Tales from Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market

LindseyMay 2014, The Vintage Market, VintageLeave a Comment

Today I wanted to share a couple fun stories with you from the market. To me one of the best things about the markets is all the AMAZING people that you get to meet. Everyone has a great story to share and now after 3 years we start to see a lot of the same shoppers each time.

These are stories from our vendors about some of their favorite shoppers. Thank you Kristen from Moonstruck Vintage for the first one!

A tale of two typewriters….
Last Fall at the Junk in the Trunk Vintage Market, I was completely charmed by a wonderful 10 year old boy who purchased a Remington portable typewriter from me. I was struck by his passion for typewriters, his knowledge, and by what an extremely polite and sincere young man he was. So, what a wonderful surprise it was, when late in the day at this Spring’s market I recognized one of my very favorite customers – Sean!

In no time, we were chatting about some of the latest additions to his typewriter collection, and I showed him some photos from my recent visit to the Mesa Typewriter Exchange. Fortunately, I still had one typewriter left – a Royal Safari. A deal was struck, and Sean now has a new addition to his collection. I was very flattered when Sean gave me the honor of naming the typewriter – I hope this is the beginning of a long friendship for he and Katharine.

Truly, it’s the moments like these that are the sweetest part of what I do! He completely made my day!

The next couple stories are from Leah from Ruby Mae Jewelry.

Peggy had bracelets made for herself and her sisters Pat & Pam. They are in honor of their Dad who recently passed away. They are loaded with charms representing his passions and past times. He loved motor boating, carpentry, martini’s and schnauzers. He was in the Air Force and had a great zest for life. He is dearly missed. Peggy surprised her sister Pat with her bracelet when they came to my booth at the the recent Junk In The Trunk show in Scottsdale.Hand stamped charms by my dad Jake.

These two little girls were in my Ruby Mae Jewelry booth giggling and I heard them say, “our name is famous”, when I asked if one was named Ruby Mae, she said, “I’m Ruby Lee, This is Etta Mae”

A JITT shopper named Liz walked into my booth with a bag of striped green beads and asked if I would make her a bracelet. She selected a hand stamped letter “L” charm, told me things she likes and I went home and created this for her. I hope she loves it.

And a few stories from Jen with VintagebyJen.

This little boy was fantastic!! He needed this and that because “he didn’t have this at my Grandma’s house”.

The gal on the left was elated to find this vintage mailbox. Her Grandfather had owned the company which made these mailboxes. The company has since closed- she has been looking for one for several years- and where did she find it? @VintagebyJen

Three Great No Bake Treats…Because I Might Die if I Have to Turn on My Oven.

bethDIY, Family Life, Guest Blogger, Recipe, ThriftyLeave a Comment

no bake treatsPeople, it is warm here in sunny AZ. I always thought that since I grew up here, I could tolerate the heat so much better than your average non – native. But throw in a couple years past my 30th birthday (I’m not saying how many) and oh yeah a pregnancy, and I am soooooooo not looking forward to 110 plus weather.
One way we natives have learned how to cope with the nastiness that is the AZ summer is to NOT turn on our ovens as much as possible. We grill, we eat salads, whatever we can do to add another degree to the temp in our houses. Cheapskates like me also know that this helps keep the energy bill at minimum, too. But I do love being able to pull out a healthy homemade snack when the little hooligans become ravenous and want something more that a piece of fruit. All three of theses treats have a good dose of protein too, and are pretty quick to make. Just throw the ingredients together, blend or mix, and you’re good to go. So her they are, my three favorite no bake threats for when you feel like you might die if you have to turn on the oven.176
Mix and Match Date Bars / Balls
1 1/2 cups pitted dates (I use deglet dates and get them at Sprouts. This is a little more than half a package)
1 cup dried fruit such as raisins, cherries or prunes
3/4 cup nuts I’ve used cashews and almonds
other optional add ins – raw cacao nibs, good quality chocolate chips, flax seeds, unsweetened coconut flakes
combine all ingredients in your food processor and pulse until you have a sticky mess. Sometimes my food processor gets a little hung up, so check to see if the blade is stuck on a pit. Dump out onto parchment paper or a silicone mat and either use your rolling pin to flatten and cut into bars or roll into balls. I’ve done both, but end up doing the balls more often because the little people can help.
166No Bake Peanut Butter Energy Bites
I got this recipe from Smashed Peas and Carrots a couple of years ago and they’ve definitely become a favorite in our house. I’ll sometimes throw the ingredients together during breakfast, chill and then roll ‘em up for snack a couple hours later.
178Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars
I never would have come up with this combination myself, but I love how the sweet and salty come together! And I found this on a very healthy friend’s Pinterest board so i can tell myself that they are definitely healthy. The original recipe is here at Bakerlady. They’re pretty rich, so just a small one will do for sure. I keep these in the freezer because they can get a little soft. The girls have a great time smashing up the pretzels too!
So there they are, my three favorite quick and easy no bake treats. Hope they make your summer just a little bit cooler!

Who else out there loved Mama’s Cold Brew Coffee as much as we did?  Wasn’t it just the best?!  We just wanted to say a BIG THANK YOU to them for coming out and spending their day with us, because we couldn’t have made it through the day without them!!!
