You knew you were a junker when:
Mike: I bought my first antique when I was 13 and that was a start of the adventure.
Janet: when I met my husband he sucked me right into the disease. We still love it together, 29 years later.

worth looking at

If you couldn’t be a junker, you’d be:
Mike: a brain surgeon or a bum
Janet: a drug counselor
When you found it, you knew it would sell immediately:
Janet: I found a goat-riding cart from the Masons or Odd Fellows. I knew it was a winner and it was. My husband thought I was crazy.

You couldn’t stand to sell it once you found it:
Mike: That’d be my wife. I could never get rid of her!
The Browns are a fabulous couple, and a fabulous couple of junkers! Be sure not to miss them at the Bonanza!
