They are smaller than they appear in picture, but still like them very much. Understated and that is what I am looking for.

About

Kismet Junk: The Journery to Reclaim

Kismet Junk has one mission: to repurpose vintage and discarded items. Owned by Erik and Stacey Olson, this husband and wife team discovered they both enjoy hunting for treasures. Each begin raised by 'somewhat' collectors, they learned early how to see the value in things others may not.

Erik is a third generation auctioneer. He spent his childhood attending and working at auctions. He developed an appreciation of history and loves to learn the story behind the treasures he finds.

Striving to collect was ingrained into Stacey since an early age. Over her life she has collected many things, such as postcards,shot glasses, vintage cameras, and books. Now she has learned to trim back her collections and only keeps items that truly speak to her or hold sentimental value.

Together, they scour auctions, barns and estates to find hidden treasures.Their weekends are often spent at trolling thrift stores, hitting garage sales and shopping the flea markets. It doesn't stop there. Evenings are often spent researching. repairing, and cleaning their new finds. Erik restores furniture and Stacey creates earrings using vintage jewelry. Its what they do for fun. Often, they recruit one of their four children to help unload the truck or set up at markets. Its truly a family business where everyone is put to work.

Kismet Junk sets up Pop-up shops at many outdoor markets around Illinois. You can find their '2014 World Tour' schedule and follow their journey on Facebook or the their blog

Kismet Junk - Its the junk that you were meant to find. Its your fate. Its Kismet!

  • Stacey Olson

    Owner, Treasure Hunter

    Stacey is a treasure hunter, always searching for items to add to her home. A home reflects its family, and her family of six (plus pets) is fun, unique and eclectic. Each item tells a story of who you are. What does your home say about you?

  • Erik Olson

    Picker, Auctioneer

    Erik fuels the adventure (literally, by putting gas in the truck). As an auctioneer, he comes across cool items. Some of them end up for sale here. (even without his knowledge.) His auction web site can be found: www.richardaolson.com

  • Aydin

    Shipping & Receiving

    Aydin reluctantly has joined the family business, not out of passion, but fueled by a desire to earn money for new shoes. He unloads the truck, moves boxes, and sets up at market - all with a smile on face and the hopes of being paid.
