A big Bonanza welcome to Winique Antiques, a new JB vendor!
Wendy F. LaEoque-Lundin
Live in/Sells at:
Chaska, MN/Linda’s Cellar in Chaska and The Olde Mill House Antiques and Gifts in Norwood Young America
Your style in three words:
country, cottage, junk
On your junking bucket list:
an Orange Crush thermometer
You knew you were a junker when…
…I made my Dad go with me into the abandoned farmhouse on my Grandpa’s farm to get the old metal bed frame from the upstairs bedroom. PS the house was falling apart and there were bats everywhere.
Best all-time junking find:
I collect iris-patterned depression glass dishes. At a flea market in Florida, I found the sugar bowl at one vendor’s booth and the cover for the sugar bowl at another.
You wish you would never have parted with…
…the stained glass church window from my family’s small country church when they took it down. I was glad to donate it to the Historical Society but would have loved to have put it up in my house.
Bringing to the Bonanza:
ironstone, feed sack pillows, crates, wire baskets, wash tubs, chicken nester, chippy tables, phone stand, stools and much more!
You never junk without…
…my junk survival bag; it is always ready to go. I keep it stocked with a bottle of water, Handiwipes, screw driver, tape measure, health bar, mints and a tablet of paper to record my finds.
In your garage: cars or junk?
No one would ever guess you…
…are part American Indian and taught Ojibwe Language and Culture classes for two years.
Junking makes you feel…
…like I am taking a part of history and giving it new life.
