What convinced you to exhibit at the Bonanza?

The exclamations of past vendors and attendees!

Your style in three words:
fresh, feminine, fun

What makes you swoon?
It’s difficult for me to walk away from anything horse-related.

You knew you were a junker when…
My husband asked me, “What are you going to do with all this stuff?”

Your best all-time find?
A cool, freestanding metal cabinet that I’ve used as a pantry, china cabinet, linen closet and more.

You wish you wouldn’t have parted with…
My Dad’s baby crib

Best item you’re bringing to the Bonanza?
My flower headbands, of course!

You never leave home without?
A cool headband, music and a change of clothes.

Best bit of repurposing?
Using fun finds all over my home, mostly from my Mom and Dad’s garage, I’m super sentimental.

No one would guess…
I’m a U.S. Army veteran

If you couldn’t be a junker, you’d be a…..?
Professional packer/organizer, skills learned because I have trouble getting rid of something that may come in handy later, but it needs to be tidy until I get to it. Any hoarders/junkers out there, see me!

Derrin, we most certainly will see you! My guess? Your dance card is going to be packed!
Welcome to the Bonanza!
