If you’re a California dweller as serious about vintage as you are – well – just about anything, then the news we’re about to share will be totally calling your name! The Junk Bonanza, a must-shop market experience for vintage lovers, is coming to the Del Mar Fairgrounds March 20-22, choosing California as the site of its first show outside of Minnesota, where the event originated. The Bonanza is known for its curated selection + artful vignettes of vintage finds, antiques, architectural salvage and artisan-repurposed goods. And it’s the perfect way to spend an afternoon shopping with your vintage-loving friends!
For the upcoming San Diego show, in addition to a well-edited selection of amazing antiques, there will be a Weddings Lab installation, curated by California vintage expert Jeni Maus of Found Vintage Rentals and celebrity wedding and event designer, Jo Gartin of Love Luck and Angels. Jeni will visually inspire attendees on how they can incorporate vintage items into their decor for maximum charm. If you are DIYing your wedding design, we can’t stress enough how cool of an opportunity this would be, to learn from one of the industry’s best! And Jo will share ideas and anecdotes and take questions in appearances at noon and 2 pm Saturday, March 21! The Lab will also feature ideas for tabletop, cake and other decor, including goods from several local purveyors. Some of our other favorite vendors will be joining the lab including: Sweet and Saucy Shop, Dish Wish, Amigo Booth, Art with Nature Floral Design and Studio EMP Photography.
General admission is $10 per day, and you can purchase your tickets at the door (cash only). Early Bird tickets are available for $25 online + $30 at the door and are good for entry at 8 am Friday — two hours before shopping opens to general public! You can order your tickets in advance, online, right here!
So, SoCal friends, who’s coming?!! If you’re planning a vintage-inspired wedding, this is an event not to be missed! And if you can’t get enough vintage, but aren’t local to San Diego, The Bonanza’s Spring and Fall shows are April 16-18 + Sept. 24-26 in Minneapolis, Minnesota and Oct. 9-11 in the Portland, Oregon area!
