We’ve got “junk in the trunk” — and tons of it.
If you love vintage, up-cycled and repurposed items, you won’t want to miss Junkstock: The Harvest Edition.
Each vendor will bring his or her own “twist” on repurposing everything from vintage jewelry and children’s clothing made from recycled materials to home decor made from scrap metals. The event also will feature live music, food and a kids play area with a bounce house, balloons, face-painting and harvest-themed crafts.
There is a $5 admission fee. Children under 12 are free. Weekend passes are available for $12. A portion of the admission fees will be donated to the Creutzfeldt-Jakobs Disease Foundation & The Dragonfly Project.
It’s a pet-friendly event. So bring along Fido or Fluffy.
Hours will be 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Oct. 12 and 13 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Oct. 14.
What kind of food will be there?
Locomotive Food Truck and Lindsey Enterprises will serve everything from hot apple cider to Caribbean jerk barbecue.
Which bands are performing?
Brad Hoshaw; Midwest Dilemma; Ray Michael-Host; The Donefits; Platte River Rain; Southpaw Bluegrass Band; Kris Lager; Matt Cox; and Matt Whipkey are a few of the performers.
Will there be any celebrities?
Junk insider Cammie Metheny of Flea Market Style Magazine will make an appearance and sign autographs. Flea Market Style Magazine gives great ideas for using junk in your own home. It’s chock-full of vintage-style decorating, projects, collecting tips, photos and home features.
Several of the momaha bloggers will also be in attendance.
What kind of “junk” will be at the event?
Throwing out a few junk terms — such as architectural salvage, farm fresh finds, rescued junque and cottage shabby chic — won’t do you justice. Instead, glance at photographs taken by Candide Couture Photography from the Junkstock in June.
