Kate graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in fine arts and began her professional career with a retail and home furnishings brand, Shabby Chic, in Chicago. She spent several years living in Los Angeles and managing their retail division before she came home to Wisconsin and opened The Home Market in 2006 in the Third Ward. As the founder and owner of The Home Market, Kate can be found purchasing new pieces for the store both in the US and abroad, managing one of her many custom design projects across the country, and at the store, helping a new customer pick out the perfect accessory, and even loading it in their car for them!
Retail and Operations Manager
Amy assisted with the opening of The Home Market in 2006 and has been working in the store since 2009. After graduating from Marquette University, she worked in the insurance and legal fields but found that her passion was working on the retail floor with guests and assisting in the buying and inventory management of the store. She is the most colorful of the team and specializes in helping customers pick family-friendly pieces for their homes. Amy also manages the online store. Amy resides in the Washington Heights neighborhood with her husband, three sons and an energetic rescue coonhound.
