Wow!! Looks like a great time! I would love to do something like that! Although, with having my three kiddos...times like those come few and far between! I love the stuff you got! And how exciting you got to meet another blogger friend! So glad you had fun!


You sure found a lot of goodies to bring home! But better than all of that is the sitting area in your picture. I love the window and the table and chairs are stunning! You certainly have a lovely home.



Wow!!! You did so well -- what a marvellous story -- and wonderful finds!! Brillant!

WOW! Fabulous finds, awesome prices and how lucky that you got to go to the Junk Bonanza ~ I've been reading about it on Kari's blog and thougth how awesome it would be to go. Saw the cute pic of you two on her blog as well!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Sandy :)

Thanks for your posts, you're so sweet! I really enjoyed meeting you and thanks for adding me to your blog. Hopefully I will see you around at other MN craft fairs!



I so envy you girls. What fun. I would have loved that. I read there articles in the magazine.
Everything you got was great, but I do love the wands. By the way you two girls are so cute.
Glad you had such fun. Have fun at your block party.
I'm sure whatever you make will be yummy!
Have a great weekend!


Oh, I just LOVE all of your finds!! And, some of those were quite the bargain! I think that I'm especially in love with the golf bag & the other bag. But, the platters & frog are great too...well, its all great! What a wonderful day you had.


Allison- You had a great day, finding great treasures and making new friends. At the end of the day you kick your heels up and just smile! Can't wait to see the homes for your new finds. Have a great weekend!

I am SOOOOOOO jealous! I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sue and Ki! I wish I could have gone! That sounds like so much fun! I am glad you had such a great time!



I love all of your finds too! So much to look at.... What a fabulous day!

How nice to meet a fellow blogger, as for the golf clubs and riding hats Ali you should have asked me. I have them spilling out of the hall and even lumbering up the garage. He he!


Love the eye candy. Being in VT and 22 plus hours away I am not able to partake in the junk market. But it would be definately up my alley. Thanks for sharing. Just discovered your blog and love it--keep the pictures coming.


What a fun day!! And no, I can't think of anything else that really rivals that!!
Great new treasures!!

Lucky you! I wish I could go to a junk market event! What wonderful items you found! I love the blanket, keys, hand (I have one I am going to mosaic!) and metal frog....

Karin (creativechaos)

I am sooo jealous....but in a good way! :) Looks like a great time. And what fun to meet Kari!


I just love seeing all of the eye candy!! What an attractive blog--it's better than paying $4.95 for decorating magazines!!
How do you use your skeleton keys? Would you have a little blog about that?
Thank you for sharing,


SO jealous of your weekend and your awesome finds!!

I love the plaid blanket, platter, and keys. And I can't wait to see how you displayed the golf bag and riding helmet.
