The Expert is Back Again:
JUNKMARKET…Create Your Own Style, One Piece of Junk at a Time
Sue Whitney of JUNKMARKET, JUNKMARKET Style, and most recently GETFRESH Vintage is the nation’s industry leader in “junk” and “vintage” style. She has authored 3 books, 2 magazines, is currently a contributor for Better Homes and Gardens Country Gardens, and is the most highly respected national speaker in her genre. What is her style? It is the combination of roadside acquisitions, flea market finds, vintage for 400 please, and antiquities all wrapped up in one very stylish, affordable, green, and user friendly lifestyle package. The world is ever changing…JUNKMARKET stays abreast of those changes and offers fresh, innovative, and approachable concepts for you and your home. From the beginning (over twelve years ago) the original JUNKMASTER had a vision: to pursue her passion and share it with others. That’s something she will never transform. Among other things, Sue will be presenting on the main stage. Let her show you how to entertain, JUNKMARKET Style! The entire dining experience will be created of finds from Vintage Marketplace. Sue believes that spontaneity is a key ingredient to great design. You may just want to follow her around while she shops and learn how it’s done first hand!
The Vintage Marketplace is chock full of fine vendors oozing with style and offering up the finest vintage wares anywhere. Several of these experts will share their wisdom and experience on the main stage…Carter Seibels and Aveesh Singh of Woman Shops World and Debra of Annie Sloan Paints will offer up presentations that are interesting and informative. Make sure to attend both!! All presentations are scheduled for Saturday, September 15, 2012.

11AM to Noon: Debra of Annie Sloan Paints
In the mood for some education…and a whole lot of fun?! Join Debra and the folks from Annie Sloan Paints at the main stage and watch and learn how to transform vintage pieces of furniture from beast to beauty.
1 PM to 2 PM: Carter Seibels and Aveesh Singh of Woman Shops World
Carter Seibels and husband Aveesh Singh have been in the bead business for a combined total of 30 years. Though their love of beads has never faded, the exhaustion and over-saturation of the market encouraged them to travel other paths. When Aveesh, who is from India, took Carter on her first buying trip to India 2 years ago, their whole world changed! Carter started filling her suitcases with colorful finds, both vintage and new. She found all of these fabulous items that she needed to bring home and share with the US market (sari borders, harem pants, beaded slippers, to name a few). Slowly the pair started growing their offerings, to include antique and vintage African textiles, more handicrafts from India and Nepal, Thai clothing, shoes, and accessories, and more. And of course there is always a huge selection of vintage and antique African beads!
This pair will share their travel experiences and a whole lot more with you. Please join this delightful couple and learn a little about layering your life with pieces from faraway lands.
3 PM to 4 PM: A Dining Experience JUNKMARKET Style with Sue Whitney
Sue Whitney of JUNKMARKET Style has agreed to take the challenge. She’ll create a one-of-a kind fall dining experience out of finds harvested from all the fine dealers of Vintage Marketplace and Springfield Extravaganza. Can’t really tell you much more than that because she’ll be working with what she uncovers. There is one thing we can tell you for sure…it WILL be stunning! Please be our guests at the main stage for an interactive demonstration on how to put together an entire look out of one shopping experience. Look for Sue on Friday and Saturday as she hunts and gathers and make sure to say hi if you spot her!! Be careful though….she may want you to carry something heavy back to her tent! She’s just that way…
4 PM to 8 PM: Music and a Par-tay!
Whoa doggies…now here’s something to shout about. We have a band….and it’s a big one!! The fabulous BBI will be in the house just for you. This is a free performance with your paid admission. Beer and food will be available for purchase during the concert.
A little about BBI:
BBI has transcended the test of time and become an entertainment phenomenon!
Energizing audiences around the globe with their universal crowd appeal. BBI is unparalleled by any other regional band.
BBI possesses an ebullient live spirit that cuts across ages, races, backgrounds. It’s not just the accolades of great songs, and unforgettable stage show, and being well dressed that have elevated BBI to superior status. BBI connects with their audience in the most fundamental way: inspiring audiences to have fun!
To go along with the ab fab music…we have some celebrating to do! It’s somebody’s birthday. Our very own Sue Whitney will be celebrating her 29th birthday one more time! Anyone who wishes to celebrate their own 29th birthday right along with Sue, you’re invited to do so. The more the merrier! I think I remember seeing something on Facebook about birthday beardos? We’ll have to see how the evening unfolds!
