Junk Bonanza...

...SO worth it! I had never been, but am already counting the days until next year's show!!

Yes, you may be thinking...a fashionista loving JUNK??!! But yes..this junk is "high-quality" (just like "premium" denim,right?), and perhaps more on the antique and hand-made scale, which is hard not to love! Who doesn't love purchasing a handmade necklace that you know no one else will ever have but you?!! That couldn't get any better!

And WOW...what an amazing selection of FABULOUS things.... from jewelry, to furniture, to hand-painted Halloween pieces, to vintage suitcases, and purses made from books...there is definitely something for everyone here!!

Tamara, of Sheer Addiction, was there--with a fabulous booth, of course, showcasing all of her wonderful jewelry!! SO in LOVE(still)!

There were ties made into belts (done that myself and love), woolly knit hats, make your own jewelry booths, typewriter key jewelry(seen in several booths), golf club coat hooks, metal pumpkins and critters for your lawn or garden...the list goes on!

I came home with this AMAZING vintage vanity (from The Vintage Pixie)....I have been searching for one for a long time, and this one was beautiful, at at an irresistible price!! I'm SO excited to put my own things on it and use it! Now to just find the perfect bench to accompany it...

The JUNK BONANZA has it's own blog, with more pictures and fun posts from other visitors--check it out here! As I just can't seem to say enough great things nor list all that there was to see....and you MUST put it on your calendar for next year!!

The dates for NEXT YEAR are: SEPTEMBER 15-17, 2011 (and I'm assuming it will be at Canterbury Park again)...I will keep you posted next fall when the dates roll around again!! I will be there!

Meanwhile, check out the Junk Bonanza website for more goods....you can even find links to those who had booths. They often sell their goods online and/or on Etsy!! Happy Junking!
