One of the perks of hosting JunkFest is meeting all the great shoppers from across the tri-state region (and beyond). But what's really great about the junking business and the sale we host, is meeting the incredibly talented, artistic, and inspirational folks that are travelling great distances to help us put on a stellar show!
That category of people includes Jodi Mann, of Mann Made Signs from International Falls, MN. Jodi is co-owner of "No Place Like Home" antiques store, and still manages to sell her hand made signs at many shops and events across ND and MN.
Like so many others, Jodi also has a FB page, where you can see some more of her work here. All I can say is, WOW has this girl been busy! Thanks for joining us this year Jodi....cannot wait to see your creations!!
Returning vendor Heidi Bear of Crafting Adventures brings her fun fresh mix of hand crocheted hats, cowls, blankets, and chunky necklaces. Heidi has me longing for fall and winter just so I can snuggle up in one of these adorable hats or cowls!
Heidi also sells these accessories on Etsy, and can also be found on FB here. Welcome back Heidi!
Emily Steele of Burlap & Grace definitely has the corner on cute when it comes to hair accessories! Of course her living models are sweet on the eyes too! Emily will be vending at JunkFest 2013, and rumor has it, she will also be bringing some furniture with her! Wonder if those cute models are tagging along?!
Check out her photos on FB here. You're sure to find something you like!
And if that wasn't enough cute overload for ya, take a look at these pint-sized outfits from JennaRose Doll clothes! Shelly Corbett & Bonnie Aamot from Grand Forks will have your American Girl or Bitty Baby dressed for playtime success with their hand sewn doll clothes. I am seriously tempted to invest in an American Girl doll myself....unless I can talk the gals into replicating some of these outfits in my size!
Whether you're a collector, junker, or just like to play with dolls, there's something for everyone at JunkFest! Don't forget, food vendors also on sight! And, music by Amanda Standalone and her jug band Alien Brain & the Jugular Vein!
And woodsy things too, for a lake girl like me. ;)
And even a boutique!! Gorgeous!

Have you noticed how popular typography has become? Especially when it comes to vintage decor? Along with that, vinyl decals and wall words are certainly holding their own. Karen Brandt of Countryside Signs & Designs has made an art form out of combining the two...vinyl & vintage!
Along with her home decor signs and decorated windows, Karen will also be bringing her own unique repurposed furniture, as well as vinyl clad tiles to JunkFest. Karen also has a FB page, Countryside Signs & Designs. Stop out to JunkFest on Saturday, September 7 to help us welcome Karen!
