Junk Bonanza Mania

It is that time again!  I eat, sleep and live by all things Junk Bonanza.  I keep thinking it should get easier since we are going on our 7th year, but it is like planning a brand new event every year. I am darn lucky to have a great team and brilliant vendors and artisans on board. Can't wait to see everyone!

PS Looks like folks are coming in from all over the country based on Early Bird Ticket sales.  Don't miss out on the mini-donuts

Flea Market Style Winter Cover

Yay! The 2012 Winter FMS Cover is printing!  It took an extraordinary and talented team  to make it happen and I am grateful to all.  Look for Winter FMS on newsstands at the end of August or maybe even sooner at small retailers. No time to rest, because we are already working on the Spring 2013 issue along with our new title, Weddings Flea Market Style.  For updates, check out our website here.
