nightbefore

A reprised poem from the Bonanza archives, revamped for 2015!

(Can you find the new stanza?!)
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 chalk-lined 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!
In 2014  we heralded lots of new firsts,
(including one, joyfully, that helped to slake thirsts!):
A new Expo Center replaced the old “tent”/
With amenities including a “ladies” and “gents”!/
Joining the great Bloody Mary’s you found at the bar/
was the “Happy Junker” sangria in a cool Mason Jar!/
We can’t wait to see you! It’s all oh-so heady/
Annie Sloan Unfolded stands at the ready/
To pass on some tips re: amazing Chalk Paint®! /
The Bonanza is rocking’ (sedate it just ain’t!)
We’ve got tabletop vintage with ideas galore/
Potting ideas to leave you crying for more/
Fifi O’Neill signing fab wedding books/
And junk that will leave you crying “Gadzooks!”
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!
Kim
