Bonus SALE this weekend! (Friday 9/29 – Sunday 10/1)
We’re using this weekend’s sale to do a true cleanout as we work to transition our inventory to bar-coded pricing – this means that anything priced with the tan logo sticker we’ve been using for the last 4 years will be 50% off – this means some pretty stellar discounts (especially in the basement and among the clothing racks). 🙂
We also know you guys love treasure hunts, so we made a handy chart (posted in the comments below) that details the different discounts (ranging from 20-75% off). Scroll down and take a quick screen shot for an easy reference while you’re here.
Join Chris Miller, a local Longfellow artist, for a glass-on-glass mosaic demonstration! You will learn how to go from a plain sheet of glass to a unique mosaic design.
Chris will provide a step-by-step how-to on the following techniques:
Creating glass mosaic pieces since 2002, Chris has been hanging windows at Junket since the first year it was in operation. He likes to think of his designs as jewelry for the home.
Drop in to the shop anytime between 12:30-3:30PM on Saturday, October 28 for FREE to see art in the making!
Thanks for checking in on our class offerings! You can find upcoming classes below.
You can check out any paid courses at mkt.com/shopjunket. These classes require advance registration; ticket sales will close 24 hours before the start of each class.
We also offer free drop-in sessions with our Artist-In-Residence, Meg Erke, a couple of times each month. We typically post the details of these classes here, a few weeks in advance. If you’re curious about what’s going on this week or next week or next month (you get the picture), a high level overview of all Junket goings-on can be found on our Events Calendar.
We have a slightly more stringent refund policy for paid class registrations than we do for the stuff we sell at the shop due to the time-constrained impossibility of reselling your unwanted ticket after a class has happened. So- here’s the skinny:
- Ticket sales will be refunded until two weeks prior to class start.
- Equivalent credit toward a future class will be issued for cancellations 1-13 days prior to class.
- No day-of or after-the-fact refunds or credits will be issued for missed classes.
- You are welcome to sell or share your unneeded ticket at any time.
Thanks for helping us make sure these classes are time well spent for all involved!

Creative Journaling w/ Molly Anthony (Tickets: $10)
When the going gets tough, art has a way of helping us reconnect our outside activities with our inner lives. Art is also a powerful metaphor for intentional living — in that if you don’t like what you see, you have the power to change it by taking a new approach. Of course, change isn’t always easy – and it often helps to have ongoing community support as we decide to edit and improve upon both life and art…
Within this spirit, we’re thrilled to announce the launch of a new experimental creative/community/reuse series focused on Creative Journaling. In this series, participants will each start with a book (something with some history and character to it – we’ll have an assortment on hand), and then focus on the creative process of layering materials onto existing pages, deciding what to keep and what becomes background, experimenting with different techniques and ways of playing with the things we have at our disposal – and we’ll do it together.
We’re thrilled to introduce Molly Anthony (find her on Instagram: @mkranthony) as we kick off this series! Molly has been creating visual journals for nearly a dozen years, and she brings not only her personal experience, but also things she’s learned through active participation in an online community of artists with a shared affinity for this particular craft. Molly’s technique is one where literally nothing is wasted (making her a perfect fit with Junket’s intention of not throwing away good stuff).
Molly’s role in this series will be a session on the first Friday of each month, where she’ll share the first steps of her process, offer guidance on staying organized (functionally and thematically) so you can literally get creative on the bus or between coffee shop appointments, and then share an experimental technique or two as all of us begin (or continue) working on our own journals.
