Junk Bonanza

It was a very successful trip to our third Junk Bonanza last weekend.  We renewed many junk friendships and made several more.  We have our deposit in for next year!  If we did not see you there this year mark your calendars for next year.

Getting ready to load trailer #1, we had two
We fenced in part of the booth
The white wooden wheel was bought by a friend in St. Charles so, we hauled it back for them

We had a couple of shoppers trying out an old bed spring to see how sturdy it was

Kay Stalcar was the 'Lucky Friday" winner of a $50 gift certificate in our booth.
Notice we have floor space in the shop/garage when we came home.

Some of the fun at the auction

The fun started early, gathering on the lawn to listen to the music.
The Bandanas played/sang again this year. These three sisters know how to have fun!

The wine for this years event came from local MN/WI wineries.  I hope everyone will make a trip to visit these great wineries this fall.  Cannon River Winery, Danzinger Vineyards, Garvin Heights Vineyards, Salem Glen Winery and Whitewater Wines.  I loved visiting each of them to select the wines we used for the event.   Thank You to each of them!

The' Queen of Junk' was in attendance for the event along with Lani.

Trash to Treasure Charity Auction is over

These are a few of the items on the auction.  Several items were sent to us by bloggers that participated in the junkologie blog contest.   A great big Thank You to Amy who planned the contest and then to all the bloggers that sent items for the auction.   It was fun going to the mail box to see what had arrived each day.   You helped us raise over $3000 for breast cancer research.   Thank YOU!
This chair brought in the largest bid- $275

Items ready for the Trash to Treasure Auction

A little help from Sophie, some craft birdhouses and
an old wooden ladder and into the garden it will go.
This all ready for a bedside table or entry.
A new paint color and new cushions.  Who will have this
on their porch or bedroom.

This old plant holder has been given a new paint job--wait to see what it
looks like with flowers in it for the auction.
 This little rocker had no back rockers, so it has become a shelf.

A very successful Vintage Treasures Market

After a very rainy and stormy Thursday evening without power we were running behind schedule but, this is what it looked like Friday morning.
The vendors are busy setting up and drying off
their wares.

Introducing one of our new vendors Kirsten
of Vintage Chic Designs.  She repurposes jewelry from
old buttons and vintage jewelry

Another new vendors booth, Just PreciousVintage.  She has linens, sewing notions, buttons and lace along with a few quilts and clothes.

In the afternoon the rain started up again and the shoppers were staying close to home so, it gave us an opportunity to have story time with Sue Whitney.  Notice what book she decided to read to us!

After the day is done, it is time to unwind with good conversation and drinks before dinner is served.  
 A toast to all for the hard work and good sales during the day.  We were all pleased.
