Inspiration Tuesday: Junk Bonanza!

I am super excited! My mom and I are planning to attend this on Saturday:


Junk Bonanza is a huge flea market event held this year at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, MN. It runs this week from Thursday September 17 - Saturday September 19th. I have been wanting to go to this for years and I am super excited to be able to attend the 4th annual event. "Junk Bonanza is the brainchild of Ki Nassauer, author, designer, merchant, junker and co-editor of Flea Market Style, a new home d├ęcor magazine created in partnership with Celebrity Style Editor Matthew Mead." Ki is also the founder of JunkMarket and "co-authored Decorating JunkMarket Style and Junk Beautiful, Room by Room Makeovers; had a regular column in Country Home magazine; made appearances on HGTV’s "Country Style" series and the "TODAY" show; and hundreds of public appearances, nationwide." Source I'm so excited by this that I thought I would show a few projects others have made with "junk."

Check out Kathy's message center made from an old window.

or how about this great teapot lamp?




I thought I'd keep today's post a little shorter as I have several other posts I plan on doing this week. If your anywhere near Minneapolis, MN you should consider going to Junk Bonanza. I'm so excited! Bring on the Junk!
Happy Crafting!

  1. Take me with you! I adore the teapot lamp (but I sorta feel like the shade needs to larger, no?)...

  2. If you can get to Minnesota by Saturday morning, you can sure come with! ;) That shade could be a bit bigger.

  3. Thanks for featuring me on your blog! Perhaps it's the angle of the photograph, but the manufacturer of the lamp shades, which I had custom designed for these lamps, provides a formula for correct proportion. It's more of a guideline than a rule, so I had them make the same black fabric shade in 2 sizes, the smaller of which is shown with the particular lamp featured. The shades are sold separately from the lamps, so the customer is able to select a size to their liking.

    I hope you will check out my blog and Etsy shop to see more of my work! Thanks again - you have a great blog!
