Fun Finds for Junk Bonanza...

Junk Bonanza, the big antique, vintage, and re-use show is coming up in September, and my daughter and I went on a treasure hunting day to find some more junk for our space there!  I love this old wood NOTIONS rack!  It will be a great display for some of our Itsy Bits And Pieces and will be for sale, too!  And how about this beautifully faded old hat box?

I love the old roses fabric...

A rusty stamp rack full of vintage stamps will join the vintage office goodies we have...

And an old faucet is always a fun find...

We fell in love with these vintage flashlights...

with their rustic patina...

and we found some glassware to add to the vintage bottles and lab glass we are bringing...

Love the etched glass...

These old ladies cloth boots are charming...great chippy white heels...

and this wonderful old three part vanity mirror was a great find, too!

We are always attracted to anything this old cow print!

We're really looking forward to this year's Bonanza- Sept 15, 16, and 17th at Canterbury Park,
Shakopee, Minnesota!  I'm excited to meet some of you there, too!  I'll share more goodies soon!

Until next time...


  1. Oh how I wish I could be there!! You have some amazing stuff to take. I'd be spending all of my time in your booth!! I love everything you pictured today.
    Have fun getting ready for the event. Maybe I can convince Bruce we need to take a road trip to Minnesota.
    Have a great day.

  2. I wish I could come! Oh my gosh what amazing treasures and I can only imagine what the event will look like! Can't wait to see pics from that.
