Junk Bonanza...Rockin' Shakopee!

'Early birds' on opening day waiting to get in
 Wow.  What an amazing show. Ki &  her terrific staff know how to throw a show! We loved our location this year, in the entrance tent. It was light, traffic couldn't miss us and the 'neighbors' were so fun!  We were near Janis of Dime Store Vintage and Lori from Round Barn Potting Company. (I've been following her for-ever; it was great to finally meet!)  These gals are the best!  On the other side were Marge & her hubby from Hahler Windmill Antiques.  Across the way were Cindy and Michelle from Iris and Ivy, rockin' the ruffles they added to their Junk Bonanza t-shirts. Cute!  I'm ashamed to say that I don't have photos of any of this, or any of the other amazing vendors that filled Canterbury Park.  I barely managed to snap some blurry pics of our space;  most are from day three, when loads of stuff was gone.

"Miss Fruit of the Loom" appeared with Ki on a local TV spot on opening morning.  She went home with a happy collector later that day.
Meeting Teresa from The Porch & Atelier was a special moment - love her stuff!
Linda and Liana from Itsy Bits & Pieces came by and I'm so bummed that we didn't get a photo. They have the best goodies. We missed meeting last year; I'm so glad we finally connected.  We saw so many other great folks and I'm sure to miss a lot if I name names, but I'm gonna toss out a few that come to mind anyway.  Texas was in the house all three days...Margo is a field editor for Flea Market Style magazine and a junker extraodanaire. Check out her blog here.   Kari from Meadowview farm has a barn sale coming up; would love to go if we weren't elsewhere that weekend.  We saw Terri who we see regularly at Elkhorn, Kim from Antiques Iowa and the cutest Mother/D-I-L pair, Lisa and Sara from Junque Factory.  Laura from B&B's Nest was an early bird - (who would have guessed?)
I know I'm missing so many of you that took the time to say 'hi'...I truly want to thank each of you that shopped our booth...you're the best!


  1. I was an early bird shopper. This was my first year. I stopped by and introduced myself to you and was sorry to see your chicken (Barred Rocks) picture was sold already!! Bummer, however, good for you! This show was awesome and I posted pictures and stuff about it too. Blessings from Ringle, WI

  2. Your booth was swarming with people all day and I'm so sorry I didn't get a chance to shop it :-( I owe you :-) And I see my chair is still in your possession. Good luck this weekend if I don't see you there! Cheers!

  3. See Jacky, I knew I'd forget...I do remember chatting with you! I'm hoping my mushy brain will recover soon! Thanks for coming by!

  4. What an awesome booth you had here...filled with goodies...if only I was closer...I would have been there! Please let me know if you ever come to a show in the south.


  5. You two are always fun to visit with. Glad I got to see you and take home a few goodies this year.

    See you next year. Drop me a note if you come to the Round Top/Warrenton shows.


  6. So wonderful to meet you -- and love my feed sack bag!! Thanks for the note on my blog...and yes, I do sell in Hixton: booth & case.

  7. It was SO fun meeting you and your booth was full of AWESOME goodies!!

  8. SO nice to finally meet you, too, Jan! I love everything I found (pair of tole lamps with awesome oval wreath finials, old brass flourishes, cherub statue, and a French manuscript - which my daughter adores!) in your wonderful, FULL setup - so much to browse, and alot of fun. Can't wait until next time!
