Introducing Fig & Farm, a talented duo with a fun story:
Kate Dreyer and Dani Watson
Coralville, IA and Seattle, WA
Your style in three words:
On your junking bucket list:
VW Beetle car door in teal blue! I’d die!
You wish you would never have parted with…
…my (painted white) deer skull with 6 point antlers
Best item bringing to the Bonanza:
a footlocker from WWI (made into a table) or a children’s tea set from 1880?
Dani and I are BFs who used to live in the same town. Then Dani moved to Seattle and we started our junking business in 2013 as a way to fund our plane tickets to see each other! We have a passion for turning junk into treasure with a modro (modern + retro) design aesthetic.
You knew you were a junker when…
…I picked out a broken bird bath out of your neighbor’s garbage (in the middle of the night). Then I fixed up that little gem, painted it in trendy colors and sold it! Note: The neighbor saw the finished product and considered buying it back!
Best all-time junking find:
vintage Coke bottle vending machine
…an imagination! You’ll never know what you find and you’ll never know what the final product will be.
In your garage: cars or junk?
two cars and one trailer containing all junk!
No one would ever guess you…
…have gone junking in heels!
We can’t wait to see what this pair is hauling to the Bonanza!
We’ll know in 10 days!
