Meet The Team
John & Michelle Palazzolo
Robin & Olive Palazzolo
The Talent
The Proprietors
We are a down to earth, casual couple. Married 30 years, lovers of everythng vintage. Die hard diy'ers. John is the fix it guy and Michelle is the make it pretty gal.  We are basically making it up as we go! Cuz it is about the adventure "right"
Are the brother & sister team of greeters. They both love people! Robin is our watcher he is always "on" & doesn't rest until everyone is settled. Olive "Moo" excels at napping, she will greet and follow people around but only for a short while then she heads for her favorite napping spot.

Being that we are somewhat new to the industry we wanted to set out our take on some frequently used lingo and terms. We have found that there are many different explanations, definitions and opionions of all kinds out there and in regards to what we are doing with our shop we thought we'd share how we are doing things. Also as a disclaimer John & I somewhat differ in some of these ideas! We want to keep things fun so no totaly solid lines on lingo.
