I’ve known about this event for years and always wanted to attend. I finally made it this year! My friend Miley and Kelly went last year and raved about it, so that just confirmed for me that I had to go! As I wrote Monday, we hooked the trailer up to the F150 and headed down the road. We left a day earlier than we originally planned, so we didn’t have hotel reservations. The place we stayed only had a smoking room with double beds, so that is what we took. Yikes. Miley and I were checking for bedbugs. We must watch too much TV. We only slept for 3 hours and were up and on our way to the show, so there was no harm done.
All three of us went into this adventure well prepared. We not only had a truck and a trailer to make getting things home easier, we also had notebooks with lists of what we were looking for and measurements of all the key spaces in our homes. It was honestly the best way to shop. I usually go in with a vague idea or no idea at all and then I just buy whatever and some things end up in storage. Not so this time! My kitchen piece is already in place. I don’t have it the way I want it yet, but since I enjoy that part so much, I am in no rush.
The photo above and following were all taken at the Junk Bonanza in Daffadowndilly booth. They are from Nebraska! Not close to me, but in the same state at least! Such nice people.
Her last post is about the Bachman house, which we toured also. I have photos to share too…another day.
Whenever I go to shows or flea markets, I have this weird half lazy, half shy thing about taking photos, so I rarely take many. I’m so glad I took these and the ones I took at Bachman House. That place was SO inspiring! I’m not sure how long it’s open, but if you live in the Minneapolis area, it’s totally worth the $5 admission. Go, you’ll be glad you did.
I hope you are having a wonderful day. God bless!
