Corralled for a brief moment: Emily, Lorraine, Kathie, Irene, travis, Nancy and Carly!
It takes a village, or rather, an army, to produce the Junk Bonanza!
You know many of the team members from posts about planning meetings, but please meet the incredibly talented and hard-working group without whom the Bonanza would never happen!
Junk Rev store vets Taylor and Karla!
Vanessa traveled all the way from L.A. for this!
So did Tyson, who shared the FleaQuest desk and devised alternative traffic patterns for stampedes of Bonanza customers!
A trio of first-time Bonanza volunteers: Leigh, Travis and Kate!
Promoter, announcer and Lucky Friday impressario John Whaley!
Utility players Lorraine and Laura in the Junk Rev store!
Operations Manager Irene Standa juggled tasks and issues with skill, humor and impressive aplomb!
There are a few handy tools in her workbox as well: An apron with deep pockets…
… and a loaded holster!
Kathie Case multitasked from the Information Desk/slash/parapet with steely precision, all sheathed in a wonderful demeanor!
FleaQuest rep Tieran shared a brief moment with Emily, the event manager, and Karla, who marshals the Junk Rev operation, before the store opened Thursday!
There are also a host of paid volunteers who contribute to the Bonanza’s success!
We are oh-so-thankful for their contributions!
OMG!!!!We had the best time at Junk Bonanza!!! This was our first year and we so thrilled we drove the 7 hours from Chicago. Awesome show!! I can’t wait to post on my blog all my treasures. Thanks for being the hosts with the most!!! We had a great girlfriend road trip!!!
As usually it’s all a well oiled machine. Kim, you forgot to post a pic of yourself 🙂 I so enjoyed visiting with everyone this year. It’s hard to believe it’s over. Everything was great, and I found fabulous stuff to take home to Texas.
Love you all,
Now I am thoroughly bummed out seeing all of the fab pix and reading the great reviews. My sister and I had early bird tickets then could not attend.We’ll be there next year! I’ll be coming all the way from Toronto,Canada too! I did get to meet the wonderful and creative Teresa of Porch and Atelier at her Buffalo, MN shop the week before.What a dynamic, creative woman. Both of your creative spirits are being reflected in my own brick and mortar antiques booth in Canada and in my etsy shoppes for sure!Already looking forward to fall 2013!!!!! BarbaraDoone xo
