Chris Engstrom and Carla Callies return to the Bonanza for the fourth year as Studio CeCe. Some things you should know about this team from La Crosse, Wis.:

They specialize in: “We’re color experts. Expect to see striking colors in unusual ways.”

Their other “day jobs”: Carla is an interior designer for 32 years. Chris is a free-lance event specialist.

Got their start: While doing a home consult for Chris, Carla asked her if she “wanted to sell any of her loot.”

Best Bonanza piece: A collection of old Minneapolis Star paper route bags.

Bringing to the Bonanza: Decorative tassels made from vintage salt and pepper shakers.

Best find ever: “An Art Deco vanity that was converted to a bar, and hey, it’s for sale this year at Junk Bonanza!”

No time for Bonanza memories: We’ve been so busy helping customers that it’s all a blur!

No one would guess: Carla is fanatic about organizing and decorating her closets and Chris rides her own Harley.

They can’t junk without: Open minds and willingness to dig through stashes of grimy treasures.

Luckily for us, the wonderful vendors of the Junk Bonanza have already done the digging!

All we have to do is show up and enjoy! See you there…in just 4 days!
