Junkologie Blog Party and Book Signing by Junk Beautiful Outdoor Edition Author Sue Whitney!

Yes! You heard it right! ALVN with Junkologie and WhisperWood Cottage is hosting a blog party at her booth during one of the Midwest's finest shows, Gold Rush Days in downtown Oronoco, Minnesota! I'll be traveling all the way from the Buckeye State along with fellow JUNKMARKET Style contributor, Kathy Stantz, from Sylvia's Vintage Daughter in my trusty Town and Country. We'll take full advantage of the van's Stow n' Go feature to allow room for all the junk we bring back to Ohio. BIG Minnesota junk!

Junk Beautiful Outdoor Edition author, Sue Whitney, will be at ALVN's booth for her book signing along with Kimberly Melamed. You'll also get to trade junk tales with the contributors of JUNKMARKET Style! Good stuff! And best of all, you don't have to be a blogger to enjoy the fun! Any questions? Just ask!

Good Friends - Good Food - Good Junk - Let's Meet!

Hope to see you there!


  1. I'll be there with bell's on! LOL! Can't wait! I'm thinking when we go into Anoka on Thursday, you can stop at my house. Whatcha think?


  2. That's what I was hoping you'd say! Pencil in a tour for us, girl!


  3. Candy,
    Thank you so much for your help! You are a angel! I just wish I was going to be seeing all of junk buddies.

  4. Round Top is between Austin and Houston. I'm in the Dallas area, so I'd say it is probably 4-5 hours away. I grew up in Austin and my folks still live there. I can't believe I've never been to Round Top. I should make the trip!

    Now Canton is the other BIG flea market here in TX (First Monday Trades Days). It's HUGE. It's the weekend of every first Monday. I think it's been in existence for over 100 years, and it could take you days to go through the entire thing. People come from out of state for this one. Canton is about 1 1/2 hours from me. I've been there several times. It's a cool place. Our city also has a flea market (3rd Monday Trades Days) and it's not nearly as big as Canton, but it's been around for a while too, and is nice, but people don't come from out of state for this one. Well, maybe Oklahoma since OK is only about an hour away. ;) It's going on this weekend in fact, and it's about a mile or two from my house. I haven't been in a while. Maybe I can convince hubs to go this afternoon. Doubt's pretty hot in TX right now. LOL

  5. Happy to help, Alice!

    UW - I've read so much online about about Canton, TX, and have seen many blogs with amazing pictures! I can only imagine what kind of awesome shindig that is! Texas seems to be one of those states with the best fleamarkets lucky girl! I'll keep you posted about Round Top though...I'm still unsure what I'll be able to do. Wouldn't mind a trip to Canton either. Someday...


  6. Candy - I CAN HARDLY WAIT! We'll be doing some serious "junk bonding" on our road trip - and having a BIG time with our junking buddies! Woo hoo!
