We are excited to host “JunkFest” twice a year! This event is similar to our 2nd Saturday Markets, but will be filled with everything and anything! This pickers paradise of sorts is the perfect event to attend to score some great deals and cool finds. The event will be filled with all of the “project pieces” that our vendors bought and never had the time to get around to doing. Dig through all the overflow from their booth and sift through the “junk” they bring out.
