My name is Sean Kelley and I graduated with a degree in history from Michigan State University in 2013. My love for history and research led me on a path working as a content editor and cataloger for the online estate sale and auction website Everything But The House. At EBTH I became highly knowledgable on the subjects of antique silver and vintage electronics; though I contributed content and research to all categories including fine art, furniture, and more. I presently work in accounting, but I very much miss working with antiques, vintage goods, collectibles, etc. In my free time I am a painter and freelance illustrator, as well as an avid record collector. I just moved to Grand Rapids with my partner and her two cats, and I'm looking to get involved in the auction/estate sale scene here; especially because of the town being such a hub of great midcentury modern furniture.
