The Envior-Fest and a Sneak Peek

I was just looking through my pictures to see what I could post and realized I never posted about the Elkhart Envior-Fest on July 13.  The Wellfield Botanical Gardens are pretty amazing to start with and the Fest was very well attended and had some amazing products available.  If you are curious to know about great sustainable products and services and education opportunities that are available then by all means look for this next summer.

For our space we decided to go with one of our favorite themes "Industrial" and then put the items back until our "ROSEY THE RIVETER"  month (we're all over Industrial!) in September.  So here's a peek of what you'll see.  Sorry but these items will not be available for sale until September, except for the awesome new T-shirts that Kim Cole of Taproot T's made for us.  They are available now and only at junk Evolution.

I'm finally parting with my favorite door because it just works perfectly

The East Bank Village shops open at 10am so you can get an early start in our neck of the woods!  junk E will be open until 6 PM on Saturday.  We'll have special guest Kim Cole (reading palms out in front of the shop) and at 4:00 Dena Woods singing her heart out.  Join us for a fun filled day!

A Big Event!

Remember our friends who actually met in junk Evolution?  Well 3 1/2 years later here they are as man and wife!  Linda and I have been meeting with Jessica for months helping to make all her plans and dreams come true for her special day.  And oh what a day!  It was a perfect day for a wedding and she didn't miss any details.  We were so happy to be part of the special event.  
As many of you know, I've been out of commission for 3 weeks.  I'm finally feeling like my old self again, but much slower than before!    I avoided first friday so I could save all my energy for this special day, decorating and party going.  I am so anxious to get back to work and see all of our junk Family again.  So thankful for Bernie and Linda pulling all the extra weight of my absence.
