See that avatar? That's us- Pam & Garrett, hanging out in Dublin. Half of our family is there, so we go as often as possible. A little more about the Bates. First me: Creativity is something that has always been a part of my life. I remember selling rocks that I painted pictures on - door to door in my neighborhood. I also have a love for neat vintage items- especially…

See that avatar? That's us- Pam & Garrett, hanging out in Dublin. Half of our family is there, so we go as often as possible. A little more about the Bates. First me: Creativity is something that has always been a part of my life. I remember selling rocks that I painted pictures on - door to door in my neighborhood. I also have a love for neat vintage items- especially those that look a little time-worn. I like to think about who owned an item before me and what it meant to them. In my other life, I work with small business people to postively position their businesses, which can find me writing, designing logos, postcards, ads or what have you. I easily get lost in design. I like to make things for those I care about whether it's something I design on the computer, like stationery, or something I do with my hands like arts and crafts, or food that makes their bellies happy. I just picked up pencils and pad again and am loving drawing! You will often find me with a camera in my hand taking pictures of just about everything. Him: My husband is part of our new Etsy adventure, he too has a love for anything vintage and the story behind each piece. Garrett is working on researching some of our vintage items before we list them. He's also a great sounding board and editor for my ideas. Coming from Dublin Ireland, he offers a different perspective than the one I have from growing up in NH. We met in the Bronx when I was attending college and are rarely apart. We both love to travel, especially meeting the locals and finding the perfect piece of art to bring home. Most importantly though, we love to laugh! Did you hear the one about the horse who walked into the bar? The bartender looks at him and says, "why the long face?".

Thanks for stopping into our shop and for reading this far.
