Extra, extra! Read all about it!
Yes, that is Junk Bonanza founder and junk entrepreneur, Ki Nassauer, gracing page C11 of Saturday’s Wall Street Journal!
Check out the story
, written by the Journal’s James R. Hagerty, reporter par excellence!
All good journalists follow the story; he went so far as remotest South Dakota to join Ki on a junk jaunt and witness the thrill of the hunt.
Thanks to Hagerty, the fabulosity of junk is getting a national platform!
Watch this space for future posts and pictures from that expedition (though this scribe won’t be able to match Hagerty’s discerning eye for detail — love his description of Victor Settje and his property, where Ki and Bonanza vendor Cammie Metheny of Daffadowndilly’s
scouted for treasure)!
Meanwhile, don’t miss the rockin’ video
, shot for the Journal in Ki’s Los Angeles digs (including some clips from the 2011 Junk Bonanza
), and the swell (six- column!) portrait by Ramona Rosales, captured at LA’s Freeway Building Materials salvage yard.
The Journal and Ki are a harmonious pairing.
The newspaper has called itself the Diary of the American Dream. Our junking’ pal is living it!
Enjoy the read!
