Couple Combines Vintage Business with Art and Fine Handcrafted Goods
During late 2012, Bill Quillen and his wife, Anne, purchased the Villa del Funk, an existing vintage store located in Crossville, Tennessee. They both love the authenticity of "old stuff," especially American-made items from the late 19th and 20th centuries. Further, Bill, a talented painter and potter, dreamed of creating a place where he could offer his original paintings, prints, handcrafted pottery (created under the name "Red Toad Pottery"), and teach classes.
It was a perfect match: bringing together the vintage business with Bill's creative abilities. Thus, during April 2013, the doors of Crossville's Villa del Funk & Firefly Art Studios opened. Today, the "Villa" is a busy place where the Quillens sell unusual vintage goods they collect, as well as Bill's original paintings, prints, and pottery. They also stock fine handcrafted items created by local artisans. In addition, Bill created fully-equipped pottery and art studios on site where he works and conducts classes.
The Quillens are happy to have an Etsy shop where they can reach a broader audience outside of the mostly rural area where their business is located. They appreciate everyone who shops at the Villa Del Funk Etsy Shop.
