Rose Mille/Stillwater, Minn.
Describe your style in three words:
creative, elegant, vintage
What item or destination is on your junking bucket list?
To ship containers from Europe
You knew you were a junker when…
…I purchased some huge boxes of dishes from a tea salon for $20.
Your best all-time junking find?
The first epic one dropped into my lap. I purchased an entire millinery estate near San Francisco that included over 500 wood hat blocks, thousands of millinery flowers, stock hats, ribbons, trims, beads and fabrics.
You wish you would never have parted with…?
I can’t think of anything; I actually have so much. When I do sell something that I love, I make sure the buyer loves it, too, so no regrets.
Best item you’re bringing to the Bonanza?
Some gorgeous French furniture and, of course, ribbons
You never junk without…?
…Doing my homework and sticking to a budget.
In your garage: Cars or junk?
In my three-car garage: There is one car and lots of projects, including three torn-apart sofas and a Mora clock from Sweden.
No one would ever guess you…?
…used to work in the defense industry as a data input tech.
Welcome, Michelle! The Bonanza is excited to have Rose Mille in the house!
