@junkbonanza #sandiego welcomes Heartland Vestige!
Carl and Marce Bieneman

Business name:

Heartland Vestige

Live in/Business located:

Julian, CA

Your style in three words:

perfection in imperfection

On your junking bucket list:

to junk our way through every state in the CONUS


You knew you were a junker when…

…the thought of purchasing furniture new began to turn out stomach.


Best all-time junking find:

a Daily-Change Theatre (silent films) sign from the 191x’s; we were unable to find any others like it.


You wish you would never have parted with..

…that darn Daily-Change sign, even though it’s in good hands!

Bringing to the Bonanza:

history for the young and memories for the aged, configured in a way that is relevant and “hip” today

You never junk without..

…each other; we’re a true husband and wife team that relies on the strengths of each other!


In your garage: cars or junk?

It’s more of an ongoing battle in a never-ending war.

No one would ever guess you…

…started by towing a small trailer with a Prius on buying trips to the Midwest, even in the dead of winter.


Your junking holy grail:

to earn the ability to comfortably be full-time junkers before we are senile

Junking makes you feel…

…HAPPY a majority of the time but once in a while some of the other feelings cycle through!








It won’t be long now until we see Heartland Vestige and our other amazing vendors — and YOU! — at the Del Mar Fairgrounds!

Junking Nirvana awaits!
