Ok!!!!! My friend Sandy and I just got back from our Junkin trip to Junk Bonanza in Minnesota.  We were overwhelmed to say the least at the amount of great stuff and the fun this was.  This was totally worth the 7 hour drive from Chicago.  There were 150 vendors and every single one of them had the best stuff.  I have never been to a show where every single vendor was so fantastic with what they had.  I have posted some of the pictures of a few of the vendors.  I am so going back to this again.  Enjoy the pictures of the Junk Sweetness!!!!!




This beautiful Junker has one cute thing after another in her booth. Great prices and so so many treasures buried in her booth.

Look at this beautiful chandelier hanging in this old chippy gazabo.  Need I say more!!!!! I found alot in her booth to come home with me.

Ok cutest dress form ever converted to a lamp.  My camera did not do justice to this beauty but this booth was so so vintage chippy. She had some of the most beautiful things.  I could have gone broke in her booth!!!!!!
I got this cute queen sign for my office. It looks perfect on my old gate over my desk.   Love it!!!!!

We saw alot of dress forms and manniquins and each one had their own little personality and dress!!!!!

Loved this sign that the Junk continued.  My friend Sandy is to the right. I should have told her to turn around while I took the picture!!!!


Saw some of the cutest flea market bags and totes.

Lots of fall things.



Such wonderful furniture to choose from. I loved this shabby white piece.


This lady made the cutest vendor flea market aprons!

Ok just cute!!!!!




After the first trip to the car!!!!! It was packed with Junk Love Treasures!!!! We were then back for round two!!!!!!

I love this sign it says it all!!!!!
I started to play with some of my new finds from Junk Bonanza. Love the chippy bench and the chenille pumpkins!!!!!


Cute little chippy post that called out to me!!!!!


I got some beautiful vintage treasures for my laundry room that my hubby and I are working on that I can't wait to show you.  The treasures were amazing at Junk Bonanza!!!! Hopefully the laundry room reveal will be soon.

  2. Junk Bonanza looks like a great show!! I was at the Springfield Flea Market Extravaganza and the Vintage Market Place was there. Heard there was around 2000 vendors...and there sure was a lot of great junk to look through. Have a great Sunday.

    1. Hi Cindy This show was amazing but we heard great things about the Springfield show too. We thought maybe we should give that a try next year. We did have a wonderful time up in Minnesota.

  3. What fun, and what wonderful treasures! I just love the post, I have been searching for one just like that, to make a garden angel. Have you seen the precious one Judy did at 20 North Ora, made from a post and a part of a chair? It is the most adorable thing ever, and I just have to find the right post!!

    1. Hi Sandra I am going to check out Judy on 20 North Ora to see what she did with her post. I saw that little chippy thing and had to have it. I was not sure what I would do with it but I needed to grab it and bring it home. That was only 10 bucks so I had to grab it. This show was amazing. I live in the Chicago area and it took us 7 hours straight to get there but totally worth it. I am not sure where you live but if you live anywhere near Minnesota you should try this show. It is great.

    1. OMG!!!Liz it was one cute booth after the next. It was the first show I have gone to where there was not one vendor I did not like. I see why people with shops come here to buy for their shops. It was overwhelming but so much fun. I would go back again now that I kind of figured out how to do this show to get the good JUNK!!!!!!!

  5. You found some great treasures at JB! There's so much to see that it's impossible to see it all. I went with my daughters on Friday, and didn't see many of the items you photographed. But, between the 3 of us, we managed to fill up my daughter's truck. There are a few small things I'm kicking myself for not purchasing, but there's always next April!

    1. Oh my gosh Vickie I was there on Friday too. I wish I would have run into you!!! How fun would that have been. We went to the early bird on Thursday and by 10am most of the booth were cleared out. It was overwhelming how many people come to this. We had a ball. We liked going back on Friday because you could get into the booths better. Thursday was a mad house but that is when they have alot of the good stuff. Some restock for Friday and Saturday so we gave it another try on Friday. It was totally worth the 7 hour drive.

    1. Hi Roxie,
      Looks like you got some pretty sweet little deals yourself this past week end. I love the new chest in your entry way. That is a beautiful piece. Love that little wicker cart too. I did get some cute things from my show that I am using in my mudd room/ laundry room redo that I am working on. I am hoping to get that done soon to post. Thanks for coming by.

  11. Hi Kris, glad you're back. It looks like it was a fantastic flea market...can't wait to see all that you've found, especially the laundry room. BTW, I set up a Yahoo Pipes to collect all the new entries in the blogs that I watch, but I noticed that your titles always come out "null." You probably need to be sure to title your blogs (not sure how you do that!) so that they don't appear as null. There must be a way to title them somehow.

    1. Hi Kathy Thanks for the info on my blog. I am not sure how to do that either. I am so new at this blog stuff. I will look into this. This blogging is such a learning process and I am not so so computer savvy either!!!!

    2. Hi Kathy I went into my settings and my posts are all titled so not sure why your yahoo pipes brings them up as null. Maybe there is something else.
