Three days of peace, love, music and junk. Sounds like heaven, doesn't it?

Junk vendors from five states will return to Junkstock: Harvest Edition at the old dairy farm at 315 S. 192nd St. this weekend to sell their vintage treasures, antiques and artisan-made pieces.

Here are the details: When is it?

Junkstock is 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday; 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

How does it work?

Each vendor will bring his or her own twist on re-purposing 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?

Barbecue tamales, wood-fired pizza, rounders, kettle corn or one of many other options. Vendors are Locomotive Food Truck, Lindsey Enterprises, Smoke 'N Pizza, Pig in a Bag, Cactus Jack's Chuck Wagon and Mockingbird Cupcakes.

Which bands are performing?

Brad Hoshaw, Midwest Dilemma, Ray Michael, Southpaw Bluegrass Band, Matt Cox, Belle & Whistles, Orion Walsh, Prairie Gators 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.
