a few Pics from our last opening.
We have had people asking to view our warehouse at times other than our scheduled 
openings. I am willing to open up by appointment if you are looking for something special. 
Give me a call (712-249-6216) so we can set a time.

Thanks to everyone who came to our opening last week. It was fun to have you here. If you saw something that you wish you had purchased, we might still have it. If you email me, we could arrange to meet at our warehouse.

If you wanted to come but are still "up North" we will have another opening Feb 2 & 3 2018.

I wanted to share this photo of Lilith soaking up the sun at our front door. We are both reacting to our recent "cold snap" - thinking about moving further south. Seriously, I had heard that we Northerners got hyper sensitive to cooler weather. Guess they were right.

Great first day! Good weather and nice crowd. We were so happy to see so many of you.
We'll be open again tomorrow from 9-3.

Been working hard all day getting ready for our opening tomorrow. I took some photos when we were finished.

Hope we will see you tomorrow or Saturday at 2605 Guava in Edgewater. You'll have fun just looking at all our creations. We start at 9 am each day.

Today we put a lot of the major furniture items in place.

I'm really proud of how many unique pieces we have.
Tomorrow we will be adding all the decor items. We have some pretty fantastic Christmas things.

Don't forget our Open House is Friday Oct. 20 9-5 and Saturday Oct. 21 9-3.

It's getting pretty busy here at Junkstyle South. We try to stop restoring and creating about two weeks before a show so that we will have time to price and display. That would mean we should have stopped last Friday.We are pretty close to doing that but I'm willing to bet there will be a little painting going on tomorrow in the workshop.

I'm posting some photos of a few items nearing completion.

Mom, Jan and I are all working on hand crafted Christmas items, too. I spent many years hosting a Christmas Boutique back in Iowa and Mom and Jan were always a big part of it.

I used to love decorating for Christmas when I had my big farmhouse. I collected vintage Christmas decorations for 40 years. Now I have a small Florida condo so I will be offering some of my vintage items for sale.

There are lots more of these.

Lillith would like to get into the Christmas spirit, but she is too busy basking in the Florida sunshine.

Don't forget to come see us October 20 and 21st at 2605 Guava, Edgewater.

It's been over 6 months since my last blog post. I  have to admit I never meant for it to be so long between posts. After the success of our March show, we started acquiring furniture and making plans for our scheduled next show October 20 and 21.

We were just going into Summer when my beloved sister-in law Barb (the fourth member of our Junkstyle South group) was taken from us. Within the last 3 years, my mom and I and my sister and her husband had all moved to New Smyrna Beach to be with Barb and my brother Tom. Her loss was a terrible blow to all of us. For a while I didn't think Junkstyle South could go on but we finally decided that Barb would want us to do just that.

We had just gotten going  when hurricane Irma decided to change the plans again. Unlike many people in Florida we did not have a lot of damage but were without power for over two weeks.

Enough excuses - the show must go on and it will with any luck Friday and Saturday October 20 and 21.

I do think we are working on some great pieces. Here's a photo of Jan and her coffee table just to whet your appetite.

I promise to write here more often in the coming days.
