"Gold Rush" Part 2

There was so much to share from our recent trip to Oronoco Minnesota, I decided to make two posts.  While we were there, we were so excited to get to meet Ki Nassauer from Flea Market Style magazine.  She is also the founder of Junk Bonanza, held every year in Shakopee Mn.  If you've never gone to Junk Bonanza, maybe this should be your year.  Ki and her staff were so, so sweet and friendly!  It was very exciting to get to meet her, get autographs, and pictures taken with her.

Um, not the best picture of me, and obviously I didn't get the memo, "not" to wear a tank top.  Anne must of known we would be getting our pictures taken!  Anyway, we were pretty geeked up about this opportunity.  Ki is sort of a celebrity in the junking world!

And now for the Junk Bonanza display, which was awesome.

This is what we needed more of on this trip.  One day was a little crazy, but manageable.

This is Ki and her crew doing a little photo shoot.

This is what our van looked like the first time we packed it.  We had to repack it a few times more.  That's not a bad thing, it just means we had much more to pick up!

This is all just a sneak peak of what will be available this week in the shop.
