Come one...come all...ART and ARCHITECTURE and JUNK - come together in a BIG way!

It is with great pleasure that Sue Whitney announces the collaboration of Art & Architecture and JUNKMARKET Style in a retail affair of unrivaled quality. The inaugural sale of the dynamic duo is scheduled for May 6th, 2010 through May 9th, 2010. A charitable kick-off gala will be held on the evening of May 5th, 2010. Their goal is to provide uncommonly good vintage furnishings, stylish art and re-designed accessories for your home, finery for your garden, and many other embellishments to suit your fancy….all under one roof. In addition, classes will be available for those of you who want to be in the know. The event will be housed in the historic Art & Architecture building located at 3338 University Avenue S.E,, Minneapolis, Minnesota. A full floor of architectural salvage, an outdoor garden annex, an artist’s loft filled to the brim, and classrooms with character all await your arrival. There will be something for everyone…. from stuff in the rough for the do-it yourselfers to turnkey designs and everything in between.

Mark your calendars for this amazing event!  May 5-9, 2010 in Minneapolis, MN!

More details to come - so stay tuned to my blog AND JUNKMARKET Style.  Visit the site now to see what junkers are saying...ART & ARCHITECTURE JUNKMARKET STYLE

I'm making plans to come with a couple friends (I've got fingers and toes crossed - hoping everything falls into place), and I know a few other contributors will be in attendance too, along with our fearless leader, Sue Whitney... 

I'm hoping to meet many JMS members and fellow junkers  (who seem like good friends already).  It's gonna be BIG, BIG fun!!

Gretchen, me, Sue, Lani & Candy

Have a great day!



  1. Oooh.... how I wish I could attend, just the pic of tthat cool Junk Market sigh made me drool! Hugs, Janna

  2. Hey Kathy - In case you need another reason to justify your next trip to Minnesota, the Spring Gold Rush will be held at the Rochester fairgrounds the same weekend. It's my favorite flea market to kick off the outdoor season. I've mentioned it to Candy too. Keep it in mind!
