Here it is... the Holly Jolly Junk Sale... Mission Accomplished

We survived the the sale, it was questionable for a while but we pulled it off successfully. The weather was perfect, it felt like the holidays were in the air, and everyone seemed to have a genuinely good time.

This says it all... Junk and Be Merry!!



Shovels are another one of my weaknesses, just can't pass them up.......

New uses for flower frogs.......

A staple... typewriter keys....

My famous chenille candy canes.. started making these about ten years ago and still going... they are real chenille so they are a favorite.....

This poor old doll buggy has seen its days but it looks great with a few greens and vintage glass ornaments, great centerpiece.....

The American Beauty, this is girls wagon, small diner dish syrup pitchers......

Bottle brush trees... another one of my weaknesses......


One of my long time junking friends... Annette... we met years ago and have that same love of old things, she found me these great cast iron fence toppers once, every time I look at them I think of her.....

Now, I love this package... great use of those old black and white bingo cards and some old wide satin ribbon.......

Old silver... fab in a group.....


Vintage Christmas cards........

A table done all in old things, white china, door knob place card holders, dresser mirror, old bottles and lamp parts,those great old pearly bracelets for napkin ring holders, and vintage wrapping paper.......

Some of our long distance visitors, myself, Sam, Barb and Bev... you may recognize Barb, she was our Day in the Country's long distance visitor..... she made the trip again and brought friends!!!

Snowman faces......

These old letters came from old Christmas signage from the Globe Clothiers in Hartington, Nebraska.....they used to say Merry Christmas....

Another one of my faithful followers... Meet Jacki...

Pulleys, license plate signs, and wood architecture ornaments......

Chalkboard buckets......

Old red barn doors and iron rests.... who would have thought you could do barns and ironing together!

Angie.... our famous candle lady......

Little boots filled with greens.....

Rings, rings, and more rings......

So there you have it in a nutshell.. Keep watching the blog... we will be doing more sales.... I found a great place to have our future sales.....wait till you see our next venue.... you are gonna love it!!!

Thank you to everyone who supports us, you are all appreciated and loved.... We want to wish everyone Happy Holidays, enjoy them with family and friends, make it special, create memories, and be joyful.... Merry Christmas to all....
