A Visit to Junket: Tossed and Found!


Have you visited Junket: Tossed & Found, yet? (That's shop dog, Nellie, keeping watch for happy junkers!)
 
The Minneapolis junking store, founded by Julie Kearns -- "founder and finder" -- is a treasure trove of objects!
It's also home to Junk Bonanza vendors Becky of Eclectic 887 and Jenni of A Vintage Parcel, shown here enjoying themselves at the Fall 2014 Junk Bonanza!
Treasures abound!
 
Cups hang on the wall for using -- and buying!
 Julie makes sure there is plenty of recycling available!
Even pencils are sold singly. As Julie says, "Why should you have to buy a pack of 10 when you only need one?" We love how she thinks! 
 There is all matter of stuff to be found on two floors, and through the shop's online site.
 Lots of local artwork there, too, by artisans who use recycled materials.
Parcheesi, anyone?! 
Plenty of retro...
 ...smalls and accessories, too.
 Diggers will be rewarded...
 ... and the store makes it easy for shoppers to carry small finds!
 Julie junks using this vintage pickup!
What a gas!
Drive on over to Junket at 4049 Minnehaha Ave. in Minneapolis! You'll love the vibe!

The Porch & Atelier returns as Silver Partner for Spring 2015!

The Junk Bonanza is pleased to welcome The Porch & Atelier back to the Spring 2015 Bonanza as a Silver Partner!
Owner Teresa Dejarlais -- snapped at the just-completed Fall show, flanked by her sister, Jeanne, and son, Adam is a returning partner! She stepped up to the plate during the Spring 2014 show as the Bonanza's first vendor to also underwrite the show!
Teresa said the experience has been great for The Porch & Atelier, her occasional sale and French-themed store in Buffalo, MN. She said she is pondering partnering each Spring -- and encourages other vendors to consider the benefits!
We are thrilled to have Teresa back on board! Merci! Watch this space; we'll be sharing more about Teresa and her business prior to the next show, April 16-18!

Junk Bonanza Peeps: Part 2!

We love how the Junk Bonanza brings together friends -- whether they are gal-pals uniting for an outing, or even vendors who see each other but a few times a year. We love that the JB is a great get-together for friends and families!
 Here are some snaps we wanted to share! Do you have some peeps pictures? Send them to us in a private message to the JB Facebook page!
We'll share them! 
Friends in line!
These gals road-tripped from Rolla, MO, but stopped at the Spam Museum in Austin, MN, on their way! 
On the way out with great purchases...
...and more great purchases!
Bonanza was the place for smiles!
(Coffee, too!)
More fab pix to come!
Vive le Junk Bonanza!
