DULUTH JUNK HUNT CELEBRATES 5 YEARS!
110+ booths of vintage finds & re-purposed treasures at the Duluth Junk Hunt, May 19th & 20th
The eleventh semi-annual Duluth Junk Hunt will be taking place on May 19th (10 AM – 5 PM) and May 20th (9 AM – 4 PM) inside the Duluth Heritage Sports Center in west Duluth. There will be an array of different “junk” vendors from all over Minnesota & Wisconsin showcasing all things vintage, antique & re-purposed! (This spring there are over 30 different cities represented!) Customers can shop from a huge assortment of antique furniture & re-purposed home décor, as well as jewelry & other vintage items. There will also be a special “Early Bird” admission ticket available on Friday morning from 8 – 10 AM for those hard-core junkers who want to shop before the rest of the crowds arrive. (Early Bird ticket also includes a free donut!) And to celebrate their 5 year anniversary, the Duluth Junk Hunt will be doing a “Best Booth” contest for vendors, and giveaways / prizes for shoppers!
“We are amazed with the growth and popularity of the Junk Hunt,” says Emily Broman, founder of the Duluth Junk Hunt. “We started out with a half dozen vendors at our June 2012 event, and now at our 11th show, we’re filling up over 110 booths!” Due to the growth of the event, it will now be taking place at the Heritage Center, instead of the Encounter Youth Center / Skatepark – the original location. “We loved growing and developing our event at the Encounter, and will continue to donate part of the proceeds to their youth center and ministry.”
In addition to shopping all of these unique booths in a large, indoor, industrial setting, customers will be able to enjoy food & beverages from the Heritage concession stand, and the new farmers market section of the Junk Hunt! Admission is $5/person, with part of the proceeds being donated to the Encounter Youth Center. Shoppers are encouraged to take advantage of the photo booth opportunities – beside an old 1946 Ford truck, or with the display of different vintage letters! Duluth Junk Hunt t-shirts, totes & other merchandise will be available for purchase. The ever popular “Junk Hunks” will also be on hand to help customers haul large pieces of furniture out to their cars, free of charge!
