@junkbonanza #portland welcomes Aurora Suzette!


Susan DeLaire

Business name:

Aurora Suzette

Live in/Business located:

Chehalis, WA


Your style in three words:

eclectic farm chic

On your junking bucket list:

As I am finally going to Round Top, TX, I’d have to say the Paris flea markets.


You knew you were a junker when…

…I realized I really looked forward to annual ‘free pickup’ days where I used to live. People would throw out some great stuff!

Best all-time junking find:

Oh, I have a nicely framed print of a very fierce looking bird, with the caption ‘Spiritual Purity’ at the bottom that I just adore. I’ve had it for years.


You wish you would never have parted with…

… that old red coat tree!

Bringing to the Bonanza:

Great fall treasures, like a set of lockers, metal chairs, an iron skeleton and geese!

You never junk without…

…high hopes?


In your garage: cars or junk?

Cars, but that’s because it’s built into a hill with no doors. I have two storage units, and a very full basement.

No one would ever guess you…

…went through a phase, (I call it my faux ficus phase) where I bought everything new and shiny. I was a single mom, and finally had a decent paying job. Let’s just say I went down a very dark path.

Your junking holy grail:

hmmm, if I tell you, everyone will want one.


Junking makes you feel…

…soo happy and connected!
