@junkbonanza #portland welcomes new vendor Junque in My Trunk!
Junque in My Trunk
Live in/Business located:
Your style in three words:
vintage, rusty, industrial
On your junking bucket list:
a Hamilton cigarette case with labels. These came with Railroad watches in the early 1920’s.
You knew you were a junker when…
… at 17 I walked into an old Craftsman house in Sunnyside, WA, that was completely furnished with antique settees and armoires. I couldn’t stop looking at all those old pieces of furniture, pictures and hand-painted wallpaper. I was in love with looking for old things from then on. My first find was a set of etched Depression juice glasses with “Father” and “Mother” (I still have these).
Best all-time junking find:
So many, but it would be the 5′ x 4′ stained glass window I’ve moved around with me for 30 years. There were there I found in the rafters of a restaurant that was going to put them in the trash. Can you imagine? IN THE TRASH! I was so lucky that day.
You wish you would never have parted with…
Not too many regrets in this area. I still have things such as my grandmother’s cedar chest and McCoy vases that will always be with me.
Bringing to the Bonanza:
rustic, chippy, vintage, shabby and industrial. I am hoarding the great Junque just for this show.
You never junk without…
… cash and good shoes and a vehicle big enough to fit everything.
In your garage: cars or junk?
Junque and a 1999 Harley Davidson named “Hot Flash”
No one would ever guess you…
… ride a Harley (Hot Flash), and I own a vintage 1974 22′ GMC box van for hauling my junque. Big Bertha’s her name.
Your junking holy grail:
ornate iron gates, chippy side boards and things I’ve never seen before, but just know they are something special.
Junking makes you feel…
… very happy, especially when I find something I have never seen before.
Only 7 more days until the Disneyland of Junk!
