Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) -- They say one man's Junk is another man's treasure, which rang true today for the fourth junk hunt event in Duluth.

This time around the hunt featured 50 booths, doubling the amount of treasures from the last junk hunt in June.

Most of the items are either antiques or re-purposed items.

All proceeds from the Junk hunt will go to the Encounter Youth Center.

People from all over the state came to see what treasures they could find.

"It's amazing, lots of really nice things, a lot of interesting things, a lot of different things, it's very nice," said Jeanne Ecklund who is from Crosby-Ironton.

"There's really no other show like it in the Duluth area, we have a lot of cool venders who bring in the best of the best," said founder Emily Broman.

Doors open again Saturday morning at 10. Customers also get free Bridgman's Ice cream with a paid admission.
