Junk Bonanza 2011, Shakopee, Camellia's Thunder Bay, On

I was so glad to be able to go to Junk Bonanza this year. I went last year and was overwhelmed, so this year I went with a shopping list, and a plan to start at the back of the show, and work my way slowly to the front. I was still overwhelmed by the creativity of the vendors, and the vast array of products which might otherwise have been thrown into a Junk pile.

I couldn't choose from the photos I took, so this is going to be a rather long post.

Industrial chic wall shelf.

Photo Op at the entrance to Junk Bonanza.

What a cool idea...reusing pages from old books!

A Bike Carrier basket --if only I had an old bike for this!

A lampshade made from old projector slides - what a great use for old slides. The light shining through the slides looks amazing.

French hand-stamped ribbon.

This dress could be a walking advertisement for Restoration Hardware.

Nice skirt - made from pages of old books.

Old typewriter keys made into Jewellery - how cool is that?

Camellia's - Come into the store to see what we created with our finds from Junk Bonanza ..
We have extended hours this Fall - so you can Shop longer. We are OPEN ALL YEAR LONG!
Wed. 11-5, Thurs. Noon-8. Fri. 11-6. Sat.11-5. Sun. Noon-5.

We are 10 minutes from the Thunder Bay Airport. Head south along Highway 61, when you get to the Neebing Roadhouse and the Best western Hotel, stay on Highway 61 for 3.6 km. Turn left on Hacquoil Rd. we are 1.6 km. on the Left.

Custom Florals at Camellia's, Handmade in Thunder Bay, On

You meet all kinds on interesting animals on a Drive in the Country. I stopped on Farm Road to take some photos of these Cows, they all came over to see what I was doing.

This little guy wanted to get as close as possible! I said GoodBye to them, and went home to have a steak dinner...(feeling quite guilty about this...sigh....)

We're busy trying to get some Custom Designing in, this is a nice accent to match our lime green & chocolate Bedding. This would look fabulous on a bedside table.

Here's the arrangement beside the Pillow from the SOYA collection of Bedding which we sell - available in Duvet cover and all the matching accessories.

We're also busy trying to harvest everything from the Cutting Gardens...from this.. this. This wreath also has Peonies which we picked from the Garden a while back. Come visit The Camellia - we'd love to see you!
Enjoy the warm weather we're having for September!

OPEN : Wednesday through Sunday. Friday 11-5, Sat. 11-5, Sun. 12-5.
30/32 Hacquoil Rd. p-(807)475-3551

Here's the same piece on a Red door. Price: $29.00-$39.00
