If you love vintage, up-cycled and repurposed items, you won't want to miss Junkstock this weekend.

More than 70 “junk” vendors from five states will meet at an old dairy farm at 315 S. 192nd St. to sell their vintage treasures, antiques and artisan-made pieces. Here are the details:

How does it work?

Each vendor will bring his or her own twist on repurposing items, which will include vintage jewelry and children's clothing made from recycled materials and home decor made from scrap metal. The event also will feature live music, food and a play area for kids with a bounce house, balloons, face-painting and harvest-themed crafts.

What kind of “junk” will be at the event?

Architectural salvage, farm-fresh finds, rescued junque and cottage shabby chic — those are just some of the categories of items you will find. You can also visit www.junkstockomaha.com to get a better idea.

Who came up with the idea for the event?

Junkstock is the brainchild of Sara Alexander of Papillion's Junque Factory, but other hosts include Scout: Dry Goods & Trade in Dundee, Admiral District and Momaha.com, The World-Herald's social networking website for moms.

What kind of food will be there?

Get hot apple cider, Caribbean jerk barbecue, wood-fired pizza, rounders or one of many other options. Vendors are Locomotive Food Truck, Lindsey Enterprises, Smoke 'N Pizza and Mockingbird Cupcakes.

Which bands are performing?

Brad Hoshaw, Midwest Dilemma, Ray Michael, Platte River Rain, Southpaw Bluegrass Band, Matt Cox, Jessica Errett, Manouche Moustache, One Eye White, Orion Walsh & The Rambling Hearts, Prairie Gators, Sans Banjo and Sarah Benck, among others.

What's the cost?

There is a $5 admission fee. Children under 12 are free. Weekend passes are available for $12. A portion of the admission fees will be donated to the Creutzfeldt-Jakobs Disease Foundation and The Dragonfly Project, a nonprofit group offering support to those grieving a death.
