Dreamin’ of the Junk Bonanza & A GIVEAWAY!!

Today I am dreaming’ of the junk bonanza… I can feel the excitement building… The sheer joy of junking in three HUGE protected buildings at Canterbury Downs… The incredible talent and inspiration on display… The unexpected and extraordinary!

I am so excited… That I think it’s time for a giveaway!!! Please keep reading for more details!! (I’m sorry! Thanks for all of the amazing comments, the giveaway is over!) The winner is posted here.

Is it your dream to attend Junk Bonanza? What is your hesitation? Do the early bird tickets give you that wishful longing feeling? Have you wanted to attend a dynamic junking event in the past, but it just hasn’t worked out yet?

Are these questions racing through your mind? I desperately want to, but I don’t have anyone to attend with. I am not sure where to go, what to do? I live out of state and want to shop but, but I know I can’t fit my items in my carryon?

Well, my friend Linda can provide you with a DREAM experience to Junk Bonanza & solve all of your concerns!


Linda has created a retreat out of attending Junk Bonanza called Live, Love, Junk! Where junking meets art, retreat style!

The event is 6 weeks away and I would like to help spread the word! We want to help every person who has a dream to attend, be a part of the retreat!

This early bird ticket could be yours!
