Whew! With the conclusion of @junkbonanza #portland this month, we have completed the four shows of the 2015 calendar year!
We are thrilled to report that three of our amazing vendors worked both Minneapolis shows, as well as those in San Diego and Portland! We salute them! We asked them to tell us why they like to do our show!
MAKESHIFT ACCESSORIES – Devin Johnson
“I enjoy antiques and junk, that’s why I build the kind of jewelry I do. I really only do art shows — this is the only junk show I do. They’re fun in a sense that vendors and customers are friendly. It’s a change of pace from the usual shows, plus I can buy pieces here for my jewelry that I can’t at art shows. Ki promotes really well… .It’s consistent, easy going, people have fun with drinking Bloody Mary’s… you find a lot of things you normally don’t see anywhere else. Ki’s show focuses more on repurposing more than other shows, and she gets the right clientele that enjoys that.”
We thank our hard-working vendors for the props, but would be the first to say, without them, their fellow vendors and their always-fabulous product, we would never be able to put on this show. Hats off to all of our vendors, and a special thanks to these three who have gone the distance — literally — this year!
