Just over one week ago, I was part of the Market Event’s “Market on the Farm” at Stonewall Farms. The setting was absolutely lovely. Seriously. It is actually tough to put into words the splendor and beauty of Stonewall Farms. Below is a video that captures the event, produced by the Stonewall Farms media team.
Take this beautiful setting, add in live music, artisans, scrumptious food, happy customers, and proceeds benefiting a local charity…and you are left with an amazing event.
Allow me to take you on a little tour of Junk By Jenny’s slice of this divine event.
My junk hunk jr. was definitely my right hand man for setup.
I was elated to be located in the loft of the barn at Stonewall Farms. However, two things had me a bit nervous about my vendor placement. 1. How in the world were Ethan and I going to haul all of my treasures up to a barn loft? and 2. How was I going to survive the heat wave that was in the forecast in the upper level? I was pleasantly surprised with both of my concerns. An entire team of volunteers had my trailer unloaded and hauled upstairs in 15 minutes, only to be greeted to an air conditioned barn loft. Wow.
Ethan went straight to work helping with his power tools.
Staging is always a creative explosion. I was so happy how my uniquely-shaped booth area turned out.
I was excited to have a few of my fellow junker friend, Melissa’s pieces in my booth space. Melissa’s eye for design in her lovely signs with vintage fabrics, quilts, and tins were a crowd favorite.
It was fun to see many familiar faces from my Morris fans, former hometown Benson folks, and former colleagues and families from when I taught in Willmar. I know I missed snapping a few photos during the busy times or of the the camera-shy folks. You are appreciated and loved.
It never seems to fail during a show, that I take a few selfies.
This table and set of mis-matched pink chairs were definitely my favorites. At the last minute, I decided to whip up the table and chairs, just days prior to Market on the Farm. Throughout the show, I hoped the table would find a happy customer to take home with them. I’m happy and honored to report the table and chairs won’t be going anywhere. The owners of the farm purchased the trio, along with four more chairs to use as part of their wedding venues. They shared their plans to use the pieces in their bridal suite. It warmed my heart to see one of the chairs as part in a wedding from just last weekend.
Be sure to check out the venue, organizer, and non-profit.
