Chrononaut Mercantile is the partnership of Jeff Witkavitch and Heather Kahn.

Jeff Witkavitch started crafting at the New York Renaissance Festival about 20 years ago making belts, pouches, whips, chains and myriad other items. He expanded his repertoire making handbags and luggage in New York, Maryland and Maine. He is the website designer, graphic artist, and voice of reason for Chrononaut Mercantile. Notorious for his cynicism and dark sense of humor, as well as his exacting aesthetic, Jeff has an inhuman attention to detail and innate perfectionism that drives Heather to drink. He also loves his cats.

Heather Kahn spent many years toiling in the shadow of her mad-scientist father at Caravan Beads. In the dark recesses of his extensive bead warehouse she picked up a variety of unlikely skills. She left the bead world behind to work as a ninja, and has now spent several years teaching martial arts to impressionable young children. Chrononaut Mercantile is the flowering of her desire to live an adventurous life, possibly fighting a dragon here and there.
