Meet the team with over 200 years of combined experience
Proud OwnerI have had a life long passion of learning about antiques, their origins and purchasing good quality furnishings to repurpose with the intention of bringing new life into everyday unwanted items. Prior to owning this company, I worked for a company that really never saw me, I was a warm body in a cubical typing away not being heard nor seen. I make sure my employees and clients are seen and heard as well as I believe I bring excitement and passion to this business. I also having a degree in the medical field as a medical assistant and worked for KU hospital for many years. My passion has always been in helping people which led me to buying an estate sale company and in doing so I can still passionately do just that.
