In June of 2015, my husband Rick and I purchased troVe, then called Consigned Design. Previously I worked in the financial industry for over 25 years. Though finance wasn’t my passion, it served a purpose and perfectly positioned me for business ownership. While renting a booth at Consigned Design, the owners were looking for a buyer and I knew this was my passion. When it comes to vintage finds, there’s nothing I love more than patina, rust, and pieces that looks like it has a good story. We have worked hard to change troVe to what it is today, found treasures old and new. We look for vendors that are unique and different from one another as to offer something for everyone.
