Bob first met Karen in college in New England in 1969. They have been married and have worked together for almost a quarter century. In addition to developing several area businesses over his long career, he co-founded the Compass School in Southern Vermont and served as a founding director for four years. He founded a community radio station, WOOL-FM, which has just been granted full power status by the FCC. Since 2001, he has been developing a custom cataloguing system to enable the company to bring museum and private collections organized for public sale. This system has been used to track tens of thousands fashion and textiles objects, from many different consignors, and keep them organized and accessible. More than five years in the making, these databases have now been integrated into this website, providing the most comprehensive searchable clothing and textile price guide available anywhere on the web.
