This is not a pretty sale, just cleaning house, getting ready to move, and making way for new arrivals! Youll find leftovers from projects, vintage molding, table legs, hardware (vintage and new), excess tools, JM apparel, props from photo shoots, junk in the rough, some furniture, storage shelving, paints, stains, and more. See you there!

I'm so excited about this! The cities of Long Lake and Orono are hosting a city wide garage sale. YES...right in my backyard! Long Lake and Orono, Minnesota are located about 20 minutes west of downtown Minneapolis. This promises to be a hoot and a half so we decided to join in the fun. Our lease is up in August so it's time to clean house before the moving van arrives. Please make your way out to this event and join in the fun! The problem fo me, I suspect will be as stuff moves out of the JUNKMARKET warehouse I'll be re-loading it all with all of my new garae sale finds. Oh well, consider it fresh fodder for website projects!

I met one of the owners at Buffalo Nickel and she let me come over for a look. I wish I could find stuff like they had around here. If we had more room in the car I think I would have filled it with MN junk! Posted: 8:03 pm on July 25th

suewhitney writes: Hi All,

Just to clarify and answer some questions. The warehouse sale is NOT of the glamorous variety, but a moving sale. There will be a lot of stuff that I use for projects like scrap wood, hardware, fabric, old records, etc. It will be served up warehouse moving sale style. There will also be vintage pieces available that have not been transformed. The cities of Long Lake and Orono are hosting a city wide garage sale so there will be plenty of shopping venues for garage sale enthusiasts. There may be a garage sale hosted at my home and at Kimberly's home the second week of July IF we can get 'er done in time...stay tuned for details. There are many great shopping venues in this area. The Buffalo Nickel, Annie's Attic, Sweet Salvage all located in Buffalo, MN. There are several good stores in downtown Hopkins, and Hunt & Gather in Minneapolis. hope this helps!

Take care,

The family wants to see the Mall of America. Me, I'm more interested in "MN junk"! Will your warehouse be open during that time? Can you recommend some other good junk venues?

I knew there was a reason I wanted to live in MN!
