Vintage & Antique Resurrection. Karen has crafted her entire life, and spent her childhood years living the family’s antique business. Doug has worked with wood and metal ever since his grandfather handed him a pile of wood shavings in his basement workshop. Together Karen and Doug enjoy the “hunt” for resurrection worthy gems that deserve a second life. What was lost can AT LAST be found through lighthearted creativity and positive energy. Karen works with vintage jewelry, buttons, and nostalgic items. Doug is a skilled and imaginative wood and metal worker and brings those talents to “re-invintaging” their wonderful finds. Both often combine elements, (snatched from their path to the landfill) in unique ways to produce fun “one of a kind” creations.
They are motivated by the foundation they created in 2015 to spread awareness of the insidious brain disease CTE, which caused the death of their son Patrick. Proceeds from the sale of the items in their booth go to the mission of the Patrick Risha CTE Awareness Foundation. Learn more at stopCTE.org. CTE is 100% Preventable.
