Don Short returns to Junk Bonanza and cable television!

Don Short, owner of West End Salvage (Des Moines, Iowa), a long time favorite of ours and a continual source of entertainment, will again be setting up shop at this fall’s Junk Bonanza.
 
Don is not only entertaining in his booth, he is also entertaining on tv.  His series, “West End Salvage” will again be aired on (station, dates and other information).  People all over the country once more be able to share in his vintage-based remodeling projects/adventures.
 
Don is well-known for his great eye and unbelievable knack for finding remarkable and unusual pieces of history.
 
Even though he can’t bring his four-story building full of treasures to Junk Bonanza, he will be bringing some of his more manageable pieces, his sense of humor, and a plethora of expert advice.
 
If you’re considering a remodeling project, looking for a large, unusual vintage piece, or need something custom crafted out of vintage materials, Don will be there to talk to you about it.
 
Welcome back to our great friend, Don!
