Since my husband started collecting with me we have amassed SO MUCH MORE and have also found some bigger items that fit in well with other "events". So here's what we are going to do: We are renting a space at the Rochester Gold Rush! I'm really excited about it! Since this is our first venture into this type of arena we are not sure what to expect but  we DO  KNOW we'll have fun meeting people with the same love of  antiques, vintage, and old stuff that we have. 

This event is  a few weeks before our Hob Nobber sale so you'll have a chance to purchase some of our finds BEFORE our Hob Nobber event.  We'd love to see you all come out and see some of the things we have. Of course a small space at Gold Rush is not even CLOSE to the amount of treasures we will have for you over our Hob Nobber Labor Day weekend event so you won't want to miss that one either!

1930's grocery scale
One of the things we will have for sale at Gold Rush is the scale pictured. It is a 1930's grocery store counter top scale. It is in great condition, still works, and  has amazing graphics! I can see this fun treasure in someone's  large  vintage kitchen or perhaps in a market owned by lovers of vintage. It makes a great conversation piece as well as adding to the great vintage feel! Anyone who loves VINTAGE and FOOD will love this piece!

So be sure and put the Rochester Gold Rush on your calendar, August 17-19, along with our  "now annual" Hob Nobber sale!


  1. Hello Sandy! Thank you for visiting my blog. I just LOVE that VINTAGE SCALE!! THats a WINNER! Can't wait to see more and get to know you! I am following! Where is this GOLD RUSH SALE and your HOB NOB SALE? I wonder if I'm close....I'm in OHIO! Would LOVE to be there if I could! from one sweetie to another....Roxie

    1. Hey, Roxie

      Both sales are in Rochester,Mn, home of the world famous Mayo Clinic. ;)

      Gold Rush is an Antique and Flea Market( Aug 17-19 )with hundreds of vendors from all across the U.S. There are actually TWO Gold Rushs' held at the same time with one being held in a small bedroom community of Rochester called Oronoco. You can read about that one in the newest Flea Market Style magazine.

      Hob Nobbers is an annual occasional sale that two friends and I hold. Our event is in an historic mansion( photos somewhere on my blog ) and we fill 7 rooms FULL of antique and vintage treasures,and collectibles. This event will take place over Labor Day weekend on Sunday, Sept 2nd and Monday Sept 3rd.

      Ohio is not that far...;) Both events are fun! Would love to see you there! Thanks for the follow! sandy ;)
