Welcome to the Bonanza Blog! Here you will find all the latest news about our online marketplace, with timely stories about how to get the most out of your selling online and effectively manage your online shop.
Each year the Bonanza community comes together for Christmas in July. This is the sixth year that the Bonanza community has organized and hosted this sale.

Now is your chance to get all your holiday shopping done early and save big. Many thanks to MyTexasTreasures and all of her elves that helped coordinate this wonderful sale.
Here at Bonanza, our team has been exploring ways to improve the design of important pages on the site. One of the big opportunities on our list was the My Bonanza page. After much research, design, and iteration, we’re excited to have started developing the new page. We’re planning for it to be up and running in the coming weeks.
We'll be keeping you up to date with details about the page launch over the new few weeks. Today, I wanted to share some basic information about the project as well as a sneak peak at the new design.
Why change the page design?
The My Bonanza page has an opportunity to display tons of valuable information for both buyers and sellers. We wanted to be sure that all of the information is presented in a way that's easy to understand and act on.

However we also understand that as an entrepreneur you sometimes like to find answers on your own time and that is why we recently directed much needed love to our help pages.
It is no secret that Bonanza is growing at a rapid pace. We have more than double the inventory we had last year and the number of users is increasing aggressively each day.

As the most fashion forward team member, I am your resident source for all the latest trends. That being said, I'm here to discuss a major fashion faux pas and bring some exciting news from the Bonanza Team!
While it's easy to chuckle at how embarrassed Kim Kardashian must have felt this past February when she showed up at a famed fashion photographer's party wearing the same dress as her brother's ex-girlfriend, showing up in the same outfit as someone else is no laughing matter! Everyone knows how incredibly awkward it can be when you accidentally wear the same outfit as another, but it's hard to relate to that situation until it happens to you!
You know the dealio. One outfit. Two founders. This epic walk-off features our very own Founder, Bill Harding vs. our Co-founder, Mark Dorsey. Both are sporting Bonanza's original "Mongoose Space Needle Tee Shirt." So who wore it best?
While you can appreciate the accessories Mark has chosen, you may notice a huge rip in his jeans. Ummm hello??? Nirvana broke up... (continued)
