It’s hard to believe we’ve been doing these Junkstock recaps for four years now! This is the tenth time setting up shop at the farm, and I still fall more in love with the people and the atmosphere every time.
The harvest edition of Junkstock is one of the very best times of year. The crisp air, pumpkins everywhere, and vintage goodness never gets old. You may remember back in April when we had a ridiculous amount of snow. Rain replaced the snow this time — but, it was a great show! The amount of people who will brave any weather to come out and support local businesses never ceases to amaze me.
When I first started this business, I didn’t know prints and greeting cards could tear down walls and open hearts. I didn’t know how much words could impact a person’s perspective and mindset about life. I didn’t know how many truly incredible, inspiring people I would meet.
Opening a shop has blessed me with the opportunity to become friends with complete strangers in a matter of minutes with some simple encouraging words and a little humor. THANKFUL does not even begin to describe how this feels.
The set up and tear down process for the show takes about a week. It’s a ton of work, but it is always worth it. I tried out some new display vignettes this time while keeping many of the same elements to keep a cohesive, branded look. Let me know what you think! Filling the space with seeded eucalyptus is a great way to sprinkle in a touch of nature. It adds SO much!
Six new art prints and six new greeting cards (including some special Christmas cards!) were released at this event. You can find them in the shop and at the bottom of this post. These pieces created some awesome conversations.
We’ll be back at the farm in a few very short weeks for Junkstock’s Winter Wonderland: Nov 30-Dec 2 and Dec 7-9, 2018. If you’re in the Nebraska area, be sure to come say hello!
