You MUST GO to this show!!!

REBEL JUNK VINTAGE MARKET is coming to Hillsboro, February 2 & 3.  Mark your calendar to save the date because you do not want to miss this one!!


Yes, I will be there with a ‘double-wide’ booth, jam packed with all my VERY BEST treasures.  I’ve been saving my favorite items all year to bring to this show.

You know my motto, “Good stuff.  GREAT prices.”

In keeping with that spirit of getting good stuff at great prices:

Mention that you read about the show on my Facebook page OR my blog and receive 20% off your entire purchase in my booth.

P.S. Bring CA$H.   While many of the show vendors do have smart phones and apps/ devices that allow them to take credit or debit cards as payment; I DO NOT.  I still just have a regular old ‘dumb’ cell phone and am only able to take cash or checks.  Sorry.
(I learned the hard way last year that a lot of people don’t even CARRY checks anymore!)

There IS an ATM in the front lobby of the building if you forget; BUT, be prepared to wait in a long line if you need to use it.  I heard there was a line at the ATM all day at last years show!  You have been forewarned.

Children are, of course, welcome at the show and admission is free for kids under 12.  BUT, I feel the need to mention that there is a very ‘packed crowd’ at this show; and little ones are not going to be able to see much of anything except for the ‘back end’ of all the adults who are in front of them.  I felt really bad for all the kids I saw at last years show, just staring at a ‘sea of butts’ in front of them.  PLUS, many of the booths do not have wide enough aisles to accommodate a stroller.  So, for their sake and your own, leave the kiddos at home with dad or a sitter and you will BOTH enjoy the day more.


The BIG GRAPHIC numbers trend

You know what I’m talking about.  For a while you couldn’t hardly visit a blog without seeing a furniture project, be it a table, chair, bench or chest; that didn’t have some of the BIG graphic style numbers painted on it!  Of course, NOW that I want to look at some for examples I can’t find them!?!?  Even looked on PINterest.  Which  is where I found these few examples:

Usually the pieces are more rustic / industrial; like this:

And sometimes you’d see the numbers SPELLED out; ONE, TWO, THREE etc.

Every time I saw those things, I told myself I should make some.  Just never had the perfect piece (PIECES!) until now.

Picked up these three little grubby stools a while ago at a thrift store and have been waiting for ‘inspiration’ on what to do with them.  The TOPS are worthless, so I knew they had to go.  Finally decided on making them into a SET of three square matching tables.  NOW I’m pondering putting those big numbers on top?

Are you SICK of seeing those?  Is that trend ‘over an done with’?  Got any other ideas / inspirations as to a design/theme for painting a set of three tables??
