As a teenager, Mitchel Bradley was fascenated by the things he would find in his hometown of Bellefonte. For a little extra money, Bradley would sell the "antiques" to whoever would buy them.

As he found and sold things, he learned more and more about his town. The more he learned, the more he wanted to find.

After growing up, graduating from Penn State and pursuing a career in business, Bradley found himself dissatisfied with the rat race of corporate life. He decided to return home and pick up where he left off: buying and selling antiques, but this time it would be his full time job. Currently, he mans the helm of the Victorian House Antique Shop and Artisan Gallery in Bellefonte, Pa.
