Blog: Janet's Jolly Junk

I love to collect junk. I have an eye for junk & can figure out right away when I see junk what I'm going to use it for. If it's fabic I start thinking of doll clothes or stuffed toys or one year I made Christmas rag wreaths & kissing balls all from donated junk fabric. We sold them at our church Holiday fair. I love to collect pottery pieces & plates decoritive jars almost anyhting & I silicone glue them together to make Garden Art. I've been known to raid people's trash for funiture & other goodies...Oh, it's addicting so I guess I'm a junk-a-holic.

garage sale items at our flea market
Tuesday, October 05, 2010

The flea market happened at our church last Saturday. It was sponsored by our UMW the ladies of the church. There were 10 tables. We rent the tables to local vendors & they can sell what they want. Most tables are garage sale type things. I was surprised when my friend got a brand new Dirt Devil for $4 that was a bargain. We got some great junk at our table ....I went home with bags & bags. We made almost $400 just on our one table of junk....I think I was our best customer. One of the men in our church makes his own Italian sausage & every year he donates sausage & pepper & onions for good old fashion hero sandwiches. He does all the cooking too. He also cooks hamburgers & hot dogs & we sell soft drinks & coffee. We have home made cakes, cookies & cup cakes too for sale. The day was perfect ...sunshine galore & lots of laughs & friendly socializing! Our annual fair is on November 6th....come on down!

About Me:

I've always liked to do things with my hands. I knit, sew, embroider, draw, craft, & a lot of other things. I'm slowing down a bit now but still keep active an attend a weekly craft-sewing-knitting club & am always looking for ideas. My biggest regret is that young people don't seem to be interested in learning to knit, sew, etc. I hope it all doesen't become a lost art. I did a sewing session making yo-yo circles with a group of teen girls & they loved it...picking out thier fabrics etc. There is great satisfaction in creativity.
