Judi Shackelford, sometimes called “Judi Rhubarb,” is a six-time vendor. Her Rhubarb Company Store has had many venues over the years, but always comes “home” to the Bonanza in September. Some fun facts:

Lives in: Deephaven, Minn., but loves her cabin “up at the lake.”

Junking is: Her day and night job.

Ditched an interior design job after many years: After getting into antiques with a friend. “It was so much fun that I never stopped junking!”

Best Bonanza item: “I did like those old rubber goose decoys last year. Serena from The Farm Chicks liked them, too, and took one home to Seattle to live on the farm!”

Bringing to the Bonanza: Something on wheels.

Favorite find: “A small display case I found up at the lake from a general store in a little town that doesn’t exist any more. I really feel as if I have a piece of history.”

Funniest Bonanza memory: “When we were all wandering around in the dark at Medina. Not funny for Ki, though!”

Doesn’t go far without: An electric screwdriver!

In addition to power tools, we never go far without a game plan for which Bonanza booth to visit first! Have you picked yours yet?!
