Charlene grew up Massachusetts surrounded by history. Her dad fueled that interest. It intrigued her that different objects and furniture could hold such history and tell such stories. She moved to Chicago in the late 1980's and there she became addicted to attending the Kane County Flea Market every month, rain or shine! In 1992 she moved to New Hampshire and the purchase of a 1750 farmhouse, with 6 fireplaces and many original features allowed her to search for the period pieces with which to fill it. While working for corporate America during the week, weekends found her antiquing in shops and at Flea Markets. She filled that house....then her barn....then she decided she was enjoying it so much, why not become a dealer? That was over 20 years ago! She has made many friends along the way. Charlene joined the Sage family about 4 years ago. When people ask her what she is doing now her response is, "I'm a full time grandmother, part time antique dealer. I love the mix of decades, paint, re-purposing and decorating ideas that Sage Farm offers!"
