It was “Get Lucky” day at the Bonanza! We gave away 40 $25 coupons to attendees to redeem for merchandise in the booths of their choosing!

Efforts to complete our paint-by-number project proceeded apace. Even the Spokane graphic designer who converted photos to paintings, Vanessa Swenson, pitched in!

At 5PM, Ki took the microphone from announcer Tim Luke to share heartfelt thanks to the amazing vendors of JB Portland. They rocked this show with their amazing product, gorgeous staging and great attitudes!

And then load-out commenced! Our vendors pick it, buy it, haul it home, clean it, repair it, up cycle it, transport it, stage it and sell it!

And then, when they are done, they haul it again! With smiles on their faces!

The Bonanza team is pretty experienced at breaking it down, too!

And then, as soon as it started, it seemed, it was over!

Thanks for everything!

Kim for Ki and the JB team!
