Rivertown Antique Company
owners Marv and Linda Kangas
are hard at work at their Zimmerman, Minn., home, prepping for their fifth Junk Bonanza appearance!
Their niche: Primitives, pine, painted, galvanized, quirky, urban barn.
Collecting bug bit: 40 years ago.
Piece people competed for last year: “A green chippy tool cubby. Several people wanted it! That’s the fun part, when you’ve hauled it, washed it, repaired it, lacquered it, and then it is coveted by many!
They haul furniture in: “A two-wheeler and a four-wheeler that we take everywhere.”
Where they sell: Buffalo (Minn.) Nickel Antique Market and in Walnut, Iowa, every Father’s Day.
Linda’s funniest Bonanza moment: “Last year, while hauling in during the set-up, one of the piece’s legs came off as I was rolling in into the building. All the stuff I had piled on top when flying! Embarrassing!”
We look forward to seeing you at the Bonanza Sept. 15-17, where today’s (mis)adventure becomes next year’s fun memory!
