@junkbonanza #minneapolis welcomes Primitique by Design!
Michele Grant-Shell

Business name:

Primitique by Design

Live in/Business located:

York, NE

Your style in three words:

HeckYa! That Works!


On your junking bucket list:

to have my own, real-life treasure hunt like the movie “The Goonies” or “Monument Men”

You knew you were a junker when…

…as a young girl, I watched my Grandma retrieve rotten bananas from the trash that my Grandfather threw away and she made the most wonderful banana bread, ever. She said “never throw anything away!”


Best all-time junking find:

industrial arches from the Nebraska State Fair

You wish you would never have parted with…

…an upright, rolltop filing cabinet from New York City

Bringing to the Bonanza:

prairie goodness


You never junk without…

…a current tetanus shot vaccination

In your garage: cars or junk?

five garages and not one vehicle inside them

No one would ever guess you…

…can’t run a hammer and nail


Your junking holy grail:

A purchase has to benefit three people: the seller, the buyer and the new owner.

Junking makes you feel…

…like a kid again. There’s treasures in them there hills!




Bring it on, Michele! Ki and the team can’t wait to see you and all of our other rocking vendors Sept. 22-24 at Canterbury Park!

Traveling to the Bonanza? You can find lodging options, here! And don’t forget to order your Early Bird tickets, which offer entrance to the show two hours before the doors open to general admission on Thursday, and are good for regular entry Friday and Saturday. Which is a good deal, as our vendors restock daily!
