We just love Re-Connecting people to the things they loved from the past. To see someone’s eyes light up and a smile grow as they talk about the memories of the items they see. The stories are to be valued and preserved.
Imagine two totally different thought processes colliding together in the world of ‘things’… one a saver and one a tosser. Meet John and Melissa. They meshed their individual collecting styles and have created Vintage Mercantile and Auction. They discovered that the joy is in the hunt for others and connecting them.
Meet the Team
Chief Collector – John Niece
John has been a collector of sorts all his life. As a youngster he collected stamps and coins from around the world. Later in life sports cards and now EVERYTHING. He sees the value in each and every item however once he has had them and enjoyed them for awhile he’s willing to pass it along to the next collector.
Chief Organizer – Melissa Niece
Melissa was never a collector, she has the motto of “if it doesn’t have a purpose it doesn’t have a home”. Yet she has discovered that saving a useful item from the garbage heap or finding a way to re-imagine it has gotten under her skin, so some crazy things get a new life.
Security – Shela
Shela is top security! Or should we say the doorbell! She announces visitors many times a day. She keeps a watchful eye on her humans, yet will accept a scratch or two on occasion.
