Lisa, by her definition is a hoarder of vintage clothing, hats, accessories, kitchen items, furniture and just about anything quirky that catches her eye. "I honestly watch the television show “Hoarders” just to remind myself that I do not want my children to be rolling their eyes on camera as they tell my story of how it all started, while the lens pans over to me cowering in the corner sobbing because they want to take my hat collection to the thrift store."
Over the years, Lisa has collected it all, hats in boxes, antique dresses, sparkly jewelry, creepy mime figurines, furniture, old dusty books, tea pots and tea cups. These items, along with new collections moved with her from Ohio, to Texas, Maryland, Pennsylvania, California and back to Pennsylvania. Lisa decorated her homes with an eclectic mix of old items found at auction and dumpster diving and new items always at deep discount. Lisa became the go to friend when someone needed just the right piece in their foyer and was sent on buying missions to find them at just the right prices.
Lisa has sold her vintage clothing, antiques and decor in many brick and mortar stores over the years and even pulled out of a shop to sell exclusively online; but she missed being surrounded by like minded people and helping customers find the best pieces for their homes. "Morgantown Market is truly the best shop I have been a part of. I learn something new every day and I appreciate that the Thompsons have given me the support and freedom to run my small business as part of a collective of so many amazing merchants."
