Kelly is the CEO of Trading Post 1908 and has a Doctorate in Educational Studies, Masters in Business Administration, and Bachelors in Consumer Affairs. While teaching at a four-year university, Kelly took her love for antiques to market as a hobby, but quickly found many short-comings in the small town markets in her area. She wanted to bring business principals to Antique markets, while at the same time, creating a community of businesses that would support each other with networking and education.
Kelly, and business partner, Jennifer Kerstner, quickly grew this idea into the Trading Post 1908.
Trading Post 1908 is a platform for small businesses in anything antique, vintage, and handmade. It provides venue space for juried antique, vintage, and handmade curators and artisans on the west coast of the United State. Additional services provides training, access to resources, website services, business promotion, and business development for those budding in the industry. Our vision at Trading Post 1908 is to provide first class service while empowering vendors to grow and thrive.
