The Junk Bonanza is pleased to feature a select group of hand-craft artisans in its first Portland show! Meet Holly and The Tin Pony Soap House!


Holly Grippe

Business name:

Tin Pony Soap House

Live in/Business located:

Springfield, OR

Your style in three words:

rustic, Southwest, eclectic


On your junking bucket list:

the whole state of Texas

You knew you were a junker when…

…I was a little kid; I used to drag home scrap wood and tumbleweeds. I would paint them and make art pieces.

Best all-time junking find:

I am in love with so many of my pieces but I would have to say my 1950s draft table; it’s simply the coolest desk I have ever seen and totally one of a kind.


You wish you would never have parted with…

…my 1927 Singer sewing machine and my 1950s refrigerator with stainless steel lazy Susans instead of shelves.

Bringing to the Bonanza:

handcrafted, rustic, all-natural artisan soaps and organic balms

You never junk without…

…my truck


In your garage: cars or junk?

Who puts cars in a garage?

No one would ever guess you…

…oh, so many things…


 Your junking holy grail:

I want an old 1920s Ford tractor.

..Junking makes you feel…

…creative and connected to the past.
