Junk Bonanza

If I might put all my memories in little compartments...
like the tins I saw
at the show on Friday, they might include:
  • Meeting & chatting with Ki - the show's founder,  she truly makes you feel like the one & only (in a crowd of thousands).
  • Sharing hugs with many of the folks on my "Places I like to Visit" blog list. - wow, these are my mentors, inspiration points, gurus! 
  • Seeing friends, out on "the hunt" too.
  • Finding treasures - some to keep, some to share.

Here's a little peak inside Friday at Junk Bonanza in Shakopee, Minnesota.

I must add one final little note...
This past week I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease -
seems I had a tussle with a teeny tiny deer tick, and it won.
I have been so very exhausted lately, and now know why.
So -- I awoke on Friday, had the day to go to Junk Bonanza,
but couldn't quite imagine the 4 hour round trip drive.
So, my Dave, ever my junk partner - offered to get me there & home.
Now, mind you, men are the minority at Junk Bonanza --
so I was a bit concerned about what he might do for the time I was there.
Well, we got there, Dave loved it! -- even found several
fishing items that were keepers.
At one point I am quite certain he even may have "ditched" me.

smile, smile, smile
fun day

Did you get to Junk Bonanza?

Jealous! Sounds like you had a great time! Julia

I'd love to hit Junk Bonanza one day, or any other of the wonderful junk parties they throw in that neck of the woods. I'm glad you got to attend.

By the way, my mother's husband has contracted Lyme disease 3 times and has caught it early enough to fend it off with antibiotics each time. I hope you have the same experience (the early detection, not the 3 bouts). It is very dibilitating, I've seen it.

so good to meet you at the Bonanza!!!

...sorry to hear about the lyme disease. I will be praying for you... :) Junkers Stick Together :)

Jill said...

Oh that is too bad about the Lymes disease, I'll say a prayer for you too. How wonderful though that you were able to go to Bonanza anyway! Someday I'll get to go!

Not rain, nor sleet, nor even snow --- nor a little crappy tick can keep me from my appointed rounds! Thanks for the sweet wishes -- feeling a tad bit better, come on tiredness, I have a Barn Sale to ready for!!

Janelle -- great to meet you at Bonanza -- love the sap bucket I adopted from your wonderful booth.

Julia & Cheryl & Jill -- Bonanza is really worth a visit if you ever can get there.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

So sorry to hear about the Lyme, my d-i-l's Father has been dealing with it for years and finally found the right specialist. (If you need info convo me and I'll get the name).

Do you have space in the mall in Hixton?


Kari from Meadowview Farm said...

Thanks for the note...and yes, that is me in Hixton. Also --- love, love, love the feed sack bag I bought from you!!

Gracie's Cottage said...

Wow Kari...what amazing stuff you have in Hixton, and so beautifully displayed! We shopped your case and then ran to your space to grab some more goodies - loved it!


Diane said...

Kari I do hope you are feeling better! Had high hopes to go to Junk Bonanza this year but manditory overtime and no vacation time allowed for Sept. kinda shot that down. The good news is that leaves more in my pocketbook to spend at the barn sale. See you in October.
