plus. You'll leave with a bag of full goodies in your hand along with the inspiration and confidence to go home and put it to use in your home in a beautiful way. Did I forget to mention that you will have a ton of fun at the same time? I promise smiles and giggles...life is way too short to go around avoiding obvious pleasures!

Inside the store you will find oodles of treasures for your home, your garden, your tastebuds, your waistline, your neckline, and your sniffer. Yeppers...we're here to satisfy all your senses and then some. A girl can not do all this alone...so you will enjoy one-of-a-kind creations and finds from Junk {redefined} by the Pfarkel Sisters, JMS editor, Lani,lots of lovelies from Annie of Grace and Corazon, belt buckles by Julz, treasured trinkets by Gretchen of Mimi Toria's, beautiful art and more from the talented Jolie Raimondo, magic from Marge Utley, pretty and practical from Amanda of Mama's Happy, cool beans from Julie Pierce, a sampling of Sue Wolfe, designs from Kirsten of Vintage Chic designs....and many more to come so stay tuned for additional names. What do you get when you cross JUNKMARKET Style with all of these uber talented people? GETFRESH Vintage!!! 

A little about Lanesboro. When I drove into this special town a little over a year ago it was love at first sight! I knew then as I know now this is the perfect place for such a venture. The scenery is to die for, the people are lovely, outdoor activities abound, if you are looking for fine food and wine....you'll find it, art is plentiful, and of course there is shopping too. We are delighted to be part of such a wonderful community! Read a little more.... 

 

 

 

Lanesboro, Minnesota….“a quirky
crossroads of the arts and outdoors!”
                                      -Minnesota Monthly

Tucked along the banks of the Root River in Southeastern Minnesota you’ll find a hidden gem, Historic Lanesboro, pop 754. Discover a slower pace of life with no chain stores, fast food franchises, or stop lights. This quaint town site offers invigorating outdoor adventures, breathtaking views, rich artistic and cultural experiences, unique shopping, locally grown foods, wine and fine dining.

Biking lovers rave about the spectacular paved Root River State Bike Trail that winds 60 miles through the valley with Lanesboro at its heart. It runs along an abandoned railroad bed through towering limestone bluffs, forestlands, rolling fields and pure inspiration.

In Lanesboro, the arts thrive. Take in a spirited comedy or stirring drama at the Commonweal Theatre or view work by talented regional artists and attend a lively gallery opening at the Lanesboro Arts Center.

 

Lanesboro is one of America’s Prettiest Towns by Yahoo! Travel/Forbes Traveler for scenic beauty and small town charm. Minnesota Monthly noted Lanesboro as one of 10 Small Town Weekend Trips in Hidden Minnesota! 

It is easy to see why people return time and again to renew themselves in Lanesboro’s riches.  

Come, create your own memories!

 

GET FRESH Vintage is about to open it's doors so I hope that you will all come to visit us. You'll fall in love with everything Lanesboro. We will be open for sure beginning August 3, 2012 through the end of December, 2012...and re-opening for a new season in March of 2013. Buffal Bill Days here in Lanesboro is a hoot and a half so come on down for our grand opening! Also, pencil in November 2, 3, and 4, 2012...we're cooking up something special for you! I'll keep you posted. For now you can stay tuned at www.junkmarketstyle and www.junkmarketstyle events. The web page for GETFRESH Vintage is currently under construction!

I hope to call this quaint little town home some day....but as you know I have a bit of life on the road going on right now :). So for now, I will just call it my home away from home. I'll be in and out, so if you catch me in town maybe we can take a tube ride down the Root River! Here's where you can find the store...GETFRESH Vintage, 116 North Parkway, Lanesboro, MN 55949.

We all look forward to seeing you...here's a sneak peek at what's going on!!!

I am looking forward to seeing EVERYONE at GETFRESH Vintage in the near future. Grab the girlfriends and guy friends and take a little road trip to Lanesboro. The scenery is gorgeous, the town is lovely and the shopping is fabulous. You will NOT be disappointed! GETFRESH Vintage is something you have to experience for yourself. I cannot describe the lusciousness of it. As little sisters go, this one is the best!

Sue, your talent always amazes me. Simple as that. Congratulations and my best wishes to you (and the rest of us!) for many years of success in GETFRESH Vintage in picturesque downtown Lanesboro, Minnesota!!!
