Mad Men alert! Returning Bonanza vendor LaDeeDa Design is ready to transport you to a very stylish place!
Lives in/Business located:
White Bear Township, MN/I create and produce in my home/workshop, but sell in some fabulous boutiques and fabulous events, listed on my blog.
This will be Bonanza vendor appearance:
upcycled and one-of-a-kind clothing, textiles and accessories
Favorite activity besides junking:
spend time with my not-so-nuclear family
Would save if the workshop were on fire:
my collection of Atomic-era bark cloth fabric and a Titanic-era silk beaded Grecian column-style gown
You knew you were a junker when:
Hmmm, much as with the diagnosis of a medical condition, I learned of or was diagnosed as a junker soon after Ki brought together a collection of people with the same symptoms and then gave it a name.
Three words that describe you:
creative, trusting, roguish. Some people refer to my roguishness as being oppositional. I can accept that.
Three words that describe your product:
imaginative, stylish and always wearable
If you couldn’t be a junker, you’d be:
I feel as if you just asked me what I want to be when I grow up. I didn’t know what to say when I was 5 and I don’t know now!
When you found it, you knew it would sell immediately:
a 1960s brown leather bowling bag. The woman who bought it used it for a purse!
Lori, will you be bringing more like it to the Bonanza? Can’t wait for a major style injection once LaDeeDa’s back in the house!
