Mr and Mrs Michael Flores' Profile

About

How we began......
Michael's love for restoration began at age 8 through a beloved Tonka toy. His toy broke, a friend of his saw this proclaiming that he wished it wasn't broken because he wanted it. Mike fixed the toy and gave it to his surprised friend. Never the wiser, Mike's life was set on course by this gesture. He became a Veterinary Radiologist Technician treating animals with cancer while he continued to restore discarded items. Due to the demand of his restored pieces and customized orders, through faith Mike left the hospital which allowed him to pursue his dream of being a business owner. Michael's life has always been about giving special moments to others, whether its through a broken toy, a family pet, or salvaging a treasured piece that was passed down from family.

Now Theresa's story is different. As a child she would see discarded toys and trinkets that in her mind were sad because they had no home. Yes, “Toy Story” hits home for her. So, she had to rescue them - especially stuffed animals, anything red and anything made out of metal. As she grew up, her love of art restoration gave Theresa a "It's not broken - where's the hammer, glue, paint" attitude. The terms "Upcycle" and "Repurpose" were not in existence back when she started jumping into dumpsters to "save" something. Marrying various demolished items together to create something new was just logical to Theresa. Little did she know this mindset would turn into a way of providing for her family and blessing others.

Michael Anthony and Theresa Marie brought together their passions to create
“Anthony Marie Restored Finds” in order to serve others. Needless to say they are
very proud of their baby!
