Ready to meet a couple more first-timers?
Rachel Rydel sells vintage wares and blogs as Alice and Elsie. A Director of Finance by day, Rachel began doing a “Trash to Treasure Tuesday” post on her blog featuring junk that she had repurposed. When she began selling her repurposed items, along with her handmade vintage journals and scrapbooks in her Etsy store, she officially became a junk dealer!
Rachel plans to have lots of old books (some repurposed into journals), pretty flowery china, great kitchen items, packs of ephemera, religious items, small painted wood treasures, old linens and mirrored trays. Make sure to stop by the Alice and Elsie booth and welcome Rachel!
The partners Karla Lewison and Ann Stakston will be vendors at the Junk Bonanza under the name Donna’s Daughters. Karla actually owns and operates a store of the same name in southwest Wisconsin. The store sells upcycled creations, vintage and antique items. Karla favors metal junk and old books – anything that she can turn into something fun and useful.
After spending the previous two years as a Junk Bonanza shopper, Karla is excited to bring her friend Ann to her first Junk Bonanza! Karla describes Ann as “the ultimate picker”. A full-time nurse, Karla multitasks by running a Scandinavian cottage on her farm and hosts an annual Barnyard Sale each Fall. Ann’s specialty is painted chippy furniture, kitchen utensils and linens.
Just about 17 days until Junk Bonanza 2010~
