Best Use of Junk 

Pam Renner
Good JuJu

1412 West 12th Street | 816-421-1930

Pam Renner found a rusty footstool covered in crushy orange velvet at a garage sale for $4. She spiffed up the metal, re-covered it with cloth, transferred some Kansas City-themed typography onto the new cover, and put it up for sale at her space at the resale mecca Good JuJu. Renner's contagious creativity and energy set her apart amid a cloister of 20 trash-to-treasure geniuses at the store. Many of her items feature garage-sale, Dumpster and curb finds that had received her smart reupholster-and-transfer treatment. But that's not all she does. She recently got her hands on some plain old portraits of women, attached some sassy-patterned bras onto the artwork, and wound up with some spunky décor that raises breast-cancer awareness. With each item, our favorite Good JuJu vendor sticks to a foolproof, two-step plan: Find junk, then give it a happy new life.
