Don Short of Des Moines, Iowa, calls junking “his day job, 30 days a month and 10 nights a month at West End Architectural Salvage!” An additional peek into his dossier:

Specializes in: “Salvage, design and rebuilding everything into anything!”

From humble beginnings: What started five years ago as a two-weekend tag sale is now a 50,000 square-foot-warehouse with 14 employees.

Best junking find, ever: “Champagne Riddling Racks from France….we have made really cool pieces out of the racks!!”

Bonanza vendor: 5 years.

Best Bonanza memory: In Medina, “watching the rain water, flowing through the tent and making a river around the stuff we couldn’t move!”

Most indispensible junking staple: Cash!!

We hope you have stuffed your wallet with simoleons for your Bonanza experience. We think we’re not going out on a limb to say we’re sure you’ll see something you will covet for your very own!
