Oronoco was Flowing with Good Junk

I knew these little metal boxes would come in handy.  For storing more junk, you ask?  Of course! I reply. 
Do you think I should hang this on my front door?  Lets see how many people walk around the side of the house in search of a way to get in. ;) 
Jenny I got your number...
Some people have a family crEst.  My family has a family crUst...the more time-worn the better.  The number nine has been declared our family crUst ever since my husband and I met.  (It has to do with my birthday being 9/9 and his 9/27).  
These 9s are a 10 in my book, though.   
I met a couple of fans within the streets of Oronoco Gold Rush.  One grey.  One tan. Both had a cool air about them, but welcoming in their own special way. 
I canvassed the area and found this awesome little number.  A military SPARE PARTS ROLL for an M14 would either be a handy tote for fleamarketing, or would scare off those that tried to mess with me while shopping.  Either way, this freebie was the gift thatll keep on giving.      
  
 
    
The rusty box to the left of the bell was purchased at The French Flea.  Unbeknownst to me, I had purchased one of Lanis items.  Very cool. 
I found this heavy duty alarm bell in Oronoco and LOVE it!  An added bonus is my hubs likes it too.      
Do I have a military theme going on here?  The military bag as well as the vintage fleamarket cart came in very handy for toting around all the metal you see.
I was in search of feed or burlap sacks and boy did I find a great stash!  Excellent condition and the price was right!
Fellow contributor, AHmy, and owner of Junkologie contributed this AMAZING street sign to me.  Cool gifts hold a special place in my heart.  Love, love, love it!  
My traveling partner, Kathy, knows how to make a friend smile.  She remembered that I mentioned Id like to own one of these vintage stamp holders in an old post and that I wanted to avoid purchasing online due to price.  Her bag of goodies included this beauty.  Definitely deserving of my stamp of approval.    
Gretchen gifted me an adorable necklace which I didnt remove the entire time we were in Minnesota.  I LOVE it!   
Any guesses on who might have given me this plated gem?  This fitted-jeaned chica has a quirky sense of humor that makes you laugh until you almost...well, you get the picture.    
My junk stash is all nice and tidy here but the pieces will be put to work very soon.  Look for future posts on JUNKMARKET Style that include my goodies from Orononoco, MN as well as posts on my blog Junk Sophisticate.

As much as I would have loved to purchase a few big ticket items in Minnesota, I focused on the "smalls".  (a term I'm taking back to Ohio with me).  There is so much metal going on in these photos - I hope you're up to date on your tetanus shot.
