In 1986, Husband and wife duo, Julie Gaines and Dave Lenovitz, took a ride through upstate New York searching for items to fill their newly opened store in NYC’s Gramercy Park. They found a farmer with an old barn that fell victim to fire. It was filled with restaurant plateware when it succumbed to the flames. And where the barn wasn’t so lucky, the plateware was—it survived the fire.
Expecting just to buy a few soot-slathered pieces and call it a day, Julie and Dave were instead offered to purchase the entire lot. Whether it was fate or the persuasive salesmanship of a farmer in overalls, Julie and Dave returned to NYC with the barn’s full bounty of wares. And what began as a random purchase became a major passion. After 27 years, they’re still putting their heart and soul into dishes. And onto them. People love their custom printed plates and keep dishing out praise.
