A French Flea, a Flea Market, and a Flea Bag.

On our recent JunkGirl trip to MN, we stopped at the French Flea occasional sale in Anoka. This shop was jam packed full of beautiful French inspired furniture and accessories. We had to apologize for drooling on a few things, but they were very understanding.

Here are a few of the fabulous creations made by our friend Gretchen, of Mimi Toria's.

Junk Goddess, aka Cassie, is checking out some fabulous handmade bags.

As I promised a while back, just a few shots I managed to get of the flea market we hosted at JunkFest 2009. I apologize for so few pictures. These were taken before the sale began, of course there was no time to hold a camera once the ribbons were cut! This is only a sampling of the fabulous variety of items available at the flea market with many were return vendors and several new. Everything from pumpkins to crafts, furniture to potatoes, and everything in between could be found at the flea market this year.Pumpkins galore!
A very fun addition this year was Janell, with Time 4 You Massage. What better way can you think of to relax those shopping muscles! I hear the neck and shoulder rubs that day were DREAMY!

A local greenhouse with some gorgeous plants!
There was oodles of talent to be found. Here is Tamra of Just For You Jewelry and Beads.

Local artisan Darcie of October's Child, with her fabulous felted wool products.

And just because I thought it was a catchy's the Flea Bag! ME!! I found my dream vending machine this summer....


  1. If we dance to your music...I bet we can lose the calories from your dream machine!

  2. just makes me want to go back to Minnesota again! I also purchased a necklace from Gretchen...mine is a $7 cash register tag with some additional jewels, similar to Sweet Melissa's. I love it!

    OMG did you BUY that vending machine?!! Just looks yummy! Andrea

  3. Looks like y'all had a great time. And hey, back away from that vending machine, the M&M's are MINE! ;-)
    All the best,

  4. Flea Bag. . . too funny, I am picking myself off of the floor. . .

    ANOKA. . . the most haunted city in Minnesota. . . did you go on any haunted tours ? My sister lives there, I will have to checkout that French Flea market sometime !


  5. I would love to come here next year. Do you advertise in the Minot paper, or how can I get info. Do you send out e-mail notices? Everything looks fab.
