Carla and Amanda at the Spring 2016 Bonanza in front of the yarn bomb project

We’ve heard of planning ahead, and JB fan Carla Kelly has taken that attribute to a new level!

She ordered Early Bird tickets for her and her daughter-in-law for the APRIL 20-22 #minneapolis show in September 2016!

As with so many of our attendees, Carla said the Bonanza is a great way for her and Amanda Kelly, her daughter-in-law, to spend time together, “just the two of us.” They leave from their homes in Hastings and Newport, MN, about 6:30 AM and don’t return until dinner time!

 “After the first couple of Junk Bonanzas (we go to both the Spring and Fall events) it was no longer a question of if we would go next time, but how long we would have to wait. It’s become a tradition for us,” Carla said.

So much so, Carla noted, that she purchased her tickets for the Fall show SEPT. 21-23, in March!

Want to be an early-ordering Early Bird?! You can still get tickets for the APRIL 20-21 show online; they’ll be held for you at Will Call and available for pickup beginning 7:30AM Thursday, APRIL 20! Fall tickets are available here!

Do you have a Bonanza story to share? We’d love to hear!
