Art & Architecture, JUNKMARKET Style

What do you get when you combine two well-loved brands in the junk business, a dollop of amazing assemblage artists, a heaping teaspoon of gorgeous worn and torn garden d├ęcor, a carefully measured scoop of vintage vendors, a sprinkle of hand-crafted jewelry, and a good measure of one-of-a-kind furnishings for your home and garden?

I am so thrilled to be able to announce, and be a part of, a joint venture that brings together two great names, Art + Architecture and JUNKMARKET Style, in a retail event like nothing you have ever experienced.  The sale, being put on by our very own Sue Whitney of JMS, and Jim Schmitt of A+A, is scheduled for May 6th through May 9th, 2010. It will be kicked of with a charitable gala that will be held on the evening of May 5th.

The goal of the event?  To provide you with unique vintage furnishings, stylish art and re-designed accessories for your home and garden all under one roof. In addition, classes will be offered for those of you who want to be in the know.

The event, held in the historic Art + Architecture building, is located at 3338 University Avenue SE, Minneapolis, Minnesota.  Art + Architecture houses a full floor of architectural salvage, including an outdoor garden annex, a 6,000 square foot live to work loft filled to the brim, and classrooms with character all awaiting your arrival.  You will definitely find something for everyone here. And this is definitely an event you will not want to miss!

French Flea March Sale - Olde Time Market Place

I can't believe it's been almost a month since my last post.  My apologies, but the winter has gotten the best of me.  I have been literally under the weather and been fighting the crud for almost two weeks.  I need spring!  At least the last few days we've had rain, and the snow is slowly dissipating.

But it's that time already for a Flea sale.  The months go by way too fast!  And the shop is really looking great!  Julie and Teri have been working hard to get things looking amazing!  And they really are.  We have so many wonderful finds this month.  I've been having a hard time controlling myself.  I'd better watch it, or I'll be spending more than I make.  My bad!  And we've got some live plants to make it feel like spring!  I'm just loving it all.  So here are a few pictures to give you a peek at what we have.  Hurry in, things may not last long.......

Love the numbers . . . 

And boy could I use this for all my junk!

Does this have my name on it?  Ha!

This industrial farmhouse table is way cool!

I must have been too excited about this drink carrier...I couldn't take a clear picture!  Hick!


Is there a chicken collector in the house!

Julie's bottles are sooooo cool!

And you know I looove cloches!

The green grass reminds me of spring.  Ahhhh . . . . 

More vintage bottles!

We have pots . . .

More greens . . . spring come soon . . . please???

Hope this leaves you wanting more . . .just keep thinking, "It's almost Spring, it's almost Spring, it's almost Spring".
