Glorious “Junk” and Treasure Hunting in Old Town

Plans are well underway for Old Town Clovis’ “Glorious Junk Days,” to be held on Sunday, October 21, 2012.  This will be the second show of its kind this year and spaces are filling up quickly.

Glorious Junk Days was created to showcase items not normally seen at our regular Antiques & Collectibles Fairs, which limits what Vendors can bring.  Glorious Junk can include repurposed and refurbished items, DIY Projects, handcrafted items, shabby chic and architectural finds – as well as the antiques you’ve come to enjoy in Old Town.  The October event will feature glorious junk booths on the main portion of Pollasky, and antiques and collectibles on Fifth Street.  Contact the B.O.O.T. office if you’d like an application, or download one here.

In addition to our normal event, we will be holding the first ever “Glorious Junk Hunters” at the October 21st show!  This will be similar to BBC’s “Bargain Hunt” where teams are given a certain amount of money and set loose to find the best bargains at an Antique fair.

“Glorious Junk Hunters” will have four teams, which will be chosen by raffle, who will be given $100 each.  Teams will have to traverse the streets of Old Town, trying to find the best bargains within a set amount of time.  At the end of the time teams will have their items appraised and the winners chosen based on who has purchased the most valuable items for their money.   First through Third place winners will be given Old Town Scrip and allowed to keep their finds!  A percentage of funds obtained through the raffle will be donated to Clovis Pet Adoption.  Raffle Tickets will be $10 each and sold starting in September at local businesses.  Check back at oldtownclovis.org for more information!
