I'm going Junkin'!!

Well this little house in Kansas is where it all began, a good friend of mine was closing down her shop (YaYa's) and I bought a large amount of her inventory and drove it too Colorado in January of 2006. This was the beginning of Chic Junque. I went back in May to go Junkin' and the house had been sold and closed....very sad :(

So, I'm heading back there tomorrow for the famed Sparks flea market in north eastern Kansas. I'm thrilled...like going on a treasure hunt! I'm always so excited to see what treasures I'm going to find. It makes it even more special for me because this is the part of Kansas my Dad's family comes from. Both my Grandmother and Grandfather, born in 1902 and 1899, and my Dad were born just a stones throw from Sparks, Kansas. So, I'm even more excited about what is lingering around those parts!!

I'm also going with some very very good friends of mine, one of whom owns her own jewelry boutique, and my other friend set me up with my husband, so very very good friends!!

Needless to say, I will be try to post while I'm there with some fun flea market pics!

Eastern Kansas you say...I just live a state away...I'm gonna have to google Sparks, Kansas and see how long it'll take me to get there. LOL!

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend...Andrea
