Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.COM) --- They say one man's junk is another's treasure and Friday, several treasures were sold to help a Duluth Youth shelter.

About 20 vendors from as far as the Twin Cities area are selling their "junk" at the semi-annual Junk Hunt.

From Christmas items to chairs, road signs, wooden ducks and lamps, the Encounter gym is filled with a large assortment of vintage and antique items.

A percentage of the proceeds will be given back to encounter, a youth shelter with a skate park, gym and concert venue.

"All of the staff and volunteers all have a real positive influence on these kids that are coming in,” Emily Broman, Founder of the Duluth Junk Hunt said. “A lot of them come from rough homes, and not the best living condition."

The Junk Hunt continues Saturday.
