Useful “junk” sold by a variety of local vendors filled the Fairplex in Pomona for the Great Junk Hunt last weekend.
The market provided both outdoor and indoor shopping, with more than 100 people there Saturday, buying knick knacks, old and new.
Items included vintage frames, books, dresses, custom-made car parts, jewelry, and paintings.
The market also offered food and drinks including popcorn, loaded fries, ice cream and more.
One vendor, Kristen Gudmundson, sold custom-made banners, frames, drawings, and wood boxes through her shop Banner Gal Creations.
The event went online during the worst of the pandemic, when customers could shop virtually, via Instagram and more.
Shoppers last weekend seemed glad to be in person.
“I love the Great Junk Hunt,” said Gudmundson, selling at the event for the seventh time.
She added that everything at her booth was handmade.
“I have bought a few items for my room and I cannot wait to fix them up once I get home,” said Anthony Martinez, of Pomona.
Another shopper, Nallely Martinez of Pomona, was in search of jewelry and flowers.
“The jewelry here is super-unique because they all make their own,” Martinez said. “They each fix their flowers up so cute, and I love it.”
