Favorite activity besides junking:
Would save if the workshop were on fire:
This organizing bin (at the top of my profile) made frm cheese boxes has been with me for a long time. I remember very clearly that I paid $9 for it! When I had a store, I kept it behind the counter (to hold office supplies), and refused countless offeres from customers wanting to buy it. It seems silly to say that I would save it but I know you all get it.
You knew you were a junker when:
I really don’t think there was a defining moment. It’s in my blood. To quote Lady Gaga, “I was born this way.”
Three words that describe you:
creative, playful, resourcefuld
Three words that describe your product:
colorful, quirky, clean
If you couldn’t be a junker, you’d be a:
I have to pick one thing? Sorry, I’m a multi-tasker
You couldn’t stand to sell it once you found it:
This red and green felt banner, “Chief Many Horns and the Tomahawks” was rolled up inside a suitcase that I bought at an auction. I had no idea that it was in there until I was sorting items at home after the auction. I love everything about it, and definitely had to add it to my own collection. Rumor has it that his was a name of a musical band in Wisconsin. I don’t have any confirmation, but I can picture the fellows in the band, can’t you?
Christine, yes we can, and the guy wailing on the saxophone is playing our song: Junk Bonanza Boogie! Can’t wait until we’re all dancing in the aisles at Canterbury, all shook up with great junking buys!
See you there!
that banner is wonderful!!! look forward to seeing you and your booth
I wouldn’t part with the banner either…It’s FABULOUS!
Glad to see you are joining Junk Bonanza as a vender. See you in September.
My eyes perked right up when I read fabric, notions, and linens. A visit to your booth sounds like a must!
Can’t wait to stop by your booth, Christine…and that banner is pure fun!
