“JunkStock is the Midwest’s premiere event for architectural salvage, antiques, repurposed jewelry, one-of-a-kind vintage pieces, primitives, shabby chic, vintage clothing, and all things old and unique. Vendors from all over the Midwest gather on at this repurposed dairy farm to showcase their goods.”
