Ahoy, matey! Check out what Donna’s Daughters is setting sail with!
Karla Lewison and Ann Stakston
Lives in/Business located:
Coon Valley and Cashton, WI
This will be Bonanza vendor appearance:
vintage wares, upcycled and repurposed items and painted furniture
Favorite activity besides junking:
Ann: architectural carving
Karla: reading and cooking
Would save if the workshop were on fire:
Ann: wood carving tools
Karla: Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and E6000 glue
You knew you were a junker when:
Ann: her finds outgrew her house and garage and she had to move into a barn
Karla: I have always been a junker. What else is there?
Three words that describe you:
Ann: positive, particular, creative
Karla: creative, enthusiastic, determined
Three words that describe your product:
eclectic, unusual, usable
If you couldn’t be a junker, you’d be a:
Ann: furniture designer
Karla: own a funky diner or cafe
When you found it, you knew it would sell immediately:
Ann: a stash of 3-foot plastic letters
Karla: a large industrial dustpan I turned into a magnetic message center. It sold within hours of putting it in the store.
One of the many hallmarks of junking is how fast you sell an item after it gets on the floor!
We expect there will be a few land speed records set at the Junk Bonanza!
