Farm to corral vendors for June junk sale


A two-day vintage market is taking root this summer at the farm of Doug and Brenda Swenson.

According to an announcement, the pair are seeking vendors to participate in the giant sale at their farm property and 1910 home overlooking the Blue Mountains. The event takes place June 14 and 15 at 221 Valley Chapel Road.

Items for all ages and tastes are anticipated at the event dubbed “Love of Junk.” Everything from funky finds to handcrafted pieces and salvaged goods to entice everyone from shoppers and Looky-Lous to collectors and dealers.

Among the vendors already planning to set up will be a caravan of Walla Walla area mobile vendor boutiques: Carovana, owned by Kimberly Miner in her 1979 camper; Haulin’ Sass, owned by Shannon Smith-McKeown; and Wayfarer Boutique, owned by Keri Marin in a 1967 Oasis A-15 vintage camper. Other vendors will reportedly be coming from Oregon, Washington and Arizona. MaryJane’s Farmgirls on the Loose will be among the visitors, camping and displaying their special trailers. Others will include food vendors and food trucks.

Additionally a group of children will offer their artwork among the gardening items, home decor and gifts.

Vendors will all sell their own items, so cash will be the best way to pay. A $5 entry fee will be charged for all those over 12. The hope is to build the retail sale into an annual event.

Vendors interested in participating are asked to call Barbara Floyd at 602-321-6511, email her at or visit
