Magic Words -- Junk Jubilee!

Yep -- just walk into my shop and studio at 7518 Hickman Rd anytime now through April 26 and utter the magic words: Junk Jubilee!

Those words will earn you a special discount on that day's purchases and your name into a drawing (no purchase necessary for the drawing) for a bagful of goodies!

It is the Great Junk Jubilee Promotion!!!!

And be sure to visit the section of the store that I call Picker's Paradise! There is yet-to-be-rehabbed furniture and decor for you to buy at a reasonabl price and re-do yourself. Of course, we would like to see Annie Sloan Chalk Paint used in your technique, but not required.

Let's make the 2nd year of Junk Jubilee absolutely fantabulous!

May Workshop and Studio Time Program Announced

Thought you would enjoy the tee shirt Annie Sloan signed for me at the 2012 Annie Sloan Tour in Oak Brook, Il a couple weeks ago. Annie liked the shirts so much, she took one home. Mine is on display at the new store!

We are up and running! Well, we could use some shelving in the storage room and the sink installed. And, we could use some paint over the primer on the walls.

That did not stop us from doing a little junking while we were gone on family matters last weekend. Found a couple terrific places to hunt out deals in southwest Iowa. Landed a terrific sideboard for a very reasonable price as well as a cute French provincial style side table. I have more ideas than time -- how about you?

But we are moving forward nonetheless! Stop by and see us or inquire about the following new developments! Sign up for one, the other or both today! Bring a friend!

Studio Time -- This is a program where you can bring your own piece into the studio and work on it while I am working on my own projects. By availability and appropriateness of the piece! $10 per hour and you are required to purchase the products we sell at the store for your finish. Call 515-991-7383.

Chalk Paint 101 -- May 19, 9-11:30 am. Covers 3 basic painting techniques, distressing and clear and dark wax. Bring your own piece (no bigger than a large drawer) and I provide the materials. Class size 4-8. $75.

AND don't forget --

Junk Jubilee -- April 27-29 at the State Fairgrounds. Two demos daily and a booth by TLC Vintage Collection!
