Fun Finds for Junk Bonanza...

Spring Junk Bonanza is coming up quickly (April 18th-20th at Canterbury Park, Shakopee, Minnesota) and I am very busy getting things tagged and ready to go!  I especially enjoy finding all kinds of little vintage goodies for artists and crafters, as well as re-purposed items and home decor!  Thought I'd share some of the itsy bits and pieces I found last week!  Love these letters, numbers, and symbols for projects and crafting...and the wooden bowl was a find, too!

There were letter cubes to add to the big rotating hardware bins we bring...

and some great vintage file divider cards...

Fun books are always great to bring along...

as are vintage clothespins and spools...

How about this pretty double swan planter?  McCoy?

I also had a couple of antique store finds!  Lots of chippy hooks...

and this wonderful vintage sign! 

There's a link at the top of my sidebar for Early Bird ticketsI hope you'll stop by and say hi if you attend!  My daughter Liana and I share spaces 230-231 with our friend Kris of Cottage Dreams!

Until next time... 


  1. Linda, I love to hear about this market every year, lots of great bits and pieces! Wish I was back in Minnesota for it! I love all of the pictures everyone posts can't wait to see!


  2. I am so sad Linda, I won tickets thru WWC and was going to come to see you at Junk Bonanza but my mom is having surgery that week and I will not be able to come now :(

  26. Love your new blog look, Linda! I also really love the McCoy planter, I've never seen one like it. And the hooks are neat, too. Best of luck with your show!

  27. I have to say, my sister and I came very, very close to coming this year. Then, I tried to make it work to go with Amy from Vintage Marketplace...sigh.

    Best of luck at the sale!
