junk bonanza

What a glorious day! The weather was sunny and very warm! I started my day with a stop at Starbucks for my first 'Pumpkin Spice Latte' of the season! Oh- it tastes just like fall!

Then I made a short car trip to the annual Junk Bonanza! This is the first time I have gone to this- and I am so glad I did!

The Junk Bonanza was held at Canterbury Downs race track in Shakopee. It was in 3 buildings with over 100 exhibitors featuring 'antiques,architectural salvage, hand crafted accessories, recycled and vintage items, along with good old junk.'

There were so many great things to look at and I finally decided on an old fan that I thought would look perfect in my guest bedroom.

I found a booth that was selling some vintage cameras and I bought one of these- although I am not exactly sure what or where I am going to put it- I just new I had to have it. =0)

And I bought a cookbook. Serena of the Farm Chicks (I love this blog) was signing the cookbook at the Bonanza yesterday- but I bought one today anyway because I have been eyeing it for a long time and I just love cookbooks!

Definitely a fun day and I can't wait for next year's Junk Bonanza!!

I love Pumpkin Sprice Lattes! I'd have loved wandering around this place! Actually, I've been looking for a white and red quilt exactly like the one in your first picture!

Oh, I love OLD STUFF! My house has lots of it inside... they make such great decorations, but I'm a COUNTRY GIRL anyway. =0)
