Welcome to the Long Beach Antique Market Blog!
Our featured seller, Kim and Tim of Ripe Design bring their true American East coast meets West coast style to the Long Beach Antique Market.
Painting, creating, and getting her hands dirty has always been Kim's passion. After finishing design school she realized she wanted to have her own design company. She went to business school, and right before graduation she met Tim, who also shared the same interest.
Tim Frost grew up in New England, building tree houses as a child. He had a very hands on, craftsman upbringing that would mold him into the designer he is today. He went to business school in Vermont to be able to one day open his own company. Here’s their story and a sneak preview of of some of the cool items they will be bringing to the Long Beach Flea Market , Sunday, May 17.
How did you get started with Ripe Designs?
Ripe Designs came about in 2012 when searching for unique & vintage items for our home. We quickly grew a passion for discovering hidden treasures and the characters of which they came from. Kim and Tim come together to form Ripe Designs, Restore Into a Positive Existence.
