It’s no secret that Sandpoint is a haven for crafters and their unique creations. Funky Junk, the biggest and longest-running craft and antique show in Idaho, is a perfect opportunity to revel in the community’s creativity.

This Labor Day weekend, Funky Junk will be back for its 10-year anniversary, appropriately celebrating with a plethora of local treasures, unique crafts and other artistic endeavors.

The show will be at the Bonner County Fairgrounds, featuring live music from Bridges Home and delicious food all weekend, and a special tribute to the history of the mining industry in the area.

“I am so excited,” Funky Junk founder and organizer Jennifer Wood said. “I just got done watching the eclipse in southern Idaho, so I’ve been spreading flyers all throughout the state!”

Funky Junk is slated for Saturday, Sept. 2 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 3, from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Entry is $5 for the whole weekend; children 12 and under get in for free.
