For those of you who don't know
about the Junk Bonanza,
it is a three day event
held every September in Shakopee, Minnesota
at the Canterbury Race Track.
There are over 130 jury selected vendors
selling antiques and vintage items,
as well as one-of-a-kind and
artisan re-purposed pieces.
It's not your typical antique market,
specializing in a casual
funky junky style of collectibles.
Take a look and you will see what I mean!
The booth displays are something else.
