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.

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
