Welcome back to Isaac and Charles Olson of Old Barn Woods and Goods
Welcome back to Isaac and Charles Olson of Old Barn Woods and Goods, to Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days, August 17-19, 2018. This year they are moving right around the corner and will be located in booth D105 directly across the street from the Fire Department. Their merchandise is exceptional and when you read their story which was published on their website, you will understand why:
“Our authentic Old Barn Wood items reflect the rural, rustic appearance of century old reclaimed barns. The items we offer are hand made, each with their uniqueness that shows the history of the barn it came from. They are individually made of untouched barn boards which show nail holes, rust from a latch, imprints from a cow rub or barn door swinging, along with the weathering from the different colors of paint. The workshop that we use to create our items is an old Minnesota barn that originally was built as a local two story school house in 1886. Thirty years later they needed a bigger school house so it was moved to our farm and adapted for cows and horses. We were destined to continue participating in Old Barn traditions by reclaiming rural Minnesota barns and preserving a slice of American history in our barn wood creations.” http://www.facebook.com/oldbarnwoodsandgoods/
So if you are like most shoppers and enjoy the variety that the Antique and Vintage dealers bring than you just might be a fan of Rosetta's already. We bring you this posting so you can find where For the Love of Junk has returned to.
Rosetta’s two booths are in the D lot (D147 and 148) almost outside the West Door of the Community Center

He always brings a lovely selection of perennials and succulents and a favorite of many shoppers, plants and items for your fairy gardens.
Metal Artist, Ryan Halbur of Iowa Creations, will be in Oronoco this August 17-19
Metal art can be especially useful in bringing a garden or yard to life. While "Iowa Creations" is actually located in Independence Iowa for the Downtown Oronoco Gold Rush Days it will be located on Minnesota Avenue, just East of the Fire Hall. Look for section G and his booth is number 150.
Whether it is a reclaimed barn board, used plow tine, or scrap piece of sheet metal; the possibilities are limited only by the imagination. Ryan takes his greatest pride in helping others bring their imagination to life through his creations. http://www.iowacreations.com/
