Junk Bonanza welcomes the artistry of Aunt Adeleine’s Vintage Jewelry to the Portland show!

Mary Gilgenbach

Business name:
Aunt Adeleine’s Vintage Jewelry

Live in/Business located:
Cooper Mountain in Aloha, OR

Your style in three words:

Found object jewelry

On your junking bucket list:
to shop the Paris Flea Market and The Rose Bowl Flea


You knew you were a junker when…

I knew I was a junker at age 5. My mom gave me a quarter to spend on our monthly “antiquing” outings with my Aunties.
Best all-time junking find:
14 kt. Elgin pocket watch at the bottom of a button tin
You wish you would never have parted with…
…an extraordinary mother of pearl rosary from France.
Bringing to the Bonanza:
suitcases chocked-full of my found-object assemblage jewelry collection that is thoughtfully curated
You never junk without…
…cash, jewelry loupe and millimeter gauge

In your garage: cars or junk?
junk and cars (I am married and want to stay married).

No one would ever guess you…
…are a slight germ-a-phobe and always have wet wipes in my purse.
Your junking holy grail:

My holy grail find and moment would be finding a hidden treasure inside or attached to a treasure so that I would get that double, holy wow moment!

..Junking makes you feel…
…nostalgic for my Mom and Aunties; in a good way!
