Happy July junkers!
I have two more Junk Bonanza vendors to introduce to you! The first is Dawn Fellows of Storehouse. Dawn was a first time Bonanza vendor last year. She loved her first day as a vendor, especially watching the frenzy of people rushing by her booth in the tent area, eargerly trying to reach the “good stuff” inside only to return to the tent after realizing their was equally as much “good stuff” out there! *Remember that Bonanza shoppers…..tent vendors have awesome junk too! Dawn is looking forward to seeing customers return from last year.
Dawn is hoping to offer a black side and a white side to her booth with bits of color mixed in with each. She is committed to selling her merchandise at affordable prices and loves the perfectly imperfect. Dawn describes her style as primitive and a little rough around the edges.
When not selling her perfectly imperfect, rough around the edges wares, Dawn is an Operations Coordinator for a business in southern Minnesota. She dreams about one devoting her time to selling vintage full-time and is even exploring the idea of starting an occasional sale concept in her hometown of Blue Earth, Minnesota.
The second vendor, Itsy Bits and Pieces, is actually a mother/daughter team. Mom Linda got into the junk business when she was a floral designer and began hunting for vintage containers to use for her arrangements. Her daughter Liana joined Linda in business nine years ago when she was just a teenager. Together they sold vintage items on eBay and in a few shops, including the monthly sales at Haupt Antiek Market. This will be the teams’ third year selling at the Junk Bonanza!
Itsy Bits and Pieces is known for selling lots of unique and unusual small pieces – ephemera, game pieces, jewelry, hardware, letters and numbers (oh, be still by heart – I love that kind of stuff!). They might also have mentioned that they are planning to sell all sorts of wonderful antiques – an old galvanized barn cupola with a weathervane, furniture and industrial items. A few special items they are planning to bring include, a large lot of unusual National Cash Register price stampers and a beautiful lot of 1874 hand colored maps! Ok, who’s going to beat me to this booth?? I dare you!
Only 71 days until Junk Bonanza 2010!
