Junk Bonanza for a Funky Junk Girl
Oh Junk Bonanza, how do I love thee...let me count the ways...
1/Lots and lots of beautiful and fun junk from the Midwest. See pics above.(Translated: new junk for me, a west coast junking girl.)
2/Mini Donuts in a paper bag. What could go better with junking?
3/Friendly Midwest vendors with awesome midwest accents. I love accents.
4/Junk Revolution Store...I love merchandise!!! I wore my "This ain't my first rodeo PINK shirt today and Mark is getting a Junk Hunk shirt as a prize when I get home; and I picked up a special prize for my biz. partner in junking, Jennifer!
5/Incredible prices!! These are Funky Junk-like prices...we saw many, many large pieces we cried over and that we would have bought and carted home had we been many, many miles closer to home. (1,166 miles closer to be exact. Thanks Christy!!)
6/Found: bins and bins of ephemera pieces to go through; a dream for me!
7/Letters and numbers and punctuation oh yes!!!! Of all shapes and sizes!!
8/Vintage trailers greeting us and setting the mood.
9/Meeting Ki Nassauer and re-meeting Heather Bullard. These ladies are the real deal; talented, energetic, inspiring.
10/Getting to shop it with my favorite fellow junker, my mom. What a dream!!
And this was all in a few lovely hours the first day...more on my second visit later...yes, I couldn't stay away!
loving the fun junk in Minnesota,
