Kelly’s love of antiques and her furniture began at an early age. “Our home was filled with different style aesthetics, most of which were eclectic and interesting,” he said. “My mom and dad took my sister and me everywhere. We went on trips to auctions, antique stores, and flea markets.” At the time, Kelly said, people considered antique shopping “junk.” It was called.
When Kelly was only six years old, the family suffered an unthinkable tragedy when her mother died in a car accident. Because his father was in the military, they moved frequently and were later stationed in the Northern Virginia area.Kelly’s His father continued his passion for life and antiques, even opening a store in an antique mall outside Fort Belvoir.
