While at The Creative Connection Event, a few of us girls decided to channel our inner delinquents and ditch one our classes (shame on me) to go see the Junk Bonanza. How could I not? I had heard so much about it, read the magazine, read the blog.... I had to jump on the opportunity!
It was not exactly what I was expecting... but so wonderful anyway! I had a vision in my head that it was... well.... A JUNK Bonanza! Similar I suppose to flea markets I had been to in Ca. where there were just tables full of great junk and fabulous finds.
Instead, I found beautiful displays full of the most wonderful vintage goodies. It was like having hundreds of beautiful shops all in one place.
The white pumpkins were out in abundance, and I loved them all. They added such a wonderful fall effect. I love them much more than the orange ones.
There was tons of rusty iron of all kinds...
Something about this framed eye chart I found really cool....
Chandeliers and petticoats... what girl doesn't love that???
I was feeling strangely at home in this booth...Could it be the steer scull on the table?? LOL!
There were a couple of vendors selling art of this type. I really like it. It has a wonderful combination of vintage and contemporary style. I'm thinking a canvas and some paint might be on my shopping list....
This sign sums up how I feel perfectly. I truly hope that this decorating movement never goes out of fashion. I love the connection to the past, the feelings of warmth and peace that I feel when surrounded by it all. It's a good thing I only had limited space in my suitcase to bring goodies home or I would be in poor house (and the dog house)!!!
