LOVE OF JUNK

Flea Market Décor - - Treasure Hunting -

Where: When:

June 15 and 16

Why:

THIS MAR­KET TAKES PLACE ON A BEAU­TI­FUL FARM IN WALLA WALLA’S WINE COUN­TRY. It’s surrounded by 150 winer­ies and a laven­der farm. Sold yet? There’s also a his­toric down­town area with shops and ex­cel­lent restau­rants. At Love of Junk there are about 75 ven­dors, food trucks and live mu­sic that make this feel like a va­ca­tion get­away.

“Our ven­dors seem to know what is ‘in,’” says founder Bar­bara Floyd. “A lot of won­der­fully done and re­pur­posed things. And the real, au­then­tic stuff. I don’t take things like goat’s milk soap. We aren’t a farm­ers’ mar­ket.” For more details, check out love­ofjunk.com.

[GOOD TO KNOW] “WE’VE HAD DIF­FER­ENT WEATHER EV­ERY YEAR,”

laughs Bar­bara. “We have had it freez­ing, high winds, rain, beau­ti­ful sunny days. So be pre­pared and come to have fun. You’ll be over­look­ing the Blue Moun­tains.” No pets and the event is smoke-free. Kids

un­der age 12 are free, $5 ad­mis­sion for oth­ers.
