Calling all junkers! If you are in the Minneapolis area this upcoming week, a stop at the  Art+Architecture JunkMarket Style (AAJMS) event should be at the top of your agenda!

Our clever friend at Junk Exchange was the closest guess in our mystery item challenge. He was almost right on the money! The contraption above is a bull blinder. It slips over the bull's head to cover his eyes.

The Junk Bonanza Mystery Item...

Pin It

Did anyone correctly identify the mystery item posted a couple weeks ago? Shown in the photo above, here were the brave souls that took a guess at it...

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...
Talk about an uncomfortable bra! Okay, I have no idea, but that was my first thought!

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...
oh my goodness, anita and i are so on the same page! i was going to say a very primitive and painful bra!!

afistfullofweeds* said...
Looks like a primitive BOOTY POP!! A chasity belt comes to mind also!! eewwwww!!

Junk Exchange said...
well, i think it is probably an early pair of horse blinders ... of some sort .. maybe for a donkey ..
