In 2013, a series of life changing events took place in our lives. After losing both of Greg’s parents, we acquired many of their belongings including collectibles, antiques, and fine art. It was at that point in our lives when a door opened up for us to become vendors at a new thrift shop in Albuquerque. Greg ended up managing that store which actually rekindled a love, eye, and talent he acquired from his mother, a sought-after interior designer. Within a year that store closed, so we decided to step out in faith and opened Apples of Gold in Nov. of 2015! We're thankful we followed our heart and will never forget our small beginnings! Note: The phrase "Apples of Gold" was inspired to us because we believe it was truly God's perfect timing (fitly, perfect) to open our business. It comes from Proverbs 25:11 "A word fitly spoken is like 'apples of gold' in settings of silver."
