junk bonanza 2016…

junk1another year, another junk journey to junk bonanza.  mario, paula, richele and i met up at junk bonanza in minneapolis last week for a day of junkin’.  we arrived early in the morning ready to seek out new treasures for booth props, vintage ephemera for product ideas, and the opportunity to be inspired.  junk bonanza is always filled with lots of amazing things, great displays, and an eclectic assortment of vintage goodness…

the thing about junkin’ – you just never know what you’re going to find and here’s a gathering of what we brought back in our suitcases: enamel coffee pots, a globe, vintage clock, rusty clip stand, old architecture pieces, books, and lots of colorful ephemera…

my favorite find (there’s always one) was this chippy tattered secretary desk.  even though this clearly wouldn’t fit in our suitcase didn’t mean i had to leave it behind, especially when mario is involved, he’s always up for a challenge.  if you follow us on social media you may have seen the video showing the behind the scenes of mario’s packing brilliance.  with a couple of boxes from home depot and a roll of plastic wrap, this little beauty was ready for it’s journey to arizona – can’t wait to get it…
