To polish or not to polish?

If you know us,  then you know we love our tarnish and rust,  But decided to try something shinny for the holidays (it will always tarnish up again, right?).  If you have the right mix it will work,  beautiful green moss, plucked fresh from the earth.  A cup of coffee and a girlfriend to chat with, and one can of silver polish.  It's all about the transformation, and imagination.  Oh, and a little rust and burlap thrown in are a perfect combination!

Market Day at Cressy & Everett in South Bend

Last Thursday we were  part of a market day in South Bend.  We made lots of serving pieces for holiday entertaining.  After Thanksgiving you will be able to see the new wares at the Old Creamery in Middlebury.  We are firm believer's of giving Thanks and celebrating Thanksgiving, so we are saving Christmas for after the Turkey.    Circa Arts will be having their annual holiday Art walk on December 5th.  There is always lots of goodies to snack on and great local art and gifts for giving.  Please be green and buy local!

Another busy month for Junk E,  and for you I'm sure!  Keep us in mind for getting your home ready for the Holidays...table scapeing, decorating and gifts!  

First of all " The Old Creamery Antique's"  will be open late on November 20th,  from 5-9pm,   and you can take advantage of a 20% discount store wide!

That same weekend Junk Evolution and Rumspringa Wear, Urban Twist and Global Warming will be in Argo's for an open house (see the invite below).  That starts on November 19th.  So if you are taking a road trip to Indy please stop by.

We were also invited to do a market day for Cressy & Everett in South Bend on the 19th.  So as you can see we'll be ready for a holiday by Thanksgiving!
And speaking of Thanksgiving the Creamery is decked out for the season.  I've included some photo's.
