Last year when I heard about Junkstock I knew I had to see it. The photos on the internet of all of the cute vintage findings were great. At the last minute we almost thought we wouldn’t be able to go because it had rained so much the night before that the fields for parking were very muddy. While we did see several people who had gotten stuck in a soft spot they did have people their with the means to help pull them out. There were LOTS of people there braving the mud with us.
Thankfully my family enjoys flea markets almost as much as I doThere were many unique vendors who mostly had vintage items for your home, which is what I’m usually looking for anyway so we didn’t have to walk past booth after booth of tools and things that I’m just not very interested in- although sometimes you will find an amazing piece at those types of booths.
I love that most of the vendors really cared about the appearance of their booths and set it up in ways that appeal to people.
I could have taken home everything in this set-up, it’s so chic and fresh.
There were also food vendors that had great food and very customized concession trailers. It’s too bad Junkstock is the same weekend as what my community will be having our 125th celebration because I would love to bring them to town. Jim had some Cactus Jack Nachos that weren’t your ordinary nachos, they had smoked brisket and all kinds of yumminess on them. I opted for lunch from the pizza trailer and had a slice of Brisket Pizza that was really good too.
Despite the mud, heat, and humidity we had a great time and will definitely make it back to Junkstock.
