Unique Junque to expand to Sioux Falls

Jan. 3, 2019

A “junk” furniture and home decor store east of Sioux Falls that also offers DIY classes is expanding into the city.

Unique Junque will have a second location at 1510 E. 10th St.

“We love our location in Rowena. Unfortunately, it’s just not big enough for us,” said Remington Cain, who owns Unique Junque with her daughter, Jordan Doyle.

The 3,500-square-foot building in Sioux Falls is the former home of North American Title Loans and was set to become a pawnshop operated by former Badlands Pawn employees, but that never materialized.

The store in Rowena will continue to sell the furniture pieces Cain and Doyle make and repurpose. It also will remain as the site of the outdoor Rowena Junque Markets.

In addition to Cain and Doyle’s pieces, the Sioux Falls store will sell merchandise from about 10 local makers, and there will be eight vendor booths. Unique Junque carries a range of goods, from signs and pillows to jewelry and lotion bars.

“We try to keep as much handmade or homemade,” Cain said.

She’s working with a boutique owner to have clothing in the store.

Unique Junque’s weekly crafting classes will move to Sioux Falls. The business offers about four sessions a week and also does private ones for gatherings such as bachelorette parties and team-building.

Most of the classes guide participants through painting a wooden sign or other item that they get to take home, but Cain also teaches how to paint furniture.

Cain started the business on the road in 2011, selling her pieces at junk markets in the region. She opened the Rowena store four years ago. Her daughter has been helping her at the store since then and became a partner in November.

She and Doyle live in Steen, Minn., so finding a location on the east side of Sioux Falls was ideal, Cain said. Unique Junque draws a lot of customers from southwest Minnesota and northwest Iowa in addition to Sioux Falls, so that also made the East 10th Street location favorable.

They hope to have remodeling work done soon so that the store can open later this month.

The hours haven’t been set, but Unique Junque will be open Thursday through Sunday.
