Hello! We're Kyle & Mari, the dynamic duo behind Something Old Dayton! We are Virginian transplants living in the heart of Dayton, Ohio with our 4 kiddos and two cats. 

We started this company in the fall of 2015 after years of longing for a collaborative, creative project for our family. We have always loved antiquing and the meaningful work behind weddings and celebrations of all kinds. We truly enjoy hunting for and creating uniquely beautiful pieces and can't help but imagine all the history and possibilities held within them. Each item in our inventory has a story, a purpose, and a history of life and love! We love collaborating with our clients and the other amazing vendors in Ohio to create beautiful things!

Kyle has a degree in engineering from VCU, and a background in all things handy. He is the logistics master and the driving force behind the scenes!

Mari has a BFA from VCU's School of the Arts, a long history in art and creativity, and she has dabbled in all manners of making and creative problem solving. She is our "art director" and style guru here at SOD.

Our heart for this business is to put our gifts and our treasures to work for you, creating a beautiful backdrop for your moments, big and small, to play out. We are big believers in the sanctity and beauty of marriage, and in the greater purpose God has ordained for it! We are filled with joy at the prospect of helping fill your day with beauty at every turn.

Let us be part of your story!
