Don Short, host of HGTV’s West End Salvage, and his team of pickers and designers will join Good Ju Ju, a local West Bottoms Vintage Store, in August. As seen on DIY & HGTV, West End Salvage centers around Short’s store, West End Architectural Salvage and follows him and his crack team of pickers, carpenters and designers as they find and create amazing one-of-a-kind pieces out of salvaged treasures.
Whether they're prying unusual details off the sides of old buildings or competing with quirky Midwest pickers for the ultimate find, they take their haul back to Don's 50,000-square-foot warehouse in downtown Des Moines to spin gold out of straw. In the end, whether it's a lamp made from a bakery whisk or a bench fashioned from a pig trough, these items will ultimately become the centerpieces of stunning room makeovers for customers in the know.
“We are beyond thrilled to have Don and the guys join us”, said new Good Ju Ju owners Pam Kenney and Penny Sweeney. “We’ve been talking to them for months, but never thought it would be happening. Besides their wild imaginations, they are just fun to hang with.”
Good Ju Ju will introduce Short and his team to their customers at their next event, August 7 and 8.
