Junk Bonanza Time Machine

Yes, I'm still in wonder over the dream that Junk Bonanza in Minnesota was. It's been a week, and it's still on my mind, so I thought I'd share a few (okay, a lot) of pictures before I move on. I know one cannot dwell in the past, but that show was so incredible. It was really, really fun to get to be a shopper in a new city, a new state, a new place full of new vendors. Not to mention new (old) junk! It brought back good memories of the first time I walked into The Farm Chicks show; I got that same energizing, creative, wide eyed feeling all over again. It's good to shake up the junking juices. That's what the Junk Bonanza did for me, it made me re-fall in love with the whole junking experience anew. Thanks mom, for being my faithful shopping partner in crime. We made off good. Can't wait to go back next to rent that U-haul girls!!


  1. I know that feeling! I got it the first time I entered The Farm Chick Show 3 years ago and every year after. Maybe someday I can go to Junk Bonanza.
    Thanks for the great pictures.

  4. I just have to crack up over those Fisher Price people necklaces! I played with those same people when I was a girl. I still have them and they are mixed in with the kid's toys. The new ones they make are sooo big now compared to the cool vintage ones.
    I HAVE to go to this next year!
