I recycled an entire old home that was going to be condemned into a new home, without waste. My passion to reuse, recycle, repurpose, eye for detail, support local businesses, and buy products that will last a long time or can be used for multiple purposes is what I seek out. That has led me down a path of over two decades working with top major brands, such as HGTV, Target, Overstock, Kroger, Ace Hardware, and Better Homes & Gardens. I am also an Author and contributor to Salvage Secrets, Salvage Secrets: Design and Décor, and Salvage Styling. Local networks such as NBC, CBS, ABC, and FOX broadcasts have and currently feature my work. So my body of work is out there for all to see, whether it's on my TV segment "Create with Quimby" on CW KOIN AM News Extra or speaking across the country at national Interior Design Chapters. I love to create Interior spaces or salvaged DIY projects that will last and last.Favorite PurchaseThe West Bend Poppery II Hot Air Popcorn Popper. I bought it in 1988 and from day one it has consistently popped corn without fail. It has never burned the kernels, pops corn in under five minutes, always comes out fluffy, and no oil is needed. Some kernels do eject into the bowl and then pop afterward which launches popcorn in all directions, but I have grown to love that, trying to corral popcorn into the bowl by circling my arms around it. If you choose to add butter disregard using the small dish that's inserted in the plastic top cover. The corn pops quicker than the butter can melt.
