Junk Bonanza & Flea Market Style at Oronoco Gold Rush 2012

Pin It


Ki Nassauer (of Junk Bonanza and Flea Market Style Magazine) and a talented group of Junk Bonanza mavens (including Cammie of Daffadowndilly's, Jane of Mustard Moon, and Pam of Pam's Picks) were out in force at Oronoco Gold Rush Days 2012. They had an amazing tent full of junk goodies that were getting snagged up left and right. These photos will give you a sneak peek of what you'll see at Junk Bonanza 2012 this September...

Oronoco Gold Rush Days Vendor Feature

Pin It


I was enamored with this booth at Oronoco Gold Rush Days. Country Cottage Antiques, owned by Greg Hoover, features American carved furniture, western decor, tramp art, primitives, and the unusual.


This globe was amazing...especially once you saw how large it was...


Yes, it really is taller than that desk. It's huge size makes it quite the conversation piece.


The western pillows, using hides, leather, and vintage textiles, were amazing. Love this large-scale mirror framed in tin ceiling tiles, too. Great stuff!

I hope some of you were able to make it to 2012 Oronoco Gold Rush Days! It was day after day of junking fun! Over the next few posts, I'll be featuring some of the vendors and other people I met. This post is all about random junk finds that I thought about bringing home with me...but didn't! I'm sure someone else snapped up these goodies by the end of the show.


Vintage red apple ladder. Love this!


Paint by number painting were found throughout the show.


This drinking fountain had a fun little foot lever.


Industrial carts were everywhere! Selling for as little as $125.


Vintage signs were everywhere, too. Street signs, advertising signs, and signs of all kinds...


Great vintage clothing.


I was in love with these brass ship portholes. I was tempted to bring these home with me.
Super heavy, super industrial, super cool.


Fabulous old money bag from the City of Oshkosh.


How a bout a horse that you don't have to feed?


Or a buck that puts your hubby's 6-pointer to shame?


Old advertising or crate pieces.


Love me some vintage croquet! Reminds me of summers at my grandparents' home...in the old days! :)


This street sign was super old and made of heavy, solid iron.


A totem pole.


A game table with a super cool base that could easily be glammed up with high-gloss black paint.


More Oronoco Gold Rush Days photos coming up!

Did any of you make it to the Oronoco or Rochester Gold Rush Days this year?
