Heavy lifting gets real at JUNKFEST...Big Bertha was SOLD!



Our friends Diane and Linda from the Barn Chix
 had a "little" something up their sleeve when they arrived at JunkFest...



 Let's just call her BIG BERTHA...
and believe us when we say this old merchant cabinet was incredible!
15 feet long and 31 drawers of vintage glory!






These unsuspecting Junk Hunks
had no idea what they were about to 
be called to do!








After all,....
they had already had to wrestle a man to the ground who was trying to sneak in under the fence!
;)
(Actually a very nice vendor who was just joking around with some of our "security" officials!)








When the call came in that "Bertha" was sold,
it was ALL hands on deck!






At this point, she was still on dollys with wheels...



...Then came the heavy part!
I believe i counted 11 guys .
(I hope they all lifted with their knees & not their backs!! )






...and she was up!



With all the hunks workin together...
BIG BERTHA filled the newly purchased trailer (and then some!)






GREAT JOB, GUYS!
We certainly couldn't do it without you!

Now, here's a tiny peek at what was JunkFest 2013:

Pumpkins galore!...




Junque to treasure...


the colors of fall...

...and the smell of mini donuts in the air!!

 
Gosh, what's not to love!??

Stay tuned.  More pictures to follow.
