If you know anything about me, you know I can’t resist a good flea market, yard sale, vintage store, dumpster dive. Northwest Arkansas is junkin heaven, I’m not kidding. My personal favorites that carry everything from rusted farm equipment and repurposed everything to Brady Bunch Seventies are 410 Vintage Market, Fayetteville’s Funky Yard Sale, Long Ago Antiques, and Daisies and Olive (Prairie Grove). Of course technically I’ve only been here a few weeks so I’m sure there are many I have missed. I will check them all out eventually.
Mostly I just browse (I swear). I enjoying looking at how things are displayed and repurposed.
Here are a few pictures from The Junk Ranch, a two day event held each fall and spring in Prairie Grove, Arkansas. I met up with my writer friend Laurie who is a serious junker with a great eye for cool finds. Laurie is the perfect person to thrift with, plus we have similar tastes which is fun too.
What a flawless autumn afternoon. Look at that sky. Better yet, LOOK AT THAT BARN!
Live music provided the perfect backdrop. Crossing August sounded just like the Dixie Chicks!
Pumpkins for sale.
Inspiration propped on the ground, hanging from the tent poles. Everywhere.
Lots of memories.
And of course treasures.
And more treasures!
We had a great time:)
I bought this vintage tin platter. It’s my favorite shade of turquoise. And it’s almost as big as the coffee table on the back porch.
I love it!
Where do you like to “browse” for treasures?
