Junk Salvation...Can I Get An "Amen?!"

Salvation comes in many forms, it is said.
And truth be told, 
I've experienced more than a few.

But prior to last Spring,
I had yet to relish firsthand the
"hallelujah, lordy
will ya look at all that heavenly JUNK !!!" 
form of redemption brought to junkers
far and wide by the beauteous and beneficent 
otherwise known as real-life sisters
Dixie Kazmark DeRocher and Linda Kazmark Albers.

These dynamite bundles of sibling junkin' energy
are responsible for Junk Salvation Vintage Flea Market
shows that the sisters tirelessly put on across this great land of ours,
rounding up the cream of the crop to join them.

Although they are based in Puyallup, Washington,
that hardly stops them from venturing to parts near, far
and in between to share the Junk Salvation love. 
Hooray and another Hallelujah for that!

Last Spring, I caught up with the gals at their Texas show,
held at the J.Lorraine Ghost Town in Manor, Texas,
near Austin.

And whaddaya know?
Fifi O'Neill caught a gander of the photos
I snapped there, and has featured them and my photos
in the Spring 2013 Romantic Country Magazine
in their "Best of the Fleas" !

The sisters....sweetness, beauty, talent and junking goddesses!
And coming back to Texas this year!

Here's the best of the rest.

The ghost town setting was the perfect backdrop
for a day full of spirited junking. { groan, I know... }

Magic Mike's got NOTHIN' on this guy.

I finally had the pleasure of meeting 
this talented and gracious lady,
Jana Holland of Collected Treasures and Nettie Jane Designs.

And then I bumped into sweet Maggie Lopez of The Veranda,
and she graciously allowed me to snap the photo below,
full of her wowza stamped spoon jewelry....

Which in turn caught the eye of one Sue of Vintage Rescue Squad,
which led to this.....

Thank you, Maggie and Sue!
You too can have a copy of the 2013 Dreaming of Junking Calendar
simply by clicking HERE.

And another favorite...there is NOTHING that Brandy does
that I do not love! Her creative mind works in magically
twisted ways, and her creations never fail to astound and inspire.

Visit her Etsy Shop, but make sure you have your
credit card number handy, you're gonna need it.
Her creations are wonderfully, quirkily addictive!

But my favorite photo of the day
had to be THIS one below....

That pretty much says it all.
The beer was cold and wonderful, but the drins?
I wouldn't know.

Usually I can't afford to take the time to comment on many blogs but when I saw the Angel winged, shabby chic white laced, rhinestoned buckled, vintage 'dressed' form, I had to say wow and wow. Not to mention the male mannequin posing in..well..a very provocative manner. Great post and great work you do here, Anne.



Debra@CommonGround said...

I think someone had had a few "drins" too many! Love all the photos of that amazing talent!

Sue said...

Thanks so very much for the eye candy! I've been working at my own store so much the past few weeks, it is nice to see different "eye candy"!
I SO want the legs that have the butt covered with "North Texas LBR. CO" on it! Any info on it? Great pixs Anne, thanks for the post!

Take care,

Sisters Treasures said...

I got a copy and loved your photos. I just wish I could have made it to the show. Unfortunately this year's show is the same time as Trade Days.
Congrats on continuing to have such great success with your photography.

Congratulations! Your photos are wonderful and the show looks fabulous! I love the Funky Junk Sisters! Dixie was one of the first people I "met" on FB and she was so sweet to me, nelping me with questions about blogging and other things. I need to make it to one of their shows some time. I really really do!!!! Can't wait for my magazine to show up so I can see your wonderful photos in person! Hugs, Leena

Sandi~A Cottage Muse said...

To set up in a ghost town, how fun!!
Already got my issue in the mail, love it! The displays are so inspiring...what a fabulous collection of treasures!!

Unknown said...

Oh my gosh, that would be a dream to go to and meet all those creative gals! I will check out all the links you shared, thank you! Loved everything, could not pick a favorite if I tried!

Okay, one of my New Years resolutions is taking the time to leave more notes for my blogging friends! I always read posts in a reader and it makes it hard to leave a comment or two. But I do not miss a post! Love seeing the things you share and your lovely home. I wish I had more time to blog, but I work part time at our local library. I wanted to share with you my new blog, just opened this week.... it will be for my vingage and digital work... including printables you might enjoy. I also have my home and garden site, This week I am doing a look back to my spring garden.

Hope to be able to connect more in this new year. I am spending less time on Facebook and gave up twitter and everything else. A girl needs time to create, decorate and GARDEN ya know!

God bless....Brooke

Unknown said...

Hi Anne......what a treat and honor to be included with all the fabulous talent you captured in Manor. It was a fun show to do and meeting you was truly a highlight of the weekend. I sincerely appreciate all of the exposure (no pun intended) with your photos and putting my designs out there. I cannot wait until you either come to Canton or are able to make it to Arlington to one of my Showcase Events....or any other time for that matter. Truly a sweet soul you are :)with a great eye and talent for have met your calling!


Unknown said...

Hmmmm....I will try this again as my comment is somewhere floating in the blog universe. I thank you for showcasing some of my designs and for the exposure (no pun intended) for my clothing and Shoppe. The show was wonderfully fun, but it was truly a highlight meeting you. I am so hoping to see more of you this year as you wonder up our way to to Canton. Would so love to sit and sip some wine and laugh a lot about all and who we know.....:) You are wonderfully talented in your photography and have a great eye and have truly found your calling :)

Unknown said...

Seriously, I want something in everyone of those photos!! Beautiful job Anne!
And I love how the show was held in the ghost town, what a fantastic idea!
Hope you have a great weekend.

Debi Ward Kennedy said...

Congratulations, my friend! Your images always capture the very best of any event ;0) Vendors always bring their very best to shows and it is so lovely to see them applauded this way.

And that hot pink Christmas tree looks VERY familiar! I decorated it one year for one of their shows in Puyallup and then shared it on my blog:
