The minute I saw the email in my inbox I was intrigued! This was such a great idea and I had to share it with all of you! The ladies at 915 Monmouth in Newport, KY are hosting their annual Junk In The Trunk Event on July 26th from 12pm – 3pm.
What is Junk In The Trunk? Here’s all the details straight from the website!
Junk in the Trunk is an event that allows brides-to-be to purchase items that past brides used at their wedding. Past brides drop off their goods to us, we style the pieces to show the best use of each piece and give ideas of how to incorporate the pieces into a wedding. Our studio transforms into a bridal retail space for one day. Studio members will be on-hand to answer any questions or help choose the perfect pieces for wedding decor.
We’ve doubled our VIP tickets this year and we’ve collected double the goods for our Swag Bags. VIP admission allows you to shop a half an hour early and you have the choice of purchasing a ticket that comes with or without a Swag Bag.
Your job is easy. Let us know what you’re looking for! Email events -at- 915monmouth.com with the items you want to add to your wedding and we can start the hunt for you! We’ll also add you to our mailing list to ensure you’re kept up to date with all the fun new things we have in store for those wanting to get in and buy.
Selling is actually pretty easy, mainly because we do all the work. We’ve announced our drop off days to allow you time to gather the pieces you wish to sell, get them priced and get all the paper work together (We promise it’s minimal. It just helps our transactions the day of the event go smoother and it helps get you paid much quicker). You don’t have to attend Junk in the Trunk at all, though you’re definitely welcome to come shop! In an effort to keep confusion to a minimum, we’ve broken down the process for you as best we can.
Note: The drop off deadline for this year’s even has already passed, so if you have any times that fit their criteria, you might want to hold on to them for the 2015 event.
Tickets are required to attend. VIP with Swag Bag : $30 | VIP without Swag Bag : $15 | General Admission : $5 Contact the 915 Monmouth studio for purchasing information.
The event sounds like so much fun! If you go, leave us a comment and let us know how it was and if you found any great treasures!
