Junk Bonanza Here I come

As I am preparing to leave the "real job" for a week and doing all the things that it takes, to actually leave it in another's hands. My mind wanders to where I'll be in a weeks time.
My Happy Place :)

Each year I look forward to my northward trek to the
Junk Bonanza in Shakopee, Minn. As a victim of the great Texas Heat wave of 2011, I'm praying for nice Fall-ish temperatures like we had last year.

I not only thrill to browsing all the fabulous junk, picking out my favorite smalls to ship back home and marveling at the amazing displays...
I also meet new friends each year.

Last year I had fun hanging with Tamara from Australia and we met up with these lovely ladies from Junk Fest and elsewhere. We all had a great lunch at Bachman's, after touring the Ideas House that Ki and Cammie had worked on.

Cammie is one of my Junk Bonanza Friends who I enjoy seeing every year, and is an extraordinary finder of fabulous junk! Ask her about the Chocolate cake (that mysteriously disappeared) a few years back.

I enjoy seeing Ki's sister Karla and Ki's daughter Taylor each year and reminiscing about folding 100's of t-shirts a few bonanza's ago. Many of the sewn items you see in the store and in the magazine are Karla's creations.

You can bet I have my Early Bird Tickets, and comfortable shoes for a full 3 days of shopping and visiting fun.

This year I'm looking forward to bringing home not only junk but new friendships, too!
Say hello if we pass! I love talking with readers and fellow junkers. You never know, you might be on my "new friends" list for next year.

Blessings, Margo

I hope you have just as much fun if not more than you did last year. I will console myself with some great annual garage sales near here on the same weekend as the Bonanza. But, some day I will meet you in Minn!!
