Junk Jubilee

 I just got home from my Girlfriend trip to Junk Jubilee in Iowa.  It was so much fun.  It was their Christmas market so everything was Christmas themed with vintage and chippy junk.  It was fabulous.  Here are some pictures of the trip.  Sorry but I forgot my camera so they were all taken with my cell phone.  We also stopped at some cute shops along the way and of course I was so excited about the shopping that I forgot to take pictures of the shops.  Next time I promise to remember my camera and take more pictures.  I am such an amateur!




Lots of old sleds


Lots of Cabin themed Christmas items

Loved this vendors booth she had lots of vintage "glampers" Christmas items.  Gotta love vintage campers and Christmas. Her stuff was too adorable.  Look at her Little LuLu that she travels around in.

This vendor took old vintage toy cars and made them into necklaces.  I loved the little VW bug necklaces.

This vendor's booth was awesome.  She had so many white and chippy items.  Don't you love that metal repurposed chandy with the crystals added.  Too cute.

Lots and lots of Christmas trees.  Loved this little one under the glass dome.

This vendor had some awesome architectural salvage pieces.

This vendor did cute aprons and also some gorgeous necklaces.  If you are a jewelry person this show was for you.  So many great vendors with unique jewelry pieces made from vintage charms and salvage.

Look at the Iowa Farm Girl sign and the 4 H Ribbon.  Too awesome.
This little awesome cutie came home with me for the hubby's new home office.

What I loved about this vintage fire chief car is that the number on it (508) was my husbands call number in the fire department for many years.  I think this was meant to be for a sweet gift to bring home to him.


This vendor has some great chippy pieces and loved this garland out of old torn pieces of fabric.   This pink truck was so fabulous and cute.


This vendor made this cute lampshade for this lamp out of stencil letters.  Loved this.  Too sweet.




Gotta love that chippy white Noel sign.

This vendor has adorable stuff but she caught my heart with the silver tinsel tree like my grandma had when I grew up.  I remember that tree each year at my grandmothers.  Hanging on the tree were vintage Christmas items but the christmas stocking were just like the ones we had growing up.  It was sweet to look at this booth and have great memories flood back to me.

This booth was my absolute favorite.  Got lots of things from this vendor.  See those hard to see ruffle angel wings in the back left corner.  Yep those came home with me.  I will show those beauties when I show my Christmas decor.  Look at the sweet chippy chairs and that fabulous light blue distressed cabinet in the back right corner.  Too many lovelies in this booth.  


This was a few pictures of the show that I remembered to take! I get so wrapped up in looking at things I forget to take pictures.  I got some pretty vintage Christmas things that I will show when I do my Christmas decor post.  Have a fantastic Sunday.

Kris

  13. I would have gone into debt in this place. Love the VW necklace .....since I have a VW. I have something similar that I got at Michaels last year. They had one as a charm along with a couple other items on one card.
    That fire truck is the greatest find. I love these, new and old.
    The angel wings.......hope you brought those home.
    Thanks for sharing.

  27. Oh Kris, you lucky, lucky, lady! I really envy you your trip and have turned a very ugly shade of green! lol. LOVED the metal light fitting with the crystals hanging from it, and as soon as I saw the fire fighter's car with a 'sold' sign on it, I just knew that it was you that had purchased it, and what a coincidence that it had your husband's number on it too - it really was meant to be.

    Can't wait to see what you come up with for Christmas.

    Hugs
