Are you looking for decorating ideas that are thrifty, creative, unique, ‘green’ and incorporate vintage finds, and family and salvaged pieces culminating in making your design style come to life?

Junk Bonanza is where you will find the answers to your decorating needs. Juried junk vendors are the masters of repurposing, reusing, reviving, redoing, renovating, reimagining, reinventing, and merchandising thrifty finds in ways that make your decorating gene salivate.

Ki Nassauer, Founder Junk Bonanza

The founder and owner of Junk Bonanza is our very own Twin Cities local Ki Nassauer, also known as junk entrepreneur, editor, author, retailer, founder and owner of Junk Revolution.
