Triumphant Return

About a year ago (maybe more or less, I honestly can’t remember) my sister and I moved our Junque Rethunque booth from the cavernous back side of the flea market to a bright, sunny, corner spot with a window.  We finally put our spin on the booth adding letters to spell out “JUNQUE”.  We were quite proud with how it looked.  The Q was large, gold and stood out amongst the smaller black letters.  It did a bit of showing off, winning talent shows and whatnot when we weren’t looking.

The other booths apparently were jealous.  Rumors were started about Q that were simply untrue.  No one invited her to dinner or to parties.  This lifestyle sent her on a downward spiral.

Then she disappeared.  Whether she couldn’t stand the spotlight any longer or someone plotted her demise, we’ll never know.  She never turned up.

The hunt for an new Q was not easy.  Auditions left us with a mediocre crowd of Qs that just didn’t fit the role we needed her to play.  Months went by where our booth was just “JUN UE”.  The other letters did their best to pick up the slack until we found a new Q, but it wasn’t the same around there.

Then, on one unsuspecting Saturday in the back of an overpriced Fort Smith flea market, we found her.  Unappreciated, unloved, and sitting on the floor getting dusty, we knew she was the star we needed.  From the picture above, wouldn’t you agree?

It’s so nice to be Junque Rethunque again… Jun ue Rethunque didn’t have the same ring to it.  Help us celebrate, if you’re local, go check out our booth at the Fayetteville Trading Post – we just added tons of new goodies and you wouldn’t want to miss out… would you?

  1. Oh Erin I LOVE it!!!I can picture what the words looked like, with the letters all the same size, but I think that large Q really puts a great spin on things! And, it's kind of a subliminal message to whoever stole the first one right?! ;P

  2. DOH!!! I am late to the party. Perfect post. Yay!
