junk bonanza

Just got home from Junk Bonanza, the biggest+best flea market in Minnesota. {For the locals: the show is open Fri 9/17 & Sat 9/18 too, so there's still time for you to check it out!}

What a spread! The place is filled with so much vintage loveliness, it's hard to take it all in. For extra pairs of eyes, I brought my mom & sis-in-law for the first time...Graham and I went last year, and knew what a challenge it would be to navigate the booths and crowd with a stroller. Somehow I think we came out ahead. Here are a few photos I brought home (among other treasures...more on that soon!)
G crashed in his stroller. Oh how I love a good shopping companion!

Note: Please comment if you know the names of any of these vendors. Sorry I have no credits!

Jealous. I'm living vicariously through you for JB this year...a massive mound of homework has cancelled any plans to attend on Saturday!

Can't wait to see what you snagged...it looks like a complete win!

I'm so excited! My mom and I are hitting it up on Saturday and I couldn't go last year so I'm super psyched for this year!

That looks so great! I can't wait to see what you picked up!

Nice photos. I wish I could see the price tags on some of them. I live in the area and can't decide if I want to pay the admission fee. Are they garage sale/thrift store prices or antique store prices. I am looking for vintage kitchen ware and am shocked at some of the prices I am finding.

Lucky you!! I was at the Creative Connection which turned out to be very slow.

EVERYONE was talking though about how amazing JB was. Only wish I could have had time to see it for myself.

Hi,
I was a vendor at Junk Bonanza for the 5th year. Maybe you stopped by and picked some junk out of my "Junk Drawers" for me to design you a necklace. Thanks for boast posting on Junk Bonanza. www.autumnplacearts.com
