true blue & tragic. spring 2012 edition.

March 22, 2012

it’s reallllly a travesty. a true-blue tragic reality. and it’s practically IMPOSSIBLE for us to understand. BUT, the word on the street is that SOME of you… HAVE. NOT. BEEN. to. ANTIQUES. week.  


i must take a moment to compose myself.

{i don’t know why i inserted this pic here…i guess just because i love it! a totally fleamarket-worthy cutie pie in the gypsy tent}

OK…so a quick little post to give the NEW kiDS on the BLoCK & the ANtiQUES week veterans, (aka. the never-say-die JuNKin ROAD WaRRIORs) the 411 scoop on the most important & most recent WHATCHA-GOTTA-KNOW deets of antiques week. antiques week 101 if you will.

as OFFiCiAL ambassadors of JUNK, we feel it’s our duty to keep y’all posted on all the exciting happenings of antiques WEEK.

leave no woman behind. leave no piece of junk un-turned.

there’s always quite a bit of confusion as to WHEN antiques week begins…and the answer to this is as clear as, well, mud. every field has different opening dates and while some junkers welcome early shoppers, others prefer you wait until they are officially open.

we set up at ZaPP hALL in warrenton…it’s where the cool kids are. actually there is great, awesome JUNk everywhere at antiques week, as far as the eye can see…and if you have time, you should cover as much ground as possible!

everyone always asks what to wear…and we have observed, that antiques week has it’s own sense of fashion couture. if your boots were made for walkin, wear them kicks. if not, wear COMFORTABLE shoes.

another must: a HAT. cowboy hat, sun hat, baseball cap…whatever fits your fancy, just bring a hat…the TeXAS sun is biG & bright and the fields are, for the most part, not shaded.

ALSO, pack sunglasses, sunscreen, cash, a tape measure, your camera, and a good backpack or tote bag.

just remember…anything goes…

and more is MoRE…

{the roadies back in the day… XOXO!}

the good news is…if you forget any of the above, you can more than likely find it at antiques week!

    Hey girls, this is Jenn from Cincinnati! Just wanted to say, I stumbled upon your site purely by accident, and glad I did. Love it. Congrats on the HGTV upcoming show! My friends and I are trying to get a trip together for the Antique Show next year. But, question, what’s happening in a 157 days? Is there a Fall show?

    I see in the photo of you gals with the band in the background; that’s John Evans. I happened to have watched that show with his featured living room for my first episode of the show. And I can’t tell you how much I loved everything about that living room. Being a honky tonkin’, rockabilly gal myself, I thought it was a die for. The colors and the really neat table top jukebox made into a mini storage shelf. Everything was perfect. And well, John wasn’t so bad on the eyes neither.
