After much thought and the realization of just how much work it will be to re-photograph and write up descriptions for every item (and we have a lot), I have decided to re-open the Bonanza store. The fees aren't terrible, and that way everything can be centrally located and easier to sort through. If you are interested in any of our items currently for sale, please check out our Bonanza Shop, and I would strongly encourage you to check back weekly to see what else I've added (as I have time)!

I have several pounds of tumbled sea glass. Most of this glass comes from a farm dump site in rural Minnesota that was used from the 1800's until the early 1960's. The glass comes from a variety of bottles, jars, and miscellaneous items. They are carefully removed from the dump dig site and tumbled in a rock tumbler for several weeks. They aren't "natural" sea glass, they aren't from the ocean, or even a lake, but they are the ultimate in recycled. Every piece in my collection is one more piece removed from the environment (consider it pollution removal). Use them for jewelry, wire wrapping, wedding or sea-themed party decorations, mosaic pieces, arts and crafts projects, or anything you can imagine. They are rinsed in clean water after tumbling but are not drilled or otherwise modified. The quarters in the photos are for size comparison only (not included). Shipping is based on weight. I do use flat rate when available to cut down on the cost. As always, pick up in Brainerd is free. Let me know if you see something you'd like to purchase!

Our Thrift Shop
OK, so we don't actually have a brick and mortar thrift shop, but after over a decade of selling on various venues online, it almost feels like it.
