Vendor Spotlight: Gary and Sarah (Booth 65)

 Gary and Sarah have been at YesterNook since the store opened, but their history as resellers goes back much farther than that.  Gary started as a teenager, selling baseball cards at local shows when he was just sixteen.  That experience led to interests in other vintage items, and the rest is history. Sarah got bit by the bug when she and Gary started dating.  Gary playfully says that he "infected" her.  (He also still has lots of those old baseball cards.)

Naturally, sports memoribilia is one of the items Gary still collects and specializes in, along with signs, thermometers, and clocks.  Sarah also has several collections, including depression glass, cameos, and smoking ashtrays.

Selling at YesterNook has been a positive experience for both of them.  Gary describes the store as "a nice compromise between the larger malls and the specialty shops."  They like the fact that "there is something for everyone because the inventory changes so fast."

They certainly do their part to keep the store fresh and exciting each week.  Working as a team, they hunt for items together, then plan and stock the booth together.  Gary says that they enjoy the hunt for merchandise.  "We work really hard to bring in neat items."

The hard work seems to pay off for them, as they always seem to have unique items in their booth. From Fenton to Roseville to advertising, the list is seemingly endless.  You can find their booth, which is in the room called Edith, by walking up the steps onto the first floor and going straight.  Booth 65 is one of several in this room.  As you face the large windows, it is one of the booths on your left.
