What the Pfarkel's have been working on

Just to let you know that we really have been working on projects for our upcoming two shows in Sept.  Here is one before and after.

Then we found all these insolators that are now clean of all the dust and grime and we have designed some of them into candle holders, etc.

The Pfarkel Sisters have been busy!!!!

The Pfarkel Sisters cleaned up and put things away after the 3rd Annual Vintage Treasures Market in June.  July was spent mostly sweating while getting what seemed like very little done.   But, we have been busy working on addition projects for our upcoming TWO September events.
First we will be vendors at JunkMarket Style's "Fleamarket Under Glass" at Otten Bros Garden Center in Long Lake, MN on Sept. 7 - 10.   Additional information at the following websites:  www.junkmarketsyle.com ,  www.ottenbros.le2.getliveedit.com

Next we will be doing Junk Bonanza at Canterbury Downs in Shakopee, MN from Sept  15 - 17.
We will get the trailers reloaded for this event and turn around to get set up for this show.  Check out www.junkbonanza.com

Youngest Pfarkel trying out for entertainment

We did not even know we were having entertainment for our upcoming event.
But, it does look like Fun!!
See you there on the 17 & 18 of June.

Directions to Vintage Treasures Market

We have received information from viewers that the google map gives mixed information on directions.

US Hwy 52 goes south from Rochester to Fountain, as you are coming into Fountain Co. Rd. 11 is a left hand turn (watch for Root Prairie Lutheran Church signs and OURS), take Co. Rd. 11 for approx. 4 miles (go beyond the turn to the church 1 mi.) and the driveway is on the right.

If you are coming from Iowa or somewhere else South of Fountain, take US 52 north to Fountain continue to the north edge of town and turn right unto Co. Rd. 11, take for approx. 4 mi. and driveway is on the right.

We have been adding color and refinishing floors at the country house.   These have been cold,rainy day projects.   This Pfarkel sister is nailing base trim board not taking a nap on the job.

Vintage Treasures Market is now Quad State

We just added two vendor/artisans from Iowa--210th St. Designs and Junk revised and one from Nebraska - Dorothy Waltz.   Last week we also added KBB Creative Creations from Chatfield.
It looks like they all have some wonderful items for all the shoppers.

The Pfarkel Sisters are on the move (well for sure this one is).  The picture above was taken two days after we bought this farm from my back porch, which is only 14mi. south of St. Charles.   This will be the location of our events from now on.   The first one is scheduled for June, 2011.   See additional post.
This is what it looked like at Xmas
