(Kelly, Kay, & Michele M.)
Talking & meeting each other at the airport. Some of the girls knew each other, but many did not. New friendships were formed this weekend :) We had the best time talking, shopping & laughing together! Junkers are the nicest people!!
(Sheri, GiGi, & Marcy meeting)
This was one of 2 Junk Mobiles loaded with suitcases! We all brought an extra suitcase filled with bubble wrap to hold our shopping goodies from the weekend--it's a wonder the van door closed!
...we met for dinner in the courtyard and got to meet Amy (ALVN of WhisperWood Cottage). She's a college prof. who's studying the health benefits of junking! How fun is that?! I had "met" her online, and it was so cool to meet her in person!
After dinner we talked w/ Amy some more, and got to know each other better!
Here's me and Margo (aka Robolady) from Margo's Junkin' Journal!
We laughed and laughed, and shared funny things about ourselves. There was a former beauty queen, someone has an obsession with collecting ranch dressings, one person is a former kissing cousin (!), and another could recite all 50 states in alphabetical order! Names have been omitted to protect the innocent!! :)
After most of the group decided to call it a night, a few of us did a "drive-by" of the Junk Bonanza! We were so excited to go we couldn't wait till the next morning :) We ended up getting to go inside and do a "sneak peek" at the AMAZING junk, AND....
