Fall 2015 at The Vintage Marketplace

I've been setting up at the Springfield Extravaganza in Ohio in May and Sept. for so long that it was before www.facebook.com/JunqueChic even had a name. It's a great show with some of the most talented vendors in the nation. Over 2200 dealers and over 40,000 in attendance. In particular Fall Flea Markets are the most beautiful in presentation. The colors are so rich and it just feels like HOME!
I found a great antique Agricultural Book at an Estate sale a while back and there were tons of these old illustrations in it. Cows, Sheep, Horses, Chickens, Goats, and even some botanicals. I'll be framing them for years!

I built this little cupboard out of some architectural salvage. Mostly beadboard and added a few new pine boards from Lowes. I think it would be great for canned goods. The inside is painted too but, I didn't get a picture. Oops!

I found a field near my house that had this awesome wheat grass everywhere so, of course I filled up every water pail I had. Funny thing was I only took it for a booth "prop" and don't you know that I must have had 100 people ask to buy it? You can't see it very well but, I covered the old farmhouse chair in a red striped grainsack to go with the chest. It didn't sell but, will make a great window display at the shop!

This little Farmhouse chest went pretty quickly. It's just a great size and so many drawers! It's painted out in a combination of Schloss and Trophy by www.missmustardseed.com milk paint and I just love the warm grey! There's few of my handmade pumpkins in the basket. I almost sold all 20 that I took. the rest will go in the shop and on Etsy over the next few days.
I just love making them and will be finishing some more this week. I have some beautiful denim fabric with embroidered tan ribbon and some old feedsack's that I'll be adding to the Junque Chic collection. 

This little Empire chest is still avilable at the shop and is painted out in Trophy by www.missmustardseed.com milk paint with a little silver rubbed on the hardware. This was in our bedroom painted white until about a week before the show Lol! There was another set of drawers over this set but, I just couldn't get it repaired right. It worked out great though. The little red piece pictured above was missing a top and although I had to cut it down a bit, was a perfect solution

This little Farmhouse chest didn't make it back either but, went home with a darling young couple expecting a baby boy. They were going to add a changing tray on top. How sweet! Would you check out that incredible lampshade I found on the "Longest Yard Sale" back in August? It might have to make it's way to my house...Well enough for today. There's more pictures and now I have to restore the shop to order! Whew! That's going to be a job! I know www.facebook.com/RustyNChippysVintageBoutique will be hard at work today at their shop too. Stop by and see our mess Lol!
