Junk Bonanza Vintage Market Minneapolis

Junk Bonanza Minneapolis features loads of fabulous antique and vintage treasures to browse, and the chance to find that one special item that you simply can’t live without.

Twice a year vintage lovers from near and far flock to home base city of Minneapolis to check out the hand-picked vendors’ creative displays. Three years ago, the show expanded its reach to the West Coast where shoppers in the Pacific Northwest have been able to enjoy Junk Bonanza goodness in Portland, Oregon.

Junk Bonanza Minneapolis is held at the Canterbury Park, a horse racing track located 24 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis. The show’s location is super convenient with free ample parking and easy access thanks to MVTA’s 493 – Downtown Minneapolis Express. Visit the ticket booth to buy your wrist band ($10 regular admission, $30 early bird or $25 if purchased in advance) and you’re ready to enter the show.

While Canterbury Park’s large exhibit hall doesn’t exactly exude a vintage vibe, the good news is that the aisles are wide so you don’t feel crowded even when there are lots of shoppers. Plus, it’s held indoors, a huge advantage in the State of Hockey, which experiences temperature extremes, characteristic of its continental climate, with cold winters and hot summers.

Over 140 vendors usually fill the venue, with all kinds of vintage goodness, ranging from flannel shirts and fifties kitsch to fine European furniture and linens. No reproductions are allowed and any handmade items had to incorporate mainly vintage or recycled goods. This makes for a wonderfully eclectic mix of curated treasures as each vendor had their own unique style reflected in their displays and collections.

Junk Bonanza Minneapolis regularly holds “Lucky Friday” giveaways to win door prizes, and special events like meet-the-author. But best of all, Junk Bonanza Minneapolis features loads of fabulous antique and vintage treasures to browse, friendly and knowledgeable vendors to meet and the chance to find that one special item that you simply can’t live without!

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
