Welcome, new Minneapolis JB vendor, Minnesota Rust!
Live in/Business located:
Your style in three words:
industrial, primitive, chic
On your junking bucket list:
A large, white pharmacy cabinet with lots of drawers and original glass and labels
You knew you were a junker when…
I saw a large old blue workbench on the side of the road and I tried to put it in the trunk of my car! My small car! It clearly wasn’t possible but I kept trying until someone pitied me, pulled over & offered to load it in their truck and drop it off at my house. I gladly accepted and then bought a very large SUV.
Best all-time junking find:
A beautiful, old wingback loveseat upholstered in a hand sewn quilt — very dusty and dirty but so much love went into making it. People thought I was crazy!
You wish you would never have parted with…
SOOOOO many things! I LOVE every piece I buy! However, there is nothing better than when someone sees a piece you’ve found and they fall in love with it just as you did
Bringing to the Bonanza:
A variety of items! Industrial, primitive and upcycled furniture along with lots of fun accessories and upholstered pieces
You never junk without…
gloves and a flashlight
In your garage: cars or junk?
1,200 square feet of JUNK!
No one would ever guess you…
Used to be a professional figure skater
Junking makes you feel…
Your junking icon:
Wow…I would have to say all of the ladies who junk right alongside me. The way they all see purpose and beauty in things other people are throwing out. I draw inspiration from all of them.
It won’t be long now! Just 9 days until Junk Bonanza!
