Newbie vendor Relic Charm
‘s daughter-father duo, Jenny Kroeger
and Lonny Piche
, are full-time junkers, retailing from their space at J & E Antiques in St. Paul, Minn.
In the genes: “My dad, Lonny, has been doing this for almost 40 years so I have grown up surrounded by antiques.”
Family affair: Lonny’s brother Dave got started when Ely, their father, “thought it would be nice to have help moving all that big furniture!”
Bringing to the Bonanza: “Still getting our Bonanza pieces together so we will have to wait and see. Did find some fantastic things on our trip to the East Coast, though!”
Best junking find: Great metal flourishes with a yellow paint patina on them “that are just fabulous and such a fun color.”
Can’t junk without: A truck to get it all back to the shop in!
We hope you’re arranging transport for all of the fun finds you’ll be hauling home from the Junk Bonanza!
