Vintage Marketplace

The countdown is on and there is less than a month to go. Soon enough I'll be packing up the Junque and heading to the Vintage Marketplace once again. VM is returning to the Springfield Extravaganza in September and now that the Junkers in training are just about back to school I'm kicking the sorting, picking and projects into high gear.
Yesterday I got going on a really cool laundry cart I picked back in July.
She started like this:

Lots of potential but the plastic liner was really rather creepy. I knew it had to go so set to work.

She is one heck of a beauty now as she sports her vintage dresser scarf liner. I sewed on a few ribbon ties and fell in love all over again.

Imagine my thrill while cleaning her up to discover that both the basket AND the rolling cart section fold up for space saving storage!!!

Some lucky shopper is going to come home with an amazing addition to their laundry room! I wish I had space to keep her (but of course I feel that way about most of my Junque - I wouldn't buy it if I didn't love it to begin with).
Heading out to put her in the garage where she will await her Vintage Marketplace debut. Mark your calendars for September. Hope to see you there!

I am guessing we are in? I know what you mean Carrie, I want to keep everything too. That is a great laundry basket once you fluffed her up.
