A fabulous show with a collection of vendors who bring vintage/antique treasures - with great style!  And, did I mention its in OHIO???  Love that!
A very used tool bag thought its life was over, but no...I rescued it from a garage sale, and decided...hmmm...a planter!!  I mounted it on an old board and added some rusty accessories - and VOILA - bagged plants!
A closer look...rusty screws and junk!
An old childs chair (without a seat), was screaming to be a planter.  So some chicken wire across the bottom and added junk decor - too cute!
It needed just a splash of color...and no bit of broken china is wasted - some blue mulch made it pop!!
Some tin cans repurposed - using some scraps of feed sack, quilt pieces, and more junk - sweet little planters to sit here and there.  And, in the background, Susan used an old drawer to grow her plants in!!
A few of my new dog license necklaces with little jeweled puppies, keys, and whatever... 
I love doing spoon necklaces, oh, and I HEART LUCY too!!
Rocky the Rooster (my new model), shows off a VINTAGE GIRL!
Susan sweetly salvages old wood pieces and rusty hardware and more...to create her picture frames.  Of course, the photos are removeable, so you can put your favorite friend, family member or pet behind glass and display them in true vintage junker style!
Terri has created some unique cuff bracelets from leather, antique escutcheons and lots of bling - each one is one of a kind!
Heres a picture of part of Urban Farmhouses space at a past show.  I just love her relaxed vintage style!

Hi!  I've returned from the "archives" of JUNKMARKET Style to inform, entertain and share some great junk.  I know you've all been busy as bees creating, "re"creating, repurposing and recycling AND - of course -  JUNKING (it's in our blood, right??!

My two friends (Susan and Terri) and I are Nostalgia's Cottage, and we're doing just a "few" shows this year, and I wanted to share this one - just in case you're in or near Ohio (or, maybe want to take a road trip!!)...The Rural Society Antique & Garden Show is not to be missed.  It's held May 3rd and 4th at Warwick Farm near Mt. Vernon, Ohio.  

We have shopped the show for a couple years, and decided to join the vendors and sell our finds and redesigns! Here's their facebook page - stop by and "like" and check out the pictures they're posting daily!! https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Rural-Society-Antique-Garden-Show/138527542884765?fref=ts

Just a couple of the Ohio vendors who will be at the show...

Urban Farmhouse - Lisa, of Urban Farmhouse, finds the most unique things, and her style works with any decor!

Stash Style - Shannon of Stash Style, is just as cute as can be, and her clothing line has traveled cross country...and she still shares it with us in her home state...Ohio.  In addition to her clothing line, she is another junker who is relentless in her search for unique, fun and funky junk!

There will also be other things going on around the farm as well.  Broadway & Thresher will be hosting workshops throughout the two-day show.  Here is their website for the schedule: http://broadwayandthresher.com/journal/2013/4/19/the-rural-society-journal It's going to be a junk-filled dream come true in the rolling hills of Knox County, Ohio!  

Great to be back, Kathy

P.S.  (because that's what I'm "famous" for...)  

Coming soon:  our next show, which just happens to be one of the TOP ten flea markets in the USA...Springfield Antique Show & Flea Market - Extravaganza weekend - May 17, 18, 19...at the Clark County Fairgrounds in Springfield, Ohio.  Customers and vendors trek "cross country" to come to this show...over 2,000 vendors, and with the addition of The Vintage Marketplace (with around 50 vendors set up with fabulous style) AND, our very own Sue Whitney hostessing the Marketplace - it will be nothing short of AMAZING!  And you know with Sue there, well...that just adds to the fun factor.  

The schedule of events and vendor list will be coming soon - so stay tuned, and I'll give you the low down on THE place to be.  

Stop by the facebook pages and "like" and keep up with the buzz!!
