hey ya'll...don't miss the first annual steam punk festival to be held the weekend of february 15-17 in victor, co. more details to follow or click here for postings by victor dream team
the above photo is what's left of a tire rim. the result of my husband hauling an overladen trailer full of steam punk 'fixins' from IN to CO. its sets proudly in my front yard to remind me to always see the possibilities.
at marigold mercantile, 120 s third, we have an infamous 5' tunnel that is full from floor to ceiling with treasures yet unpacked that are certain to thrill any steam punk lover. during the festival, we are going to have 'tunnel diving'. it will work similar to an estate sale... a shopper will be given a number and 10 minutes in the tunnel to fill their vintage striped canvas shopping basket. we'd love to let more than one in at a time, but with shelving down both sides, there's barely 2' of space between.
the junk posse, 106 n fourth, will also be open during the festsival weekend. we have expanded all the way to the back of the building with all things rusty, chippy paint, odd and unusual. you will find everything from metal mining artifacts to vintage fabric to antique books to primitive furniture parts and pieces. all that's needed are wheels turning inside your head!
the olympia hotel, above the junk posse, offers lodging the old fashioned way, if you're a lover of the 'real deal' from the late 1800's...translation, 1 bathroom...down the hall. the rooms have been newly renovated in period style and include some of the original hotel furnishings. maybe we should institute the take a number and 10 minute rule there also!
and when you're hungry, victor has some for the best burgers, pizza and bakeries in the gold camp. we promise you won't go hungry.
so don't miss the excitement...american pickers, eat your hearts out!
