You all know Etsy will be in the house during the Junk Bonanza!
The premier online marketplace of hand-crafted and vintage goods will be curating a special shopping experience with vintage goods from seven of its vendors. But that isn’t all they’ve got up their collective sleeve!
Meet Nickey Skarstad!
Nickey, a St. Paul native, is an Etsy seller education specialist. She works to help sellers make their livings running creative, independent businesses. She shares tips on Etsy’s blog, in a biweekly newsletter called Etsy Success (you can sign up for it at the Bonanza and be entered to win a $100 Etsy shopping spree!) and hosts live online labs/workshops!
It’s her job to educate those who want to sell online, and offer encouragement along the way.
So stop in and see her and the team in the Bonanza’s Side Building!
Ask questions and pick up some tips!
You can sign up for a free, 15-minute one-on-one consult to either help you get started with your online business, or learn more about how to maximize it!

Nickey’s background is in publishing, marketing and online programming.
A Bonanza vet, she is looking forward to a repeat performance!
“I had the pleasure of attending Junk Bonanza for the first time in 2011,” she said. “As a fellow vintage seller (see her shop at, and appreciator of any and all things ‘junk,’ it was a wonderful experience.”
And she has a game plan, too:
“You can be sure my suitcase will arrive in Minnesota empty and head back to New York City very full this year. As a Minnesotan (originally from the Twin Cities but working for Etsy in Brooklyn), I especially enjoyed the nice vendors and the Bloody Mary bar.”
Before you belly up to the bar, stop by Etsy and spend some time with Nickey!
