Sue Whitney is the founder of JUNKMARKET as well as The American Junk Club, an online community for junkers only. She is the co-author of Decorating JUNKMARKET Style and Junk Beautiful: Room by Room Makeovers with JUNKMARKET Style. Whitney lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Kimberly Melamed earned a degree in journalism and communications from Arizona State University and studied interior design at The Art Institutes International. She lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 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.

I was disappointed in this Magazine. You would have to go to a bad salvage or wrecking yard to get some of this stuff. It's ugly no matter what color you spray paint it. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Linda K.
