My wife of 36 years, BJ, and I started combining junk into furniture in college. We could find junk, but had no money for furniture. Sometimes strangers would knock on our door and say, Weve heard you had cool stuff, can we see it?
For the last 5 years weve had an antique shop in Hogansville, GA a small town. People bring us furniture to makeover, and we use parts to build new creations and to repurpose and reclaim. BJ is the main carpenter and Im the main junker/scrounger. We have 100s of glass & brass doorknobs and 1000s of vintage furniture knobs and pulls.
