In 2013, I was a student at the University of Georgia. In addition to my class requirements, I was privileged to be a member of the UGA Football team. Between studying, daily workouts and demanding practices, there was very little time for part time work to earn cash.

One day, however, I discovered Craigslist and made my first purchase of a $50 sofa. I brought it home, cleaned it up and reposted it for $150. It sold within a day! At that moment I was infected with the reseller’s bug!

In my spare time, I found myself at garage sales, estate sales, and local auctions. I discovered bargains that I knew could be repurposed and resold. Needless to say, my parent’s garage and basement began filling up with my purchases!

Within one month of graduating from UGA in December 2014, I began renting a 1,000 sq. ft. storage unit in Alpharetta. I packed the unit quickly with my inventory. Atlanta Used Furniture was officially named and my new business was launched. I worked non-stop, 24/7, buying, selling, and picking up vintage finds at all hours of the day and night. Soon my intrigue for Mid-Century furniture began to grow and so did my inventory! It began to reflect my new passion.

With strong sales and great encouragement from customers, I rapidly outgrew my first storage unit. In early spring of 2015 Atlanta Used Furniture relocated to its present home in a wonderful 5,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Chamblee, Ga.

Thanks to all of you, my loyal customers, who have purchased pieces from me throughout the years and have helped expand my business.

I hope you continue with me on my journey, as I work to inspire and connect people who share my passion for vintage and Mid-Century furniture.
