Shawnee Springs inviting public out for Gypsy Junk Fest

| June 15, 2016

COSHOCTON – If you enjoy hunting for antiques or looking for rustic, retro items then you won’t want to miss the Gypsy Junk Fest.

The event will be held from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, June 18, at Shawnee Springs, a former winery located at 20093 County Road 6.

“Me and Betty (Gwinn Hall) like to look at antiques and retro stuff and have gone to similar barn sale events likes this,” said Rachel Hall from Shawnee Springs. “We just thought we have the space out here to do this ourselves.”

Several vendors are scheduled to be at the Gypsy Junk Fest including Rust Décor, who Rachel said features top of the line repurposed items. She will be there offering her pottery for sale and Finn’s Fickle Goods will be there with handmade items that range from dream catchers to purses.

“We are going to have a real eclectic mix of stuff in our intimate rustic setting,” Rachel said.

They are hoping for about 15 vendors and anyone interested in getting more details on being part of the event can visit the Gypsy Junk Fest event page on Facebook.

“We don’t want any direct sales, but welcome people with handmade, antique, rustic or repurposed items,” Rachel said.

Admission to the Gypsy Junk Fest is $10, which includes parking, two refreshment tickets and the yoga/ summer solstice bonfire with Cindy Kostecki from Crowtown Yoga.

Proceeds from the event will help with the upkeep of the facilities at Shawnee Springs, which the Gypsy Junk Fest is giving the Halls the chance to showcase what they have available only five minutes outside of town.

“You can still rent Shawnee Springs for weddings, showers or even meetings,” Rachel said.

They hope to make the Gypsy Junk Fest an annual event and possibly even have a second one in the fall around harvest time.

“Our grapes are usually ready by September and they are very flavorful,” Rachel said. “They make awesome jelly.”
