Oronoco Gold Rush Days are here at last. This is an event I look forward to all year long and this time around it's going to be even better with the addition of the Junkologie Blog Party. So come on and join us if you can. On Friday, August 14th I, along with JMS contributors Kimberly, Lanette, Gretchen, Candy, and Kathy will be shopping 'til we drop while Miss Amy is selling 'til she drops. When we do finally drop it will be at the nearby KOA. Yep, you heard me right, I am forcing the girls to spend an evening camping by an open fire. This should be worth the price of admission!

On Saturday we'll be having a big girl's breakfast at the fire station followed by more junking and possibly one or two of the world famous ice cream sandwiches found only at Oronoco. At 3 PM you will be able to find all of us at Amy's booth, Junkologie located at the corner of Minnesota Avenue and Center Street West. Let the blog party begin...should be tons of fun! Please stop by and join us for conversation only a junker can understand, food (bring a dish to share...it's a junker's potluck!) and a book signing. JMS member, Cherwood will also be there doing a Tomboy Tools demonstration. Tool time...Yes!!

Georgia's comments about the best ice cream sandwiches concerns me. I mean really. I know how many GENERIC ice cream sandwiches I can plow through in a sitting...what in the world am I going to do with these FAMOUS ones in front of my face????

Can't wait to see!

I loved everything! the shopping, the food, the people...everything, except unloading the giant truck (with the heaviest stuff on EARTH) in the rain...I remember that REAL well! I suggest that anyone that has the chance to go to this event should do everything possible to get there. I wish that I was going to be there, even though I know I would just buy things that I could never get home, eat too much pie, and probably have 17 ice cream sandwiches (the BEST)! You will all have the BEST time EVER, Georgia Posted: 2:30 pm on July 24th
