Are you ready for an amazing day of shopping at the market this Saturday? Do you have something specific you are looking for or just out to find that special “something”? Here are our thoughts on what you might want to bring with you!!

1. Family and friends you love to shop with!! The more the merrier and it makes the car ride more fun!!

2. Wear layers!! If you are an “early bird” it might be chilly waiting in the line up :)

3. Re Usable shopping bag or cart. These help you keep your hands free for more shopping!!

4. Measuring Tape to make sure your item is a perfect fit :)

5. A vehicle large enough for that “surprise” find. You do not want to have to make your friends walk home….but you will!!!

6. CASH!! Most of our vendors transactions are as vintage as the market!!

Whether you are “old hat” to markets or a “newbie” it is sure to be a fun filled shopping adventure. And to top it off,  for the non shoppers and for those who start to feel a little “peckish”, there is the “Roosters Corner” !! The Runway Cafe will be open, offering food and drinks to get you through the day!!

We are so excited and can not wait to see all of you!!!

Happy Junking

Over the weekend, I (Barb) was able to treat myself to Aroka Vintage’s Grand Opening and Market, and what a wonderful treat it was!! Dawna’s store is in the cutest vintage home with a beautiful garden area, perfect for the market. It was chilly, but the rain held off so everyone was able to take their time and enjoy.

 

 

Each vendor had beautiful items and displays, there really was something there for everyone!! And to top it all off there was lemonade, popcorn and cotton candy!!! Yummy!!

 

 

 

For those who may not know, Aroka Vintage is located at 2231 Clarke Street in Port Moody. If you have not been there yet, you really need to find some time to drop in!!

Vintage Chicks Market

June 10th, 2012 | Posted by Leah in Vintage Market - (1 Comments)

Two wonderful ladies, Leah’s mom Marilyn and sister Tanya, were sent on a mission by us! They hit the Vintage Chicks Market in Priddis AB, an hour away from Tanya’s home. Marilyn, who lives here in BC was visiting Tanya, and when Leah discovered this market we couldn’t help ourselves…we had to send them as our shoppers!! Leah spent Saturday morning texting back and forth with them as they shopped. We are so excited about all the treasures they found for us!! Here are some pictures they took along the way!!

 

 

 

 

We are so blessed to have family and friends ready and willing to help our junking  journey!!

Thanks Marilyn & Tanya!!

We love chalkboards…alot!! There are so many things that you can use to turn into one, and we have been busy doing just that.

For this old cabinet door we used Memphis Blue from CeCe Cauldwell on the frame. We are so happy with how it turned out!!

This one was a mirror, but don’t you think it looks better as a chalkboard?!! There are more that we have, but we are saving them for you to see at the market. It is getting closer and we are busy getting everything ready for you. Hope you have June 23rd marked on your calendar!!

Happy Junking

Fabulous Friday

May 4th, 2012 | Posted by Leah in Projects | Re Purpose Re Use - (0 Comments)

We think Fabulous Fridays might be on going…and it makes sure we post at least once a week!! Sorry that we are still getting used to all of this, the blogging “bug” will catch us soon:)

Between “junking” and painting projects, our houses are starting to overflow. Leah’s mother-in-law arrived from Manitoba last week, with a car load full of treasures for the market!! The prairies have so many treasures and one of a kind finds,  we are happy that she chose to drive instead of fly. Sorry that we did not take a picture before we unloaded, way to excited!!

Speaking of pictures, we do have some of one of the projects we worked on this week.

Leah’s daughter helping her out, never to early to teach how to re purpose things!!

 

 

What do you think? Another project completed and checked off the list!!

Happy Junking
