What's In The Crate Antiques & Curiosities
Vintage Objects, Rocks & Minerals
Whats In The Crate (WITC) is a four person team comprised of Paul & Eliza Galotti and long time friends Mike & Cait Hersey. They focus on natural curiosities like rocks and minerals, unique antiques, and vintage objects that are difficult or impossible to find anywhere else. They get all of their goods the hard way – through networking, negotiating with farmers and estates, and scouring dilapidated, old places that most folks would prefer to avoid. WITC sells the things you can’t find through the corporate giant internet retailers, nor will you find anything “made to look old”. They promise.

Kristin Gewanter and Gina Rogers are sisters that come from a long line of “Yankee Horse Traders”, according to their mother. Her influence on them to appreciate old and beautiful things for their homes has inspired them to search and collect the same for others.
They are also the sisters of the one and only Michael Skalski, owner of Catamount Traders.

Early Antiques to Vintage Treasures
Jeremy enjoys searching the backroads of New England for antique and vintage treasures: anything from Early American and English antiques to vintage Mid-century modern pieces. While he’d love to keep them all, he enjoys giving them a new lease on life by sending them to homes where they will be used and cherished once again.
