I Won An Award At Marburger!

Okay I'm not sure some people would be flattered to win an award for being the #1 Junker at Marburger, but if you know the context of the word "junker" in the circles I travel in, then you know it's a good one. I'm sure most of you are familiar with the JunkMarket Girls~~Sue Whitney and Ki Nassauer. They've been featured on HGTV many times and have written two books on re-purposing "junk" into treasures. Well, Sue was at Marburger doing a book-signing and giving demos on several of their projects. She also walked the show looking for booths that featured treasures made from salvaged materials and gave out awards to a few select dealers. And...looky looky~~I got an award for the potting table Mr. Pea and I made from an old dresser and various pieces and parts!! I was super flattered and even teared up!! Check it out~~I got a trophy cup, a best-in-show pin and an autographed card showing what I won for. How cool is that?

Thanks Sue! For more info on the JunkMarket go to

Congratulations, it's the little things in life, right, but to us in the junk biz this means alot.

Ki and Sue once visited my shop when they were just getting started, with their old buddy Tom, the super picker. It was fun for me too then.

Great blog and remember, you can never have enough junk.

Shelley, You are so deserving of this award. Your booth looked fantastic and I hope you did well despite the trailer problems. I really want to go and probably will before I am too old to get around. I am excited for more pictures of your shop! I want to steal your ideas!
