You Did It! 5,000 Plus Facebook Fans!

In the quick of the night, you quietly pushed the Junk Bonanza Facebook number to and past 5,000 fans!

Here's to the next 1,000! We hope to see you all at the Junk Bonanza Sept. 13.15 at Canterbury Park in Shakopee, Minn., the harmonic convergence of junk and junkers!

Almost 5,000 Facebook Fans!

You know the Junk Bonanza is awesome, and you've got company!

The number of Bonanza Facebook fans continues to multiply!

It's approaching 5,000!

What will it take to hit the magic number? (ably illustrated here by Daffadowndilly Bonanza vendor Cammie Metheny!)

We hope you'll remind your friends and family and those who are fans of vintage to stop by, spend some time and take a moment to share the "Like" !

And while you're at it, check out the Bonanza's sister blog, Flea Market Style! It just surpassed the 5,000-follower mark as well!

Hot Dog! Bonanza Planning in LA!

The most important meal of the day is said to be breakfast, but that's all relative when you've been working hard on Junk Bonanza plans! On this day, Ki and Event Manger Emily found lunch to be of paramount importance!

Here they are at the renowned Pink's Hot Dogs in Hollywood on North LaBrea Avenue! Planning the Bonanza -- contracts, email blasts, budgets et. al. -- is hunger-inducing work!

Emily had the Martha Stewart Dog, distinguished by its relish, onions, bacon, tomatoes and sauerkraut. " Em's verdict: "Sounds wierd; it was good but hard to eat!" Ki opted for the pristine dog, but was cajoled into adding mustard (and at the last minute, onions) by the incredulous counter worker. (Apparently, a well-dressed dog is de rigueur, at least in Hollywood!)
They supplemented with fries, chili-cheese and regular!

Em noted that this meal probably wiped out their caloric burnoffs from the day before; her Hollywood hike (can you see the sign in the background?) and Ki's ride and workout at the horse barn.

Ki and Em have worked together for nine years, and in Ki's words, "we can fill in each other's sentences and usually work in our pajamas all day." Venturing out in real clothes came with a cost this time: Their meter expired five minutes before they finished their yummy hot dog repast! Added Em: "The parking guy gave the ticket to Ki personally!"

Emily is back in Minnesota, but she, Ki and the rest of the Bonanza team are planning away!

Stay tuned for updates on Early Bird tickets, which will be available soon!
