I just got back from 4 amazing days in Shakopee Minnesota.
I am still recovering 🙂
One part of my adventure was the Live, Love, Junk Retreat where was blessed with hanging out with 6 insanely funny (and extremely talented) ladies (only one was someone I already knew) and laughed until my face hurt. New friendships, new skills, and life-lessons were cultivated and will last a lifetime. More on my new friends/sisters later.
The second leg of the adventure was the Junk Bonanza.
OMG. Can you say “in heaven??” It was simply amazing. Housed at Canterberry Downs, it is ACRES of pure vintage junking bliss. My only wish was for more time and MORE MONEY. I am SO going back in April!
Give me some old ammo boxes, some metal bedsprings, and an 1950’s furnace casing and I’ll “let ‘er buck.” I could spend hours watching American Pickers or Storage Wars Texas and relish people creating awesome stuff out of what others would deem as “landfill fodder.” Junk is my “thing” so the Junk Bonanza was like Nirvana for me.
One of my new Live, Love, Junk soul sistas has excellent pictures that capture the true Junk Bonanza experience. Better than anything I could muster up, so I will tease you with a few of hers, then you REALLY need to visit her Cherish Designs blog for the “full effect.”
