I met some amazing Junkers through blogging a few years ago. I followed their blog then one day I got the courage to email one of them and ask for some blogging advice because I really liked their style. It was the first year I started blogging (4 years ago). With that, it started a friendship because they were also local in Dallas. I attended some junk shows that they were a part of which was so awesome because of my huge love for that stuff.
I planned on starting my own junk business 2 years ago but with my dad in the hospital and planning a wedding, those plans took a backseat. Of course it didn't stop me from building an inventory in our garage though. This past summer, I went to a garage sale that was bench held by the same person who hosts a junk show twice a year in DFW. While I was there, my sweet friend happened to be there too with her husband and it was such a great surprise. While we were there, she introduced me to the hostess and recommended me for their winter show.
Fast forward a few weeks after that, I got approved to be in the show and then the race began. I had to file for tax permit for state of Texas. That's when it got "real" for me. My hand shook as I filled out the application. I have to be grown up and file taxes quarterly now for the business.
I've been painting and sanding every night after work and on weekends. It's in 2 weeks and I think I'm ready. I know there's so much that i don't know and I'm so nervous. Todd is just happy to get rid of the huge ginormous pile of furniture and knick knacks out of the garage. Lol.
Between getting ready for the show, and this weekends Holliween party, I've been swamped. I don't mind though. I like always staying busy.
So I created my FB page yesterday so if you happen to be on there, go like my page Junque Dancer. I will start to post pics of items in selling tonight when i get home. I was busy last night and didn't take any pictures.
I can't wait to tell you all about the show!! I went as a shopper last year to this show and I can't wait to be a vendor now.
Have a great weekend! I most likely won't post tomorrow because I have the day off to wrap up things for the party.
