Hi Everyone! I'm Kristen, and along with my husband Michael, we've created Redemption Road and are the new owners of this website store.
We've been married for 28 years and have gone "all in" on this business together, selling Fusion Mineral Paint, IOD products, and upcycled furniture and home decor. We have two spaces in the local Pittsburgh area, and now this awesome website!
We have 3 kids in various phases and love to spend time together as a family. I've been a stay-at-home mom for the last 22 years, and have done the antique booth business various times throughout that span. Redemption Road was an idea in the back of my head that really started coming to fruition during the pandemic. I found people online that did what I wanted to do but I didn't know it could actually be a business - having a website store with products that you can use to redo, recycle, REDEEM used home decor and furniture, and teach others how to do it!
Michael has been an entrepreneur in the insurance sector for the last 16 years and in management for 15. During the pandemic, we began to talk about finding something that we could start together, so he wouldn't have to leave everyday after things went back to "normal". Last year, he stepped down from management and we've been working every day to make this dream a reality. Skip ahead to early this year and somehow, through divine intervention, I connected with Melanie in the most "only God" way and, we bought her online business.
So, it's taken a couple years to get here, with some trial and error, and a little wink in the right direction. But, I'm so excited to be able to say that we are finally here, online, for YOU! I can't wait to start connecting with you and show you some of the never-ending ideas that go through my head for how to create one-of-a-kind decor. I'm so excited to get started, let's go!
Kristen and Michael
