If you were able to make it out to the Pamper Yourself Trunk Show at Otten Bros. Greenhouse in Long Lake, Minnesota, thank you! It was a fabulous turnout. Every year it gets better and better. And with such a great bunch of vendors, how could it not be busy!
I did manage to take a bunch of pictures before the sale, and a few during the sale, so I thought I'd share them with you.
Stay tuned. Future dates are going to be added for this year! Hope you enjoyed the pictures!
After recently seeing a coffee bar in one of my friends bedrooms, and then seeing a recent post by fellow JUNKMARKET Contributor Jasmin Marisett on the JMS site where she was showcasing a coffee bar, I decided it would be a great idea to add one to my bedroom. I had recently purchased this vintage medical shelf at a local occasional sale and if you've followed my blog, you'll know I am a huge fan of medical pieces. I think this one is perfect for my coffee bar, don't you? It's just what the doctor ordered!
I am also a big fan of white, and since I obviously need a coffee pot, this small white Keurig was just what I needed! It sits on top of a vintage yellow milk glass dental tray. Again, a favorite piece of mine with a medical theme.
I obviously needed something for water to make the coffee. I already had this metal thermos and it fits the bill.
The K Cups sit in some vintage ironstone.
So do the creamers.
And like most of my vintage items, the more imperfections, the more character.
Of course it's okay to add some new items to your displays. The coffee cups and ironstone tray are newly purchased.
This well loved ironstone pitcher holds some vintage silver plated spoons.
And vintage books sit on the chair next to the coffee bar, just in case I feel the need to read while enjoying my morning cup!
The vintage oil painting that hangs above the bar is another example of a well worn and well loved piece.
Of course I have to show off the vintage church door that I had installed when our home was built. It has it's original glass. I have to say it's pretty awesome!
Guess I'm now ready to get my day started with a little jolt of java!

Come spend Ground Hog’s Day with us at the 3rd Annual JUNKMARKET Style “Pamper Yourself” Trunk Show sponsored by JMS and Otten Bros. Garden Center and Landscaping. This show is back by serious popular demand…just for you! We started this “girls just wanna have fun” event three years ago on kind of a whim to put a little ray of sunshine in our Minnesota winter. What has happened is not to be believed! Women come out by the groves to take in the sunshine, the plants, awesome product, and the AMAZING group of vintage vendors gathered at Otten Bros.
Signs of spring will be most obvious in the tropical greenhouse so you won’t have to travel all the way to Punxsutwany to find out what Sir Ground Hog has to say. Rumor has it he’s staying above ground this year…or at least for just one day we can believe winter is over. We deserve that much, don’t we?! Most of the uber talented dealers that cater to all your womanly needs will be returning, not to mention some very cool, fresh, and all new surprise vendors will be on hand to make your day a whole lot better than your average February 2nd. Doesn’t get any better than that!
Let’s face facts together…the holidays are lovely, yet exhausting and the Minnesota winter weather has a way of zapping our energy. That’s why Otten Bros., JMS, and a few of our favorite friends continue this tradition that has now become as watched and followed as Ground Hog’s Day. OK, maybe that’s stretching things a bit…but not much! One thing is for sure, this trunk show remains to be focused on one of your favorite people…you!!! Come join us in the sunshine without shadows…you’ll be glad you did. To see more vendor profiles, click here. Here’s the skinny.
