Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One person's trash is another's treasure. That's a fact of life that the Junkmarket gals know only too well. Through their annual Minneapolis fleamarket, The Junk Bonanza, web site junkmarketstyle.com, and tireless touring, Sue Whitney and Ki Nassauer have helped countless devotees transform junk into one-of-a-kind furnishings and accessories. Working their magic on every room of the house--from kitchen to home office--they present conversational case studies that introduce the clients and explore their needs. With characteristic humor in tow, they take readers through each renovation adventure, from shopping for recycled materials to the actual construction projects. The gals also include complete materials lists, plus paint chips and fabric swatches, so that everything can be recreated down to the last delicious detail.

Book News Annotation:

Following her best-selling Junk Beautiful, Whitney teams up with Kimberly Melamed to show how to turn worthless finds at salvage yards and dumpsters into priceless--or at least decorative and sometimes useful--stuff for patios, porches, backyards, and other outdoor spaces. Among their topics are tea for two, porch for three seasons, cooking poolside, suburban modern, family camp, sweet potting shed, and meditation garden. Detailed instructions are provided for some constructed items. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

About the Author

Hockey-moms-turned-business-partners Ki Nassauer and Sue Whitney scour salvage yards, city clean-ups, and even abandoned grocery stores and bowling alleys looking for trash to rejuvenate into striking home decor. The rubbish renovators operate JUNKMARKET, their workshop and warehouse where they also conduct occasional but wildly popular sales of vintage furniture and their own one-of-a-kind junk creations of furniture and whimsical accessories. In 2004, the JUNKMARKET girls debuted a new gift line in Target Stores. Popularity has spurred a column for "Country Home" magazine, and Nassauer and Whitney also appear on national and regional television shows. In addition, they offer junking seminars for avid followers (their mailing list has grown to 18,000) who are inspired by eclectic tastes from the junking underworld.
