Creme de la creme of a junker's paradise . . .

OH.MY.GOSH.  This place is OVER.THE.TOP.  I could have spent all day here instead of the 2 hours we did spend!  I always wondered where multiples of anything could be found and this is the place!  Just savor the pictures and think of the things you could own and what you would do with all this STUFF!


Hunt & Gather is located in Edina.  Go there!  Quickly!  Bring cash!




















And for you doll head geeks (me?  I'm still just a little freaked out over them)  . . .


Oh yea!  This is one place that I will be re-visiting when I go to Junk Bonanza!  I'll have a plan!  I'll take the whole day!  I'll be filling the car with words, flashcards, game balls, wheels and lots and lots of bits and baubles!  My main man will definately roll his eyes here!

What would you spell out with little letters?

Shellagh from Ticking and Toile just did a post featuring pictures of Kristi's (owner of Hunt & Gather) home and it is so cute, cute, cute!  Looks like she chose the creme de la creme from her own shop for herself!

Hope you are all busy making beautiful things . . .

!!Connie!! Oh my! My old stomping grounds! I had to google this store to see where it was located. We lived in the Mpls. area for 16 years, 10 of those years we were within a few miles of this area. I haven't visited the shops for years now...but you can bet I'll try and peek in at this one. Another fun antiquing destination is Stillwater, MN which sits on the Minnesota/Wisconsin border. Don't know if you go this part of the country often, but if you do google Stillwater sometime. Very charming! Now you have me thinking I need to plan a trip back that way around Junk Bonanza! xo, Sue

What a wonderful place this is, an altered artists heaven! What word would I spell out with the little letters? Well, today I think it would be 'OUCH', cos I slipped over in the street on a wet metal drain hole cover. I've got a very bruised bottom and it was not very dignified!

I read about this place once before somewhere - thanks for reminding me of it again! Another reason to try to go to Junk Bonanza...my problem so far has been it falls over my son's birthday. Well, he goes to college in 2 years, I guess I will have to wait till then.

Have fun!

Connie,

No FAIR! FOUL! to show this when there is no way I can go the store. I think my heart actually skipped a beat...let me go look again...yep...heart palpitations, and a laugh at starfish..very dead.

Let me now go check out your blog and see what other tortures you have in store for me..

Now, where did I put my defibrillator? :-0

It has been too long! Your pictures of "Hunt and Gather" are fabulous! There has been so much construction on 35W that I have avoided that area. Two seasons here...snow and road repair!
