Brookings Junk Jam celebrates home decor trend

BROOKINGS, S.D. (KSFY) -- Unwanted items in Brookings were transformed into unique pieces in a popular home trend that brought hundreds out to shop Saturday.

The city's first annual Junk Jam was held in the barn outside the Swiftel Center.

Dozens of vendors from around the region came out to the event, providing food, drinks, music and the chance to find some one-of-a-kind creations.

"Our rule was to keep your booth mostly homemade, antique, repurposed, salvaged and just the style you see on the fixer upper and the HGTV shows and we have a good following of clients that do Does It Work (DIY) and love home cater and to cater to them," said Noelle Morford, Funky Junk owner, event organizer.

Morford says she came up with the idea of a junk show after their shop - Funky Junk - has become so popular in the Brookings community.
