Mark's Story

 

Over The Years...

The Trading Company has become a fixture in Crescent Hill. With each owner, the store transforms to fit their particular style and passion. Of course, we had to make the store our own, and so, a transformation began. The mission of Crescent Hill Trading Company is to provide quality furniture and home interior pieces to our neighbors. We will find unique items and create unique products with striking design. 

The Trading Company...

Life started early in Marks with the childhood tendency to rearrange the living furniture every other month. Fortunately, his mother was accommodating and enjoyed seeing what he would create. As many creative young people, his projects were often over the top and outlandish. But over time, Mark began to develop a great eye for design and for furniture.

Wouldn’t It Be Great If...

You could work somewhere that was close to home… a place where you knew almost everyone who came through the door… a place where neighbors felt comfortable just stopping in and sharing their day. For years, Mark and Jack (Mark's business Partner) would go into the Crescent Hill Trading Company and peruse the idea of owning the store. For years, Mark and Jack would say to Kathy, the previous owner, “if you ever decide to sell, please let us know.” Seeing as they both lived down the street from store, it was a dream that one day they each would be able to walk to work. Then, in the fall of 2016, their dream became a reality.
