HOB NOBBER SPRING GIVE-AWAY



                             HOB NOBBER SPRING GIVE-AWAY

                 So our BIG SPRING SALE is coming up and we are having another GIVE-AWAY! 


  And we are giving awaaaaayyyy.... a $30 gift certificate to shop our sale and the opportunity to come in and shop before we open. So are you ready? All you have to do is leave a comment on this post that you want to be "in" on the give-away. Leave a first name with your comment. Simple! May 26th is the last day to enter and we will draw a name via the online random generator on May 27th. Please leave a way for us to contact you.

You have to be able to come to our sale and shop in order to enter. So there it is! And good luck!

My daughter, Elissa, and I went to Junk Bonanza in Shakopee, Minnesota! You really can't get through that place in a day! There is so much to see! I was hoping to take some photos but I got so caught up in shopping that I kept forgetting. But I DID manage to get a FEW...

We were really drawn to the many light fixtures made from rustic vintage items...








This one was from a vintage car headlight.

 And I fell in love with this 1940's French laundry basket



Which I ended up buying! But not the thing underneath it. Because the basket was too big to carry along with us I left it at the booth with a sold sign on it. When we were ready to leave with it I felt like I was going to be mugged for the basket. I heard so many people say, "There goes that basket I wanted but it was sold!" And, "There goes that lady who got the basket!" I was waiting with my treasures for my daughter to get the car as people passed and commented. I wanted to pick up our stuff and run but I had too much stuff! When my daughter arrived I said, "Whew! Glad you got here when you did! Everybody wanted my basket!" Really though everybody was friendly and maybe just a bit jealous that I got there first.  I also got a great deal on two authentic grain sacks from France and a colorful vintage tablecloth. Elissa bought a big galvanized can and a rustic six cubby shelf.

We spent a lot of time at the vendors booth where I got the basket and grain sacks and Elissa bought the can. The poor guy was working alone and was overwhelmed selling things so fast he could hardly keep up! He didn't have anything priced so we finally were able to get his attention to get all the prices of everything in his booth. So then because he was so busy taking people's money, people started asking us if we knew the price of things so we told them. When others heard us telling prices they thought we worked there and people kept asking US questions! Funny thing is we had the answers because we were lucky enough to get the answers before he got TOO busy!

This guy was from LA and takes trips to France and Europe every month to pick up stuff. I told Elissa, who loves to travel, that I'm going to send her to France to get us some more neat stuff!


                            These benches with wood drawers were his hottest sellers! I think the drawers were the French purchase and the benches were made to fit!


My two grain sacks. These are really big and some people make big bolster pillows with them but I have one and I cut the sides of the sack, doubling the length and made a table runner. I LOVE mine!


 Elissa and I went for his other stuff...But the good news for YOU is that the grain sacks are for sale and are listed  in my Etsy store, Gwen And Alma's here.   And the much desired 1940's French Laundry Basket will be for sale at our Hob Nobbers Spring Sale!

So crazy as it is these were the only pictures I took as we got too busy shopping! But we had a great time!
