The ever-humorous Deb Haupt of Haupt Antiek Market in Apple Valley, Minn., likes to call this “getting a leg up on sales.” More fun facts:



Her slice of the junking pie: “My husband and I travel to Europe to shop the flea markets of France, Italy, Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands and ship home one-of-a-kind finds.”



Related sidelight: They take groups of shoppers along for European shopping trips. Next up: Oct. 10-19, to Provence, France.



Best piece she’s hauled to the Bonanza: Metal washstands from Europe.



Best junking find: An iron piece that covered a window in an old barn in Germany.



Been with the Bonanza: “Since the beginning! I was involved when it was just 18 extra vendors at the Long Lake Junk Market.”



She loves: The camaraderie among vendors.





Funniest Bonanza memory: “When the lights went off in Medina and we had to scramble around in the dark.”



Can’t junk without: GPS.



No one would guess: She would love to get her Christmas cards out on time.



We’re all about being on time! For your planning purposes, it is only 23 days until the Junk Bonanza!
