OMG!*!*! ChiPPy-SHaBBy ShoPPing ORONOCO GOLD RUSH - Minnesota!!!

It's been forever that I've wanted to S*H*O*P the Famous ORONOCO GOLD RUSH Antique/Flea Market
 I've heard nothing but "Good-Things" about it from Dealers...  THIS YEAR IT FINALLY HAPPENED!*!*!  Frog Husband and I "Packed~It~In" these last 4 Days!!!
Here's "just an overview" to get you started!!!

**GOLD RUSH DAYS**
SHOPPING
"To Me" ~ It was like a "Mini Version of 
 The Round Top Texas Flea"... 
Starts Out in the "Downtown" Area of Oronoco, Minnesota...






 I talked to Dealers from
 Texas, New Orleans, Nebraska, Iowa, Wisconsin, & Illinois...



 Dealer/Friend *DIANE PASSI*
Working on her "Set-Up"
BeSt Industrial ViNtaGe F*I*N*D*S & Display!*!*! 




 GOLD RUSH DAYS ANTIQUE/FLEA SHOPPING
is not only in Downtown Oronoco...
Just about 10 minutes away, in ROCHESTER, MN
is yet another Antique/Flea Event at the Fairgrounds!!!
OMG!*!*!  ~ BeSt!!!







ON-OUR-4th-DAY-OUT 
AFTER Shopping both Downtown Oronoco, & the Fairgrounds in Rochester,  we re-organized
 the SHABBBY Van and headed toward Minneapolis
 to squeeze a bit more in!!!




 I netted some FaB ViNtaGe F*I*N*D*S Here...
HUNT & GATHER





 I ALWAYS find something at this FaB ViNtAGe Shop
Lacey, the owner is so creative with her displays!!!
(Just a couple minutes down the sidewalk from Hunt & Gather...)




More pics to come...
Can't wait to Unload the Van!*!*!
