Well, I'm so pleased to say that we have had tons of inquiries in the shop about Junk Bonanza. Since it's next week, I thought I'd do a recap of last year's show. I have a ton of pics to share, some are not of the best quality, but you'll get the idea. We can't make it this year, so PLEASE go for us! If you are from our area (Barrington/Chicago), you must go up one side of the Mississippi, and down the other. It is a beautiful ride!!
I should mention that the displays at Junk Bonanza are amazing! There are over 130 juried junk vendors at the show. So there is a lot to see.
This booth had very cute and clever pieces for sale.
This was my favorite display by far! It is The Round Barn Potting Company. I spent so much time just starring at it. I'm crazy about vintage dress forms, and this booth had plenty.http://www.roundbarnpottingco.com/
This picture is from 2009'. I added it to give you an idea of the set up. The show takes place indoors inside large fair ground buildings.
If you haven't figured it out yet, you "DO" need to go to Junk Bonanza this year! So grab your girlfriends, sister's, mother's, or heck even a wonderful husband, and head north.
