Important Note: My photos seem a bit wonky from the sale. I decided to still share them with you despite their poor quality.
My annual sale is the magical night where our yard is transformed into an outdoor store and fall event. I sincerely wish to thank everyone who attended.
As the saying goes, “The early bird gets the worm.” These early birds were staked out a healthy hour prior to the sale beginning. They were able to reap the benefits of being early with $10 shopping bucks.
Not long after, the line began to form. We hosted a record crowd this year, with over 100 eager shoppers flooding the gates at the start time. It is safe to say another 100 came throughout the evening. Your excitement, loyalty, and support was and always is appreciated.
I was thrilled to have two local businesses join in on the fall sale fun. The Morris community was excited for The Pop-Up Bakery’s encore performance, as they were summer fan-favorite at the weekly farmer’s market.
Local boutique owner, Julie Evink shared her fabulous clothing, accessories, and home decor as well. Her functional fashion pieces, complete with adorable dressing rooms were a hit among shoppers.
The Junk By Jenny tent had her usual rusty, crusty vintage goodness.
Junk Hunk Jr.’s (aka Ethan) summer junking project was a hit. His silverware jewelry proceeds helped fund his hunting and fishing fund. I don’t it’s necessarily jewelry making that Ethan is into. Rather, he jumps at the chance to use power tools and create just about anything from his garage workbench.
The crowds trickled in even after dark, while they enjoyed the ambiance of the beautiful fall evening and the crackling fire.
The cider was a popular stop at the sale, as always.
A certain winged guest seemed to hang around longer than he should’ve throughout most of the sale. Those who know my junk hunk best know this was very concerning. In other words, Jon is terrified of bats.
As always, I need to give a shout-out to my amazing “behind the scenes” crew.
Overall, the 4th annual fall sale was successful in every way. More importantly than the junk, cake and cookies, or the boutique wares….is how each year, the fellowship and conversations steal the show. Look for big things next October as we celebrate the 5th annual sale.
Until then, I am going to rest. Just kidding. I’ll probably go junking or paint something.
