Junk Bonanza with a Friendly Surprise

We had planned on going to the San Diego Junk Bonanza for several weeks. We tend to be a bit spontaneous so what we "plan" and what we actually end up doing can be two different stories. Luckily this story had a happy ending and not only did I find more treasures but I was also pleasantly surprised to see a friendly face.
Jo Packham was signing copies of her magazine at the show. I worked with Jo designing the packaging for her first line of Sizzix craft dies. More recently, I shared a Sizzix demonstration booth next to hers at the Craft and Hobby Association trade show. So it was a wonderful surprise to see her listed as the special guest signing autographs at the show.

My Childhood Memories were Featured

I received an email telling me that had featured one of my previous posts. Of course this made me curious so I just had to check this out.
The post they featured was about how I had found items at an estate sale that brought back memories of my childhood. My father had a similar airplane wing lamp in brown. The Bakelite adding machine makes the most amazing clicking, cranking, snapping sounds that reminds me of Sunday mornings when my father would do his bookkeeping.

If you get a chance, check out MegaEstateSales and read their 101 Reasons to Love Estate Sales. The reasons are all so interesting.

Personally, I don't need all 101 reasons to love estate sales. I would go to them just for the fun of it.

Have fun!
