Three days of peace, love, music and junk. Sounds like heaven, doesn't it?
Junk vendors from five states will return to Junkstock: Harvest Edition at the old dairy farm at 315 S. 192nd St. this weekend to sell their vintage treasures, antiques and artisan-made pieces.
Here are the details: When is it?
Junkstock is 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
How does it work?
Each vendor will bring his or her own twist on re-purposing items, which will include vintage jewelry and children's clothing made from recycled materials and home decor made from scrap metal. The event also will feature live music, food and a play area for kids with a bounce house, balloons, face-painting and harvest-themed crafts.
What kind of “junk” will be at the event?
Architectural salvage, farm-fresh finds, rescued junque and cottage shabby chic — those are just some of the categories of items you will find. You can also visit www.junkstockomaha.com to get a better idea.
