Featured Sellers: Alison Grant and Shannon Hautman from The Big Heist

1. How would you describe the style of your pieces?
Our pieces are eclectic and always the height of vintage cool, ranging from industrial light bulbs and locker bins to classic Corelle kitchenware and Bakelite purses. Recently we've been collecting old typewriters, floral tablecloths, early 20th century Shakespeare editions, and fabulous suitcases.

2. What inspires you?
Alison likes to buy items with a sense of history and enjoys the hunt for the perfect piece. Shannon is inspired by vintage wares that are both functional and asesthetically pleasing.

3. Who is your fashion/design icon?
Shannon loves old Hollywood, 50's housewares, and Victorian England. Alison is inspired by 70's textiles, Vera Newman, and Florence Broadhurst.

4. Who is your kind of customer?
