We left Minneapolis on Wednesday for the Junk Bonanza planning meeting in Los Angeles.
Vice President Biden was in town, his security logistics slightly delaying our flight. Jane made herself comfortable at MSP International in the Lindbergh Terminal…
… and we were lucky to have a great seatmate for the flight out. We met Pam from Champlin, an old movie buff who was headed to LA for a Turner Classic Movie Festival. She likes all vintage stuff, jewelry included. We loved her carryon backpack, all blinged out with classic, flea-market brooches!
Event manager Emily was traveling separately and not arriving until late. But she thoughtfully booked the SuperShuttle for us …
… and soon Ki was greeting us from the uber-cool courtyard of her fab LA digs!
We had dinner in the neighborhood at El Adobe, where we enjoyed our tacos and enchiladas underneath a wall of framed, signed head shots. (President Gerald Ford and Gilda Radner peered over the top of my head!)
Later, after Emily arrived, we got to the business of settling in to Ki’s jewel-box of an apartment for the night. How many Bonanza team members does it take to blow up two air mattresses, anyway?!
Stay tuned for a peek tomorrow at the first day of Junk Bonanza planning! May I just say, it was a long and productive day!
