The Junk Bonanza was definitely the trip. Fantastic stuff, great vendors and really really reasonable prices. 3 rooms filled with unique collectibles, refurbished furniture and clever clever ways to use JUNK.
I bought the early bird pass for $20 a few months ago. I figured if I was driving 4 hours to go to a flea market, I should get there early. Such I good idea! Not only did I do 90 % of my shopping in those two hours, I got to chat with the vendors, take more time with my decisions and stay much cooler. Besides the fact it got a little warm after the doors opened to the public, about 500 more people also entered the shopping mix. Well worth it...and I got an awesome gift bag for coming early too.
I came home not only with some great finds (this jungle gym horsie being my fav) I also met some really inspiring industry folks at the blog party. Thank you Serena ,Margo ,Matthew, Nancy, Linda and of course Ki. The event was fabulous and I will see you all again next year!
If you are in the Twin Cities area...you still can cash in. The event goes thru Saturday.
