Retailers are starting to Get It

Looks like retailers are starting to "get it" check out this article excerpt from today's Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Coming soon to a Bachman's near you: the junk aesthetic.

The retailer confirmed it has hired Junk Revolution entrepreneur Ki Nassauer (www.junk to advise, locate and help develop lines of repurposed and new vintage decor, gift and garden items for its six floral, gift and garden centers. The concept, expected to roll out by the last weekend in March, starts with the flagship Minneapolis store and garden centers in Plymouth and Eden Prairie; it's slated to be in the Maplewood, Apple Valley and Fridley stores by the end of July.

Just to clarify, They are using REAL JUNK. Right now the buyer is combing the country looking for those wonderful stashes of great stuff.

Margo, thank you for your kind words the other day. I'm better, God is good and He is good all the time. You are just as creative and inventive like the best of them. You take junk and make it become something I want to showcase in any place in my house. You should become a picker for those folks, you got the nack too.Blessings, Marta.
