Today the Junk Bonanza wishes a very Happy Anniversary to partners in business and life, Jenni and Ben Mueller of A Vintage Parcel!
Happy #15 to this rocking’ duo, who met on New Years Eve 1995 at a party Jenni was hosting at her parents’ house. Jenni was a senior at Osseo High School where Ben had graduated the year before.
It was a friends setup!
Six years later — 15 years today — they married in Maple Grove!
Now, they make their home in Bloomington. Their vintage business? Thanks to Etsy, it reaches well beyond Minnesota!
“We average about 300 orders a week on Etsy,” Jenni said, where they have “really honed in on vintage smalls and vintage supply. Easy to store and easy to ship!” Thank them when you see them for their great promotion: “We include JB postcards in any order going to the West Coast as well as MN, WI, IA and the Dakotas,” she said. “Not many other vendors do smalls like we do. It started as a hobby and it has turned into a job. We love it!”
Ben is also an engineer by day; Jenni calls vintage the second of her two full-time
jobs: the other is being Mom to son Alex, 8, and the Muellers “other” kid, a Wheaten Terrier named Bailey.
Stop by Booths 71-72 in the Expo and share your good wishes with Ben and Jenni!
How are they celebrating besides working the Bonanza?
They recently traveled to Florida with friends, and “and Ben bought [me] some amazing diamond earrings.”
Fitting for two JB vendors who really shine!
Congrats from Ki and the JB team!
