With spring in full swing, what better way to spend a weekend than at the Washington State Fairgrounds, where visitors will find treasures galore being sold by a variety of curated vendors. Shop items that can’t be found anywhere else!


This event has been created for curators and shoppers who love the thrill of the hunt for vintage, upcycled and one-of-a-kind items. Shoppers will discover everything under the sun, from farmhouse, industrial, vintage, repurposed and handmade goods, and much more, at the 2021 Great Junk Hunt.


The Great Junk Hunt has been voted the top traveling vintage market in the U.S. by Flea Market Style magazine, named one of the Top 15 Flea Markets in America by Romantic Homes Magazines and listed as a Top 5 Flea Market in America by Flea Market Décor magazine.
