Funky Junk Vendor Profile & Giveaway!!

It's almost time again, for vendors to load up trailers and pick ups, Uhauls and vans, and bring them bursting (I speak from experience) full of treasures, finds and creations to Funky Junk fall in Sandpoint, ID. ( ) It is a privelege for Jennifer and I to work alongside so many talented and generous vendors, here are just two of the 30....

One of the vendors who will be traveling up to Funky Junk fall is Coquille Gallagher, of Coquille Vintage. She has been hitting the junking trail for well over a decade, and is skilled and well versed in so many genres. She calls herself a "carpentress" and has lately added to her repretoire designing and building work stations, like the amazing blue one you will see in my Joy Harvest booth.

Coquille is someone who cares very much about every piece, and it shows. She designs, repurposes, reupholsters, paints, repairs, and rebuilds almost everything in her booths.

This is Coquille's second time at Funky Junk, her booth in the spring wowed us, and we expect great things from her this again!

So make sure you take a peek inside Coquille's booth, and enjoy every finish, detail and creation! You can also follow her on Facebook under Coquille Vintage & on her blog at

One of our longest attending vendor, and all around favorite people is Robyn Pirie, the curator and owner of the fabulous Scout. The pieces I have bought from her are still among my favorites, and I've seen some of the incredible finds she is bringing this time to Sandpoint...her booth is not to miss!

Her design asthetic is spot on, and she is extremely knowledgeable about her vintage clothing, jewlery and carefully picked pieces for the home. Her booth is a perrennial (or bi-annual, well, anyway, a twice yearly) fan and vendor favorite. This is one of the many gorgeous displays in her home.

I think Robyn mentioned creating something with this fantastic tin celing tile to bring to Funky Junk fall....hmmm.... Make sure you take some time to linger in Scout's booth and enjoy every single booth and vendor, and we'll see you very soon!!

And now for a little giveaway...I'll be randomly drawing for someone to recieve a Funky Junk necklace and a Funky Junk tee...and you know I always throw in a little something else along for the, just post that you follow Funky Junk Antique Show on Facebook and this blog; and for an extra entry, post that you follow Jennifer's great blog !! Next time: Vendor list & sneak peeks~Hollie

    I love your blog! You have such an eye for fun things to display around your home. My husband is not as forgiving as yours; I have to limit my collections. So I live vicariously through your posts.
    I have read your blog for a few months, "liked" you on facebook, and am thrilled to discover Jennifer has a blog as well.
    Keep on junkin'
