Behind The Scenes: Meet Barbara Gall Winner

She's our Vintage Queen and knows a lot about all things 50s, 60s, and 70s. She sells vintage collectibles, pottery, jewelry, and amusing oddities. In fact, one of those amusing items, an "upstairs potty" was featured several times on Bazaar Shopping Network because it just made you crack up!
"My inspiration is to provide an outlet for people to enjoy repurposed, useable items."
And if you don't recognize Barbara, you'll certainly recognize Wilson, her 11-year old PomChi. If Barbara is here, Wilson is here. She never goes anywhere without him.
