WHAT:

JUNKMARKET(TM) Masters Ki Nassauer and Sue Whitney are bringing their nationally-recognized brand to Canton’s First Monday Trade Days, as part of the 2007 Country Home magazine Junking Journey. At the Texas stop on the Junking Journey, Ki and Sue will bring to life projects from the pages of Country Home through demonstrations and a project showcase. They will also sell ‘nuts and bolts’ packages to fellow ‘junkers’ to allow them to create some of their most popular projects at home.
