The Great Junk Hunt: Tacoma's Premier Vintage Market

What started out as a childhood hobby has now become a dream job for Linda Albers. This vintage flea market has become a must see attraction in the Tacoma area. "If you are ever in the Tacoma or Western Washington area then make plans to come out to The Great Junk Hunt to have some junkin' fun!"

Great Ways To Use Old Ladders

We know ya'll come across rickety old ladders at garage sales. Most men don't see the value in them so they toss em' out for garbage, after all, if they are rickety then they can't be used for their original purpose...right? 

Sooooo WRONG...

Bigger and Better in Monroe...

Bigger and Better in Monroe...

Nestled about 35 minutes north of Seattle Washington is a town called Monroe. It is a friendly place with lots of antique and vintage shops to discover. Not too far from downtown is the Evergreen State Fairgrounds that gets filled up twice a year with funky junk, handmade goods, local music and lots of laughter. Yes, this is where we host The Great Junk Hunt Vintage Market. This market was a success from the beginning, wonderful hand selected vendors with big crowds coming in from all over the western Washington area.

We've hosted our vintage market in Monroe at the Evergreen State Fairgrounds in the commercial building since we started in Feb. of 2016. As you can tell from the picture, not the most updated or best looking building in the world, but it served it's purpose. We have quickly outgrown this building and are ready to move onto the next chapter.

We are thrilled to announce that we will be moving next door into the Gary D. Weikel Event Center. This event center is still within the Fairgrounds property, in fact it is about a hundred feet away. We are thrilled about this because the building is new and updated with plenty of space for the big crowds that come. There will plenty of room for strollers, wagons and carts to hold all your new found treasures. Oh, and guess what? It has bathrooms inside the building! No more walking to the building next door to tinkle! The Weikel building is 35,000 sq. ft. which means that there will room for more vendors and that means more FAB jUnK for shoppers to discover. 

 Just imagine this huge room filled with vintage and handmade goods.

So come see for yourself all the Farmhouse Funk, Industrial, Vintage, shabby chic, mid-century and handmade goodness all under one roof! Our fall show is November 10 &11, 2017. Share it with your friends and make plans to attend today!

xoxo Linda

Pallet Walls

We want to tackle a pallet wall and we think we have found the solution with this fun project...it's actually more art on the wall than a wall itself.
