Put yourself in a merry mood by joining the Girlfriends at their 4th annual Holiday Market held in the gorgeous Heritage Hall at the Thurston County Fairgrounds. This wonderful log building was built in the 1930’s and embraces you with its warmth and history. The 25+ vendors are outstanding in their taste, decorating and enthusiasm. It truly is a feel good event. We open Friday from 4-8. Get there early and you’ll be welcomed with cookies, live fiddle music on stage and first dibs on all the treasures for sale. You can even plan on having dinner with your friends after you’ve checked out the sale. If you can’t make it Friday, we’ll be open all day Saturday from 9-4. Grab a hot drink and a bite to eat and head into the Hall. We’ll have vendors selling eclectic décor to country/primitive décor. Beautiful handcrafts, jewelry, knitted accessories, linens, signs, collectibles, antiques, vintage Christmas, wreaths and greenery, every nook and cranny will be filled with delightful stuff. Lunch will be offered too. This is a very sweet show not to be missed!
There are piles of stuff all over the house and outside too waiting to be 'expertly' packed into my van and spirited off to Puyallup for the Funky Junk Sisters Sale. I can't deny that I'm excited about this weekends sale, half the fun is being surrounded by so many incredible vendors. I'm beyond curious to see how the turnout is for their second sale, and if it's even better than June, then I'll be convinced that the internet is the magic key. So far eight of our Girlfriend vendors will be there this weekend so you'll get a taste of what our sale will be like too. I hope you'll come out and visit us and shop lots. Be sure and stop by Erin Kiley's #43 and mine, #44, (Sharon's) on the corner.
My name is Shelly, I am a wife and a mother of two boys, ages 11 and 14. I love all things vintage.. My good friend Sharon and I decided to start something new seven years ago....and that's how the Girlfriends Holiday Market got started......
and I'm Sharon, also married and a mom to four "kids". We have two boys and two girls and a new daughter-in-law who warms my heart when she calls me mom. The kids are 29, 27, 25, 23, and 19!! We also added two lab puppies, 3 months old.
With this crew I've learned the art of multi-tasking, putting on really good birthday parties, and most recently a wedding. Like Shelly, I love old stuff too. The Girlfriends Market is my most favorite event so far!
