Turns out there's this chic market filled to the brim with vintage goods called Junk Bonanza that was being held just a half hour from St. Paul the same weekend I was attending The Creative Connection. Lucky for me, the lovely Leigh Standley had extra room in her van for me to tag along for this treasure hunt.
We bought the early bird tickets to avoid the crazy crowds & score the best finds.
I love the repurposing of this seat spring.
So many different collections of all kinds and displayed so creatively too! It was hard not to indulge knowing I was limited to a suitcase.
Michelle scored a sweet letter A to pay homeage to her last name - Allen
Leigh & Michelle were capturing images with their snazzy SLR cameras. I'm very tempted to add one around my neck, but for now this slim point & shoot will do.
Slides for lampshades... bike seats for necklace displays ---- love clever repurposing & reinventing
Seriously... there was something for everyone.
Here's a few goodies that came home with us. I must say... I'm tempted to drive down next year -but that could be very, very dangerous ;-)
Stay tuned for more fun from my trip to the twin cites.
