Check out The Porch & Atelier, a wonderful shop that puts the “ooh” in ooh-la-la!
The Porch & Atelier
Lives in/Business located:
In the best place possible; in the third-floor apartment above my shop in a 1902 brick building!/Buffalo, MN
This will be Bonanza vendor appearance:
2! The other was the very first show in Medina!
creating a European/French ambience via vintage finds (without the fleur-de-lis). At Junk Bonanza, you’ll feel as if you’ve found a petite PARIS shop.
Favorite activity besides junking:
anything botanical: gardening, gathering it, decorating with it
Would save if the workshop were on fire:
my bolt cutter. Oh, I was thrilled when I first discovered all the tough stuff it could handle!
You knew you were a junker when:
My sister Mary and I started flea marketing and before I knew it, my garage was FULL.
Three words that describe you:
friendly, balanced, thankful (how boring is that?)
Three words that describe your product:
quality, useful, make-you-stop-and-look stuff!
If you couldn’t be a junker, you’d be:
a French flea marketeer
You couldn’t stand to sell it once you found it:
a simple, one-litre pitcher found in France. I make tea in it, and it’s the one thing I’d cry for if it would break.
We’re all for no-cry shopping, and can’t wait to see you at the Bonanza, where we know any tears will be tears of joy!
