Favorite activity besides junking:
I love to read, garden and spend time with friends and family.
Would save if the workshop were on fire:
my little pug Mimi in one arm and my iPod. Mimi gives off such happy vibes and my music keeps me moving.
You knew you were a junker when:
It was back in the ’70s and I just loved finding great old stuff at garage sales, auctions and antique stores. it was a matter of being able to decorate my home affordably with unique finds.

Three words that describe you:

Three words that describe your product:

If you couldn’t be a junker, you’d be:
an interior designer, avocado rancher or a tour guide at Glensheen Mansion
You couldn’t stand to sell it once you found it (but did anyway):
I found a fantastic mohair chair in wonderful condition from the ’40s. It was soooo comfortable that I actually fell asleep in it at the end of one of my sales. Just when I decided that I had to keep it, a young girl came along and wanted it for her first apartment. I knew it was going to a good home but it was hard to part with it. I will always remember that chair.
We know Claire, and we know she has a knack for finding pieces just like the coveted mohair chair! Looking forward to seeing them at the Bonanza!
