Travel Adventures of the Pixie Pickers!

"Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep the Pixie Pickers from their Junk".
(We did pass some US mail delivery trucks).

As March was coming in as a lion, we were truckin' our way down the blustery north shore of Lake Superior.

It was Day 1 of our buying trip to Central Minnesota.
Our knuckles were not the only things that were white, there was about 10' of visibility with white-out conditions.

But we were on a mission.
Luckily, we found some transport trucks to show us where the road was and successfully arrived at our destination just a little tired from the tension. It was a room service dinner and Kobo's for us.

Thursday, we bounced out of bed and in spite of the lack of Timmie's to get us going, we were almost first in the "earlybird" line.

Here is what was revealed as we entered the Junk Market Under Glass....

There were oodles of creative vignettes,

vintage finds mixed with artisanal, industrial and retail display pieces,

the beauty of greenery mixed in with funky table setttings.

Check out the scrap boards used as placemats...

Rusty hardware bins as storage,

an old cafeteria dish tray rack as display shelving,

artfully placed farm surplus, architectural salvage & tree stumps.

Giant letters from old signs were everywhere!

So much to see and/or grab before the general public was let in.

Tune in tomorrow to see Day 2 at the sale.
