Wowzers! This was one heck of a sale. I had no idea what I was in for. Like I said, wowzers!
Started seven years ago, The Country Junk Sale is held on a farm in Monticello, Minnesota, and this, there fall sale, had some truly amazing, one of a kind finds. Don't know why I hadn't heard of it before. Guess it was a well kept secret. Where have I been? Who knows. And unfortunately, for this sale, I didn't get there early enough, and as they say, the early bird gets the worm, or in this case "junk". By the time I got there, a lot had already been sold. Bummer! Thankfully, I still was able to snatch up a few cool things, and take some fun pictures.
Besides junk they sold pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks and apples. They also raise chickens, so there were a lot of chickens, and a lot of crowing going on. Though the cold and the rain were a bit of a hindrance, I was glad a ventured out. But next time, I'll be sure to get there early!
Loved the huge cupola!
Susan (also a dealer at Second Hand Rose) looks like one happy customer!
I was lucky to snatch up the smaller cupola.
The owner of this great sale. Oops . . . I can't remember his name. My bad!
They had a wide selection of apples. Mmmmm good!
They even had exotic pumpkins. Blue pumpkins are my favorite!
I loved all the chickens. They fascinated me, but they sure were noisy!
Looky who I ran into! It's Krista and Dana of Snowman Hill. Fellow JUNKMARKETstyle members! They came all the way from Duluth, MN.
I also ran into Laurel (Chipping Charm) and Gretchen (Mimitorias Designs), who are also fellow JUNKMARKETstyle members.
The Country Junk Sale is held twice a year, once in the Spring and once in the Fall. It is located at 9650 Harding Avenue, Monticello, MN. Stay tune to my blog for info on the spring sale.
