Ready For Junk Bonanza!

Well, we are all set up and ready for this year's Junk Bonanza!  At 8 AM tomorrow, the doors open to early bird ticket holders, and it should be a FUN and busy day!  Thought I would share a few projects my husband and I worked on yesterday for the sale!  I had quite a few vintage hem marker stands- I've always loved the look of these, sort of industrial and graphic.  I decided to add some fun junk goodies for some great assemblages!  Wheels in different sizes were bolted onto the stands (using pre-drilled holes) to be used as photo holders...

You know I love to use vintage hangers!  Well, attaching one to the top of the stand is another great looking  display idea!

And a vintage little blackboard with a scrabble tray added, makes a fun message board!  I hope you try making some of these!  I'll be sharing more projects and lots of photos from Junk Bonanza soon!  It is held Sept 15, 16, and 17th at Canterbury Park in Shakopee MN.  Hope to meet some of you there- we are in space 230-231!

Until next time...I'm off for some much needed sleep and an early morning!


  1. I am going on Saturday and canNOT wait!!

  2. Oh Linda! I met you at Junk Bonanza last year. It was one of the best events I have ever attended. I will not be in MN this weekend. I will be here in Oklahoma City watching my senior cheer at the football game. I hope to make it next year. Everyone that sees your booth is so lucky!

  3. Love your ideas for the skirt markers. I have a couple of those and I will be "stealing" your ideas!
