The famous Junk Bonanza vintage market, founded in Minnesota in 2006 by Ki Nassauer, is coming to our neighborhood! I’m thrilled to be participating as a seller, along with an amazing group of vintage vendors (I don’t mean that we’re vintage …). The show is right around the corner, March 20-22nd at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, a new venue added this year to the growing Junk Bonanza line-up. And our store is literally right around the corner (less than a mile away) … so plan to make a day, or a weekend, of it and come play with us! I also contributed a local’s list of fun places in the area to shop, dine, sip & chill … see you there!
We’re often asked about the history of the old items we sell, but it’s rare that bios come along with them. Believe me, we ask, but often it’s hearsay or speculation. Sometimes, we get lucky and we find something at the original source … a shut-down factory or grandpa’s old workshop … where provenance can be revealed. But most often it’s left to our imagination and sometimes more fun that way.
Excited to announce our outpost in Long Beach, California’s coolest new venue … Urban Americana! An awesome 16,000 square foot mid-century warehouse, filled with antique dealers, artisans & vintage inspired goods.
UPDATE: Our shop at this location is now closed. But Urban Americana remains a great shopping destination.
Cedros Avenue is the ultimate strolling street, filled with independent shops, boutiques, cafes and even an urban winery & a craft brewery! Come help us ring in some holiday cheer this Saturday. We’re stocking up at SoLo all week, so get your gift on! Shop local!
Stay tuned … new items to be added to the website all week!
Oh, what a welcome sight on a hot summer night … a neon BAR sign complete with requisite martini glass! Refreshment awaits behind that brick and glass block.
With a nod to the classic cocktail culture, Jennifer Price Studio will soon be stocking artisanal drink mixers and nibbles to complement our array of vintage bar and glassware.
Small-batched, handcrafted bitters and syrups, gourmet “beer nuts”, olives and chocolate will share the shelves with our vintage French café ware, “Mad Men” highballs, martini shakers, carafes and wine buckets. Muddlers, citrus juicers and other necessary tools will complete the picture.
We’ve chosen some deliciously creative cocktail complements so far, but are open to suggestions for more handmade products with cool packaging … and if they’re local, even better! Please shoot me a line if you have any ideas. Cheers!
