Junk Bonanza (Part II).. Eye Candy

Sound the horns!  The doors have opened and we are in for a treat of a lifetime!! Hmmm.... do I head for the left side of the building or do I go right?
I chose to go right and had my camera ready to show you what delights were
in store for you!!  With that said, I am just going to let the photos do the 
talking for me.  Just sit back and enjoy the views!!!

Did someone say there was a party going on?
This rooster had flown the coup by the time I went around the second time
I heard their sweet, angelic voices calling me even over the roar of the crowd
The over-turned tart tin used as a cake stand... the baseball leather cuff with bling accent
I didn't notice the satchel until I saw this photo!  Hmm.. wonder what they were asking for it?
Is that altar not just breathtaking? Great display!
Love silver pieces... think of its use at Christmastime!
For all of you who have a mannequin, try making a skirt from book pages
Here's a closer view.. love the mass of pearls around the neck.  She's my kind of girl!
Calling all doll head aficionados 
More religious items
To die for!
Charming little slips embellished with vintage linens
Raise your hand if you prefer a steers head mounted on your wall rather than a mundane deer head!
By now I have only had mini donuts to eat.... my eyes had scanned every 
nook and cranny .... and my head was spinning around and around! Time
to take a break and get one of those Bloody Mary's the announcer had 
mentioned over the speakers!  Next year?  I most definitely will take advantage
of staying another day.  Or maybe three!  Hey.... do you want to join me???


  1. What fun! I am most drawn to the photo with the vintage coffee tins and stack of white bowls behind the singing nuns.

    :) Hope

    1. I love stoneware, too! It seems to be harder and harder to find them, though. Darn! Martha Stewart got us all hooked on them!

  2. Kadee,

    It looks like you had a marvelous time at Junk Bonanza!!! Cindy & Karen Valentine went last year & had a blast! Will you be at Kim's Winter Wonderland Event? Would love to see you there! Have a great week! HUGS!

    1. Hi, Charlene! No, I won't be at Kim's event although after being in CA with Shawn and seeing other friends there, I am hankering to go! In November, I will be at Spellbound and that's the reason why I can't justify turning around in several weeks and returning. I am sure going to miss all of you!!

  3. Wowser. I would be in such heaven at the junk bonanza. Amazing. I somehow inherited a singing nuns music box like the one you picture here. My parents received them as a wedding gift (and we are not Catholic). We always put them out at Christmas. Mine are gold and I just love them.

    1. Jenny, I'm right there with you! I'm not catholic but I sure do love all their religious artifacts! By the way, I am heading over to your blog sometime today. I have been soooo remiss on getting around to all my favorite blogs, what with all the traveling and such. Can't wait to read what you've been up to!! And thanks for dropping by!

  4. I would have gone crazy in there, I certainly see why your head was spinning. So many interesting and fun displays. I love that mannequin with the book page skirt. How clever is that? Thanks for sharing your adventure.

  5. Ummmm, yes, PLEASE!!! I would join you in a heart beat. I wish i lived closer...
