Things are getting a little SPOOKY here at the shop! No, it's not because Colette is on vacation and left me in charge (well not entirely)...

Colette has gotten into the spirit of things, and knowing that I love all things Spooky, brought me these lovely bleached out old bones to play with! I think they are perfect for a porch.

She even let me play with cob webs this year! I'm a happy girl!

It was a dark and stormy night....

Do not panic ladies! It's not real, but it looks real! So I couldn't help but add a few bugs from the collection of bug magnets that Flower Frog (one of our lovely vendors) brought in.

So if your looking to Spook up your Fall, come in and see me I would love to help!

All the Best,

Rachel & Colette

Prairie Sisters party!

The Party was amazing! Did you get to go to it? On Saturday, it was a one day Market in Missoula, at the fairgrounds. A junkin, vintage show complete with food, old cars and trucks, airstreams and such for the guys to enjoy while the women SHOPPED!!

Station 8 was there! We came, we saw, we sold, we had a blast with Laura & Molly--the Prairie Sisters! They put on the nicest show I have been to here in Montana, and it was huge! The turnout was over 1600 people in attendance, so it is going to just keep getting bigger and better, and will be a MUST GO TO destination!

Rachel was looking very gypsy in her velvet combo and was selling everything we brought!! It was crazy! I kept replenishing, remerchandising and trying to keep stuff up off the floor, as Rachel sold the trunks, chests, desks, tables, chairs, benches,bed, and more!
Everytime I looked, more had sold and she just kept me running, delivering and restocking!

We made lots of new friends...here's a few of them! This is the owner of Diggs!

And she had the most amazing lampshade that she made for this cool floor lamp! Way cute! (and I forget her name...) But I'll remember her face!

And we were in the coolest old barn--what a perfect setting and we had perfect autumn weather!

And some of the old vehicles that the guys were all drooling over...This one belongs to my friends Janie and Rob!

And of course, the crowds just kept pouring in all day long.

So what did we bring back from the show??
You'll have to come into Station 8 and see all our new goodies we BOUGHT!!!!

All the best,
Colette & Rachel

The best Labor Day weekend!

So it seems that the theme for this year's Labor day weekend getaway was "sitting".

(yes, those chairs you see are going to make an appearance in the shop real soon!)

I sat on the bench in the morning,and afternoon, and in the evening.....
I sat on the fence watching the cows, the sky, the dogs....

Hubby sat on the deck, reading, playing with the dogs and, snoozing......(oops I wasn't supposed to tell!)

What a great time we had!

But it wasn't all just sitting. We walked, we ate, we slept in, we drove, and of course we junked!

Isn't it just lovely to have a long weekend!

Autumn is here and it's the best season as far as I'm concerned. Warm days, cool nights, and September just transitions from summer to fall with the crispness in the air that I thrive on!

And the change of season means we can change decor on the porch! Yippee! Here's to a happy and long warm September!

All the best,
