A reprised and revised poem from the Bonanza archives!
(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 sidewalk-chalked 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!
A new tunnel will lead from the Expo to Main/
We will pay not one jot of attention to the forecast of rain!/
Wagner SprayTech will demonstrate spraying/
An upholstery session will keep you all staying/
Mesmerized in your seats!/
Our workshop instructors accomplish great feats!
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!)
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!
