Dynamic duo/mother-daughter team, Itsy Bits and Pieces, has been laying in a great junk supply for the Bonanza! Check out the chippy orange lockers that will be coming to Canterbury Park!
Linda and Liana Dresselhaus
Itsy Bits and Pieces
Lives in/Business located:
Rosemount and LeSueur, MN/shows and online
This will be Bonanza vendor appearance:
vintage ephemera and supplies for the artist, collector and crafter. We try to find unique and unusual things and fill up our big revolving hardware bin! We are junkers and are also always on the hunt for farmhouse, cottage and industrial wares for the home.
Favorite activity besides junking:
Both: Creating artwork and unique pieces for our homes
Would save if the workshop were on fire:
shadowboxes filled with special old family treasures
You knew you were a junker when:
We started curb picking when Liana went dumpster diving in a miniskirt while Linda held her feet.
Three words that describe you:
creative, artistic, kind
Three words that describe your product:
eclectic, fun, creative
If you couldn’t be a junker, you’d be:
When you found it, you knew it would sell immediately:
an old barn cupola
You couldn’t stand to sell it once you found it:
vintage Christmas ornaments and old buttons
You didn’t think it would ever sell:
a huge, heavy chippy old farm cupboard that once trapped us in a stairwell when setting up for a sale
Ah, trapped in the stairwell by unwieldy furniture! A common junker hazard! We hope you know we’ve cleared the aisles to ensure you’ll have wide berth as you stalk your junk quarry at the Bonanza!
I am just connecting the dots as I read these profiles….love, love, love this booth!
Can’t wait to see what is in that revolving bin this year! And all of the other treasures too.
Linda & Liana, I adore your booth and you two are so sweet! Congrats on your write up in Somerset HOME magazine! Whoo hooo! Your booth is always fantastic!
I’ve bought more than a few Itsy Bits and Pieces from you two. I like your space A LOT! See you at Junk Bonanza.
Oh Yay!! The hardware bin is “the” bin to check out for small, fun and unusual items for crafting. Can’t wait to see what’s in it this year 🙂
Thanks so much for the wonderful feature! We can hardly wait to go to this year’s Bonanza!
looks fabulous – just my kind of junk! unfortunately I am half way across the country so won’t be there in body…only in junking spirit!
diving head first in a mini skirt-that is the spirit….
What’s not to love about these two wonderful and very talented women?! I own some of their wonderful wares and I feel honored to call Linda a friend, but I draw the line at both wearing a mini skirt and having her hold my ankles while I dive in a dumpster…good thing she has her beautiful daughter for that!
I just found you via Itsy Bits & Pieces, and love good junk! I’m gonna follow you now.
I’m glad you escaped the cupboard and survived to tell the tale….
Itsy Bits & Pieces is great 🙂
