I have Junk lag...

Howdy!!!It was a very early morning yesterday! I'm tired..but it was oh so worth it! My posse and I headed out early to get in line for the Junk Bonanza in Medina Mn. The doors opened at seven am to all of us early birds!once again owner Ki Nassauer and vendors pulled off a amazing sale! We were in junk over load! All though it has only been a couple years since I quit the junk biz, it was like a reunion of junk vendors !!! it was so nice to see everyone.... A cute pumpkin on a old downspout...too cute, Jan!
All of us were so excited to get our gift bags...
I knew I couldn't get my friends to jump up on this truck for a photo, they were getting tired of me taking their picture, but this truck was here for a great photo op.
Donna, Lynn and I with Junk Bonanza owner, Ki Nassauer. Ki was busily running around greeting everyone...thanks for the picture Ki!
Loved this booth...it just grabbed you when you first walked in....
The first 500 junkers received a gift bag! one of the best gifts included was a year subscription to Country home...hands down my favorite magazine!

Have you gotten your latest Country home yet? this is what the cover looks like..
I am so disappointed we missed Matthew Mead,(brunch was calling...) he was there signing his new book!
Another well styled booth...I loved this counter!
My posse...Lynn and Donna! we had so much fun together. Look at the great cupboard behind them...
One of my favorite dealers and friend,Jan and her husband Jim! they had their cute Junk Bonanza t shirts on and their booth was gorgeous!

Great shots! Wasn't the Bonanza the best!? They put on a great event. The vendors are incredibly friendly and the junk was amazing! This was my first time there, but I think it will become an annual event for me! We'll have to plan to meet there next year!

I'm so glad you shared the pictures! What a fun day. I spent my day with 18 six year olds instead! I hope to get to a Junk Bonanza someday. Country Home is my favorite too. In fact it's the only magazine I'm currently getting in my efforts to reduce paper waste and clutter. What else was in that goodie bag...hmmmmmmm?

I love to hear about a great sale, but I don't like to hear it is so far away from where I live. What great fun that had to have been.
Just me..a fellow junker

I had computer issues, and I'm just catching up on your blog, I can't believe I haven't been over for a visit for so long! Looks like a fun time! I wanted to go, even though I knew I wouldn't this year. I'm really hoping it'll work out next year! Glad to share in it through your pictures.
