Join us for the Prairies Sisters Party!

Hey Everyone! Station 8 is going to be selling at the First Annual Prairie Sisters Party in Missoula!
Who isn't ready for a Party! Especially one with junk, and repurposed and vintage and food and held in an old Barn?????

Saturday, September 17th from 9 Am at the Missoula County Fairgrounds is the place you'll want to be!
We are bringing a trailer load of good junk, good vintage, architectural salvage and more!

We figure if we can be a Farm Chick, then we can become a Prairie Sister, right here in Montana!
Join Rachel and me and stop by and say hello!

all the Best,
Prairie Sisters in training

Gypsy Joy arrives at Station 8!

We like change here at Station 8. We like new "old" stuff. We like to be fresh and fun!
So wait until you see what is soon to be a "new release!"

We're calling our new look "Gypsy". Think of bold colors, velvets, romantic, nomadic styles.

Of course, no gypsy look would be complete without chippy turquoise paint.

And what gypsy would be without her bright, patchwork, kaleidoscope of colors?

So, come in for a preview of this Gypsy styling.

My gypsy genius, Rachel, will be starting the new vignette on Wednesday Aug. 31!

I can't wait to see it!

All the best,

Gypsy Rachel & Colette

Back from Junking!

We are back everyone! We pulled in with the loaded trailer late last night after 3 days of intense Junking!
You won't believe what we found, and the trailer will be unloaded by next week!
So here is a very sneak peek into the trailer as we are loading it up.You'll see a bit of aqua, a bit of industrial, a bit of jewel tones to tempt you.
We'' be putting new stuff out daily, so stop in when you can, watch for our email announcing our fresh finds and we'll see you soon!
All the best,

Colette & Rachel

New things make me smile!

Let me just start off by saying new things make me smile, therefore I smile alot around here!!!
Of course you all know about our buying trips where we go out on the road (smiling of course), and search the countryside to bring back the bestest, most fun items we can find to fill the store with. This is one of those most fun items we just had to have, and we liked it so much we bought two! We were told that they came out of a lawyers office. I envisioned them as a kitchen island with a stainless steel top. What do you think? We would love to hear your ideas! And if you love it as much as we do you better hurry on in and snag it because I'm sure they won't last!

Oh yeah our next trip is next week so be sure to come in and see what we find next!

All the Bestest :)

Garden time!

How cute is this old aqua cart, with a vintage window on top? Betsy just remerchandised our patio and it is adorable!

I love these old aqua garden pieces that can be repurposed! This one is in a cute old wheelbarrow to show it off better!

And aren't old chairs fun in the yard? Paint this one a fun bright summer color and put your freshly cut posies in the bottles for instant chic!
Summer weather is here so get out and enjoy it!!
all the best,
