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