Ahh Junk Bonanza. What can I say? It’s an A-MAY-ZING show. I’ve never seen anything like it, except in magazines! The vendors pull out all the stops, put up some jaw-dropping displays and definitely bring the junk!
I had an early bird ticket again this year and my sister-in-law decided to come along with me (to my delight) at the last minute so I made my way to the ticket window shortly after we arrived at 7 am to purchase her ticket. On my way back to my spot in line, I ran into some friends who had also made the drive from Wisconsin. It was a delightful surprise. I also spotted Ki Nassauer walking the line and saying hello to everyone, so I stopped and chatted with her for a moment and asked if we could take a picture together. She politely agreed:
|Please meet Beth Bright from Blue Star Collections – she and I chatted for a bit about blogs, the art of blogging
and a little bit about junk. She gave me some great insight, advice and a little encouragement.
Thanks Beth! I truly appreciated our chat!
|I stopped by to say hello to my very good and talented friends from 3 Wren Street when
Kim Yaeger (Lark Nest Designs/Flea Market Style Magazine) also stopped by during that time
so I jumped at the photo opportunity!
|Love the trucks as business card holders!|
|Now that’s a lot of silver!!|
|This is the VERY funny and talented Judy from Rhubarb Co. Store (there is no website on her business card).
I bought so much from her last year that she remembered me right away. I’m not sure that’s a good thing
|Antique levels as picture ledges. I love it!|
|And this is my very sweet, kind & talented friend, Jan, from Gracie’s Cottage. She also sets up at the Elkhorn Flea Market and if you’ve been following my blog, you know that I love that flea market.
I’m always so busy chatting with her that I forget to take pictures of her incredible displays!
But I did manage to get one picture this year (below).
Thank you for reading!
