Junk Bonanza Fall 2015

Well, the spring Junk Bonanza in Minnesota
is less than a month away.
I plan to attend this year, with some friends.

It got me thinking about my experience
last fall as a vendor!  I'd like to share some
pictures of my items and display.

I sold a mix of greeting cards, created junk & of
course smalls & antiques.

I rented only a table space this round,
since my first time selling with a full
sized booth was so overwhelming!

This AMAZING fan sold.

This goose grate was from an old screen door.
It was a unique item & sold the first day!

The mum bucket & thermos found new homes as well.

The pouring tea pot is still available on my
Etsy shop: MinnesotaJunker
Just in time or "garden season"!

I had one in my garden hanging from
a Shepard's hook over tall phlox 
and it looked amazing.

I changed up my display each day at the show.
Both glass cabinets sold.

I sold the Hopalong Cassidy wallet box (inside the cabinet). 
 The old door knobs went like hot cakes, especially the glass ones.

You can still find some of the large flashcards
and shabby wood pedestals on my Etsy shop too.

Those darling old stroller wheels sold.
That chunky paintbrush is in my Esty shop.

The best part of the whole experience was 
the table next door.  She gave me some good
insight into her marketing.  Call me crazy,
but I even bought a petticoat from her.
She had wonderful scarves, mittens 
and slippers made from old sweaters.

The second best part of being a vendor
was getting to do a walk through each
morning before the show opened.
