Leading off this week’s four vendor profiles is Ann Huffman of St. Joseph, Mo., a first-time vendor and shopper and full-time junker and creator!
Loves all but specializes in: crusty hardware and wire, old books and vintage clothing.
It all started with: “My search for an antique bed back in 2000, though I grew up surrounded by my mom’s wonderful collection of antiques.”
What she’s bringing to the Bonanza: Original tiaras made from old hardware and jewels.
Why a pair of French chairs with heart-shaped backs was her best find ever: “I removed the dusty old needlepoint covers that had been poorly tacked on and sold them for more than I paid for the chairs, then kept the beautiful chairs for my entry hall.”
Can’t junk without: “My Garmin, the GPS system that gets me to all the places on my hunt so I don’t get lost!”
Find her goods: Rusty Chandelier in St. Joseph and at her site, A Vintage Mood.
Check the blog tomorrow for a Lucky Friday update! And don’t forget to set your personal navigation systems for the Bonanza in Shakopee, Minn. It’s only 45 days away!
Your work is lovely!
I look forward to see your set up and creations!
The days are counting down!
Thank you so much, Lisa. It’ll be here in the blink of an eye! Can’t wait to meet you.
And I look forward to meeting you both!
One of the best parts of the Bonanza is meeeting the creative minds behind the businesses, and making new friends!
Here’s to new friends!
