Another year...more junk

This was my third year of going to the JunkMarket's annual Junk Bonanza. I am very lucky to have it held just down the street. It's full of treasures and inspiration. Here's a peek inside... This year Jennifer Murphy accompanied me and here she is oogling over this wee little bird cage that she purchased.



It was fun to run into some blogging pals like Stacy from Buttermilk Basin.



Lots of fall decor.
Some with a Halloween vibe.
Speaking of Halloween, it was fun to meet Country Home magazine's Matthew Mead and have him sign his new Halloween book. The book is full of really fun, fresh ideas.
Good-bye to Junk Bonanza for another year. It was fun!

I just picked up Matthew's Halloween book earlier today. I can't wait to sit down and take it all in. How lucky you are to live to close to the Junk Market Bonanza. We're you a vendor again this year?

sounds like fun, but I would have to look and not shop
My house is overloaded with stuff these days and I feel the need to purge big time.

I met you last year at your booth. I live in Brooklyn Park. My son goes to school just down 55 from the Junk Bonanza site so on Thursday I dropped him off and ooed and awwed over all the junk all day till time to pick him up! Too bad I didn't bump into you there! It was amazing and I'm sad to see it go. Can't wait til next year!

Thank you so much for sharing such wonderful photos of Junk Market. I always swoon over the possibility of going, but it is a 5 hr. drive. Someday. Meanwhile, I enjoyed my little visit via your blog. You are so lucky to live where there are so many excellent estate sales and events to attend!
