Back from Minnesota and Finally back to the Blog



We are back and after a month back home, I think we finally feel energized again.

We had Vintage Market and then 2 days later, left for Junk Bonanza in Minnesota. We filled a 16 ft trailer and hauled our shabby finds to this amazing show. It was a lot of work, but we had a lot of fun and met a lot of great women who had some really fabulous stuff. We definitely can't wait to go back next and shop and really see the great city of Minneapolis.

I know you want to see pictures, so here we go

The first pics are of our space. As you can tell we did a Gray, white, & black theme for this show. It went over very well, Everyone gave us high compliments on our space, including Ki.
Thanks, Ki! we appreciate you letting us be a part of this wonderful show and it was great to meet you and all the Minnesota chicks.

One thing we learned, is that anything galvanized is in!











We met some great ladies. This is Dawn and she was selling like crazy. She had great stuff at a great price, so of course, I had to buy some things from her:) Her store is called store-house in Blue Earth, MN.



Julie and Brenda from JB Knacker. What great girls. We loved their space. You have to check out their store. And, they are from Iowa.



Some other great spaces! We were in awe of all the fabulous stuff! We want to, have to, go back and shop next year!


WHAT A GREAT SPACE AND AMAZING FINDS!






Wow, Hunt and Gather! They had some fabulous stuff and a huge space.




I cannot remember who this was, but she had these amazing doors and entry way with these amazing hanging baskets. LOVED IT!




We also met the most awesome girls, and I am so sad I don't have pics. But you can go to their blog and read and see all about them the Iowa Junk Gypsies. Anita needs to forget junking and go into stand up comedy. She had us rolling at dinner one night!

Also, A new magazine is the works Flea Market Style and it looks very exciting. Can't wait for the first issue and we also had the pleasure of meeting Heather Bullard, you have to check out her blog and website too!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!

It was so nice to meet some fellow "southerners" at the Bonanza. Hope you're well rested and good luck at your next show! Brenda

I really enjoyed meeting you gals and loved your booth as well as JB Knackers. Fun, fun, fun.
I bought the wonderful pie crust mirror from you and used it in my booth area for customers to use while trying on my jewelry. It was a hit and a lot of people wanted to buy it, but I didn't sell. It is now in my studio at home. Love it!

We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull, Some have weird names , and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.............................................
