Funkie Junkies will open on 284 E. McKenzie Street in Punta Gorda, Florida on October 1, 2011. The vintage-y cornucopia shop will feature a little bit of everything: antiques; furniture; home decor; books; crafts; and original art by Shauna Lee Lange Studios. Shop owner Hollie Dustin said her goal is to cater to the community by offering items that are affordable and unique.
By featuring artworks from Lange Studios, Funkie Junkies will be introducing framed, original collage on a variety of themes for home decor and chromolithograph collage pieces with feminine undertones. Lange has long worked in art pieces centering on personal geographies for women, and is very excited to be able to feature her pieces in a storefront that has an eclectic aesthetic appeal. Lange will be lending to the storefront’s grand opening, one of her Key West pieces entitled “Look Close Now”. It is a completed mixed-media work with vibrant royal blues and greens and is a statement both for how women see the external world and how the world views women.
