A reprised poem from the Bonanza archives! See you in fewer than 8 hours!

Twas the night before Bonanza;/
Throughout Canterbury Park,/
Hustle and bustle continued/
Well into the dark!/

When finally, the Ki Shop was totally stuffed/
The masking-taped floors were polished and buffed/
Vendors were finished with gilding their spots/
The building stood silent, awaiting the lots/

Of Early Bird shoppers, and then all the masses/
Of vintage love-lovers brandishing passes/
To enter this heaven, the World Series of Junk!/
Then leave oh-so-happy with it all stuffed in their trunks!

We can’t wait to see you! It’s all oh-so heady/
The team from Hirshfield’s stands at the ready/
To pass on its knowledge (about Cottage Paint!/
The Bonanza is rockin’ (sedate it just ain’t!)

Fabulous vendors! Even more fabulous swag!/
And three days to enjoy it, lest your energy lag!/
So get ready to shop and to smile and to laugh/
And Happy Bonanza from the entire JB staff!
