Hello Blog Friends.  I am so happy to be home but so sad to leave Junk Bonanza in Minnesota!!!! We girls had a blast on our Junk Love Trip.  I know a lot of you wanted to see pictures from the show so I tried to snap a few in between shopping the treasures!!!!

Get a cup of coffee or ice tea or diet coke there are a lot of pictures.  Sit back and enjoy.


This is all of us as we were waiting to go in for the early bird entrance.  Early Bird at Junk Bonanza is Thursday morning from 8 am to 10 am when it is not open to the public yet.  So the four of us and about 300 of our closest friends!!! got to shop inside before it opened to the public at 10 am.  Starting from left to right.  My friend Sandy, myself, my daughter Jen and her friend Cindy.  No judgements on the hair we were up at 5:30 am and it was hail, wind and snowing all at one time when we arrived.  Not a good hair day!!!!!!

This vendor had so much yummy chippy goodness. I could not stand it.  Her architectural pieces were to die for.  Look at those old Church windows!!!! Oh my!!!!

I was trying to figure out what I could do with this sweet little piece and while I was admiring this lovely treasure someone bought her!!! You have to be quick on the cute ones.

More of the sweet salvage chic booth.  I have to say all her pieces were so amazing.  I was in chippy heaven.

This old organ came out of the same church as the windows.  Amazing and so beautiful.

Had to show you the old church windows one more time. I was in love with those sweet pieces of heaven.

I saw a lot of dress forms all dolled up for the show!!

Sweet vintage wedding dress.

Look at the sweet cowboy boots in white.  Chippy chippy everywhere in this booth.

Cowboy boots done in the sweetest colors.  They were a hot item at the show.

Cute blue boots.


Cute little vintage pillows.

Loved the Junk Love sign.  It certainly was junk love everywhere!!!

Lots of adorable dress forms.
Lot's of oh la la in this booth.

Loved this sweet Junk Office vignette.  Pretty little desk.

Then this vendor had oh my cute stuff galore. Don't you love their booth sign made from an old dodge truck and vintage cute letters.
What a sweet dress form decoupaged from old sheet music and that decoupaged vintage dresser decopaged from old vintage magazines and old sewing patterns.  If you had a cute sewing room wouldn't this be adorable.

Loved all these vintage camera's.

My daughter Jen found a vendor that sold the prettiest belt buckles.  My daughter is not a big fan of necklaces but likes to put some bling on her outfits for work so she thought these cute interchangeable belt buckles would be pretty and fun to wear.
This buckle was made with a lot of vintage jewelry pieces in black and silver and white. Sorry but the lighting when I took the pictures was not so great.  Take my word for it these were really pretty.  



Again hard to tell in the lighting but this one is made with vintage old charm bracelet pieces. It was adorable and so pretty.

I know some of you know I have a wonderful sock monkey named Midge and I love her so.  I had to snap a couple of these cuties I saw at the show. Vintage sock monkey couple.

Little princess sock monkey ready to party. She was super sweet. I almost got her but I knew Midge would be jealous if I brought her home.

Sweet  colorful Rooster hanger.

Another one of my favorite vendors. Chippy sweetness all around in her booth.

This lady just had funky fun stuff.

Yummy vintage whites everywhere.

Loved all her classic vintage treasures.

This vendor had some of the cutest birdhouses.

Another vintage dress form dressed for the occasion.

Loved the sweet perennial sign.

Hope of summer to come!!!!! Red chair too cute.

Lot's of beautiful transfer ware.

You know my love of a sweet bike. This one is a bicycle built for two!!!! How romantic and sweet is this bike.  I had to snap a picture of this cutie.  I did find a different sweet bike at the show to come home with me for the garden.  I can't wait to re love her with some paint and get flowers in her cute basket for out in my garden. Pictures of my new garden bike to come soon. (I hope!!! if this weather ever gets nice enough for flowers!)

Look at those great vintage lockers with the locks!!! Very vintage.  After I took this picture these little beauties were sold.

Some of the most beautiful jewelry at this show.

I was himming and hawing on this cute chair on top of this table and the table and chair set below her.  I really loved them both and before I made up my mind the chair and table and chairs were sold.  You see something you like you must act quickly.  Cute pillow sold too.

Cute totes made of vintage cloth.

I just loved this little collection of vintage chickens and roosters. They were so sweet.

Loved these vintage yellow garden chairs.

After spending the morning at the show we took a ride up to one of my favorite little shops called Ramshackled Treasures.  Yep that's right still snowing in Minnesota during April!!!!!! This shop despite the snow is as cute inside as outside.  Look at those cute vintage blue doors made into a gazabo. Super Sweet!!!!!

Cute inviting porch.  Even with the snow it was welcoming and adorable.  Found some cute treasures in this shop to take home.

We found the cutest little vintage 50's diner on our way up to Minnesota.  It was on the border of Wisconsin before we crossed into Minnesota.  This vintage 50's diner had the best food.  We had be bop hamburgers and Peggy Sue patty melts with the best fried cheese curds.  Yumtastic!!! Of course we had to have cheese curds we were in Wisconsin. I think it may even be a law you must eat cheese when in Wisconsin!!!!!

Well my blog friends I know this was a long post so thanks for hanging in there.  We had such a great time.  Great food, great company to travel with and great junk treasures.  Life was good these past three days. Despite the weather we had a fantastic trip.
Hope your week was good.
