About Us

He graduated from law school in 1981 and practiced law for 26 years in Southern California. Upon retiring, he became a member of the Warren Vol. Fire Company.  He currently serves with both the Warren Vol. Fire Company and the Kent Vol. Fire Company.

Karen Shaw grew up mostly in Southern California , and graduated from UCLA. She moved to San Diego and taught elementary school for 27 years. Upon retiring from the teaching profession , she decided to embark on a new adventure in life … that of a retail shop owner specializing in an eclectic mix of antiques. The quaint small town living in Warren and Kent fit perfectly with Karen’s personality. When not at the shop, you will find Karen perfectly content tending her gardens, knitting,crocheting, or enjoying a great book.

Karen and Jim have one son , Michael. Currently, he has just completed his first semester at Ithaca College in New York as a Psychology Major with an emphasis in Biology.  He is an avid skier .
