Shelly is Revival’s co-founder and vintage buyer. In addition to her background in design and merchandising, Shelly has been buying and selling (and hoarding) antiques and vintage items for nearly 20 years. You will always find her latest treasures sprinkled around the shop!

Shelly’s affinity for found objects began with a fabric obsession during her stay-at-home mom years. She would frequent the outlets for high end fabrics and eventually began selling her fancy collections online. When she realized she could turn her hobby into a significant source of income for her family, she expanded into vintage furniture. Shelly isn’t shy to tell you she will happily climb into a dumpster for a good chair, and she got really good at finding on-trend pieces and flipping them for a profit. To this day, her girls still hold their breath when they pass a thrift shop or yard sale.

Shelly is an Annapolis native and lives in West Annapolis with her husband, four girls…two cats, one dog, and a family of raccoons. Revival is her happy place and you can find her there most weekends.

Stephanie is Revival’s director of operations and chief problem solver. She’s got eyes on all the important stuff from budgeting to payroll to vendor fulfillment. She jumped in prior to Revival’s opening to “help us understand Quickbooks,” and has been a key member of the team ever since.

A Maryland native, Stephanie went on a decade long hiatus to Nashville, TN where she worked as an accountant in the engineering, automotive, and healthcare sectors. She has since returned to Maryland, settling in West Annapolis with her husband and two young children. Stephanie views her work at Revival as an opportunity to actively engage in the revitalization of the neighborhood while building a special shopping destination within her community.
