BeSt!*!*! SHaBBy ShoPPing WEEKEND ~ In and Around Minneapolis, Minnesota...

This past weekend, For The First Time, I attended
  A GATHERING OF FRIENDS ANTIQUE MARKET
Held at Bachman's Garden Center - Lyndale Avenue,  Minneapolis
 OMG!*!*!  OMG!*!*!  OMG!*!*!
 This Spring-Themed ViNtaGE Garden Show yielded some of the"BeSt-Ever" ChiPPy!-SHaBBy! Finds for me!!!  - Being held at a Wonderfully Older Garden Center - "BACHMAN'S" created a FaB BACKDROP for displays... A good number of these Dealers have "Monthly Occasional Sales" AND quite of few of them also sell at "Junk Bonanza"... The Show ran for 4 days - and with Dealers Re-Stocking each day,  I went back "3 of the 4" !*!*!   This Show is now in the "Top FIVE"  of my FaVoRiTe SHaBBy-ShoPPing STOPS!*!*!

  3. What a great place! What was wrong with 4 out of 4? Did you run out of van room? Lots of good stuff for sure and I definitely like the metal chairs you found. Wonderful colors. Yes, keep us posted on more of your finds.
