Love Week

Love Week

By: Abby Lehmer

Happy Love Week, Junkstock fam! Can you believe we are less than 60 days away from our first event of the year?! Time flies when you’re having fun, right? Here at Team Junkstock we’ve been doing just that. Since the start of 2017 we have made it our mission to get settled into our old-but-new forever home. We can’t wait to show you where we’re headed! But first – we want to take a minute to reflect on where we came from.

Leaving the ol’ dairy farm wasn’t easy – so many memories made and lost treasures found in the first few years of Junkstock’s life there. Leaving a first home is always a little bittersweet! However, we’ve been blessed with a growing family of Junkers and we were ready to grow with all of you. It didn’t take long for us to know for sure that we would fit right in at the century-old Sycamore Farms.

What we have come to love about moving is that we get the chance to do exactly what embodies the Junkstock brand – take a fun and funky piece and give it new life! While we couldn’t bring everything, some of our favorite features came with us, as some of you may have noticed last fall. We love the vibe of looking around to find pieces of our past to remind us of those good ol’ days!

In honor of Valentine's Day, this week we want to show our affection for some of our favorite parts of Junkstock! From our fabulous food and junk vendors, rockin’ bands, and support team (who doesn't LOVE the Junk Hunks?!) – to each of you, who love and support Junkstock as much as we do – you make it all possible!

Please join us in sharing what you love most, too!

Happy Small Business Saturday

Happy Small Business Saturday

As a small business ourselves we love the fact that Junkstock has been able to help so many other small business owner's dreams come true too!

This summer we asked our vendors to share some of the things they love most about Junkstock and how it has affected their business. This Small Business Saturday we wanted to share some of their responses. Enjoy!

"Junkstock has opened more doors than we can count! We have met so many wonderful and inspiring people - not only other vendors, but customers as well. We feel that because of Junkstock we will be able to take our business to the next level and open a shop in the near future."
-Julie Zielinski & Stacy Fahrenbruch, Salvage Sisters & Co. of Omaha, NE
"Junkstock has absolutely changed my life in countless ways. The first time I attended the event, I was instantly hooked. I've always loved everything vintage, and it was a breath of fresh air to find out that I wasn't the only one with this crazy, beautiful obsession. The amazing vignettes I saw were the foundation for my Instagram feed, and I honed in on my style from there. Junkstock has truly helped me to discover my passion, and it has introduced me to some incredible people who have become close friends. When passion and relationships come together, magic happens. I am beyond thankful for the impact Junkstock has had on my life. How would I describe Junkstock to someone who has never been? Three words: A vintage wonderland.”
-Jillian McClenahan, The Anastasia Co. of  Omaha, NE
"Junkstock made me believe in my creations and want me to do more- learn more and create more!! I went from joining my dad a year and a half ago and thinking I was a little crazy for leaving my dental assisting job of almost 14 years to excited for what lays ahead in this new journey. I truly believe Junkstock has helped me explore more and create more. I am in the shop more creating than salvaging these days!! My dad has taught me how to use a lot of tools and leaves me and goes out and does what he loves which is tearing down the buildings!”
-Dawn Backes & Dan Klimesh, NEI Architectural Salvage & Skräp Work of Ridgeway, IA
"Junkstock has helped expanded my business beyond anything I could imagine was possible. It has given me the proof I needed to realize that I have a legitimate business and it is possible for me to work for myself and do something that I love doing.”
-Adam Bialas, Handcrafted by Adam Biala of Omaha, NE
“Our business dream has grown with Junkstock as the catalyst. We grew into this dream full-time since Junkstock. We are heading into our own studio/warehouse from a rented store front. We have been inspired by Sara and Junkstock. Smitten by the magic of Junkstock. We have made great friends and met hard-working makers and crafters, businesses who really do eat, sleep and love what they do. It’s a camaraderie, a heart filled connection like no other festival united as one. The people who attend feel that they are at “Woodstock” in this day and age of the current movement of junk and repurposing that hit at the same time Sara started Junkstock and we started our store. We have promoted Junkstock as the “Woodstock” for lovers of junk, good vibes, connections, music, food, and a festival where everyone comes together to make this the best and most desired place to be for an experience of a lifetime that they won’t find at any other show.”
-Lorinda Emelander, From My Hand To Yours of Allegan, MI

If you have a dream yet to be discovered, come join us at Junkstock next year. Maybe some of the magic will rub off and inspire you to your next adventure.
