BoBo Team

Mark Sage Founder/CEO

Vintage is really where my heart beats. When I go to a new barn and someone opens those doors, my heart jumps. An antique dealer at heart, I love the hunt, the stories and the people. I hold a particular fondness for circus paraphernalia, motorcycles and my collection of religious Santos.

Liz Sheppell Product Development/Operations

Besides my family, my studio brings me the most joy. Painting was my first great love. These days we mostly share a late night and weekend romance. Operations and production at BOBO really keep me on my toes…much like my four-year-old.

Orlando Delgado Warehouse Manager

Most of the time I feel a bit like a Swiss Army multi-tool. It makes sense and there might not be a better tool to be. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, especially outdoors. Being in nature and maintaining real human contact is important to me. When asked about social media, I often joke that my name remains unclaimed.

Channon Hunter Stylist

My greatest passion is my antique shop. I love both the hunting and styling. Fishing, gardening, being outdoors and playing with my chickens are my other great joys. At BOBO, I bring order to the chaos in our ever-evolving BOBO and antique showrooms. My friends consider me to be a bit of a vintage clothes junky.

Matt Davis Tradeshow Manager/Key Accounts

When not traveling about as the BOBO tradeshow manager, my time is most often spent watching movies, visiting museums or sharing a meal with family and friends. I’m an art history buff including but not limited to world religions…everything from antiquity to modern religions. Don’t even get me started on the myths and legends of Egypt, Greece, Rome and Babylonian. Be still my heart.

Brittney Gaither Customer Service

Some city folks consider me a “country girl”…I do love the outdoors. I enjoy hiking, camping, kayaking and working in my yard. I’m most relaxed near a body of water and I cherish my time with my two girls. The rest of my days are spent granting customers’ wishes and saving the world one intriguing object at a time.

Lalo Casanova Web/Photo

Most of the time I can be found tucked behind my computer screen (fruit cup by my side) solving the world’s IT challenges. I am a lover of all mediums of art and instrumental music. Cloudy days make my heart shine brightest. I find that my greatest perspective is through the lens of my camera.

Karen Haan Accounting

After 20 years of accounting and 10 years as a small business owner, I wanted a career change. Furniture has been my passion since I was a little girl scouring the pages of design magazines. 7 years ago, I took my first job in the furniture industry and I haven’t looked back. I’m a vegetarian (25 years and counting), a rescuer of animals and a drinker of margaritas.

Kayla Moore Customer Service

A dedicated cat mom who spends all my free time discovering new Grateful Dead recordings with my boyfriend or going to concerts. I’m a recent college graduate and a pescatarian (except when I go to Chick-Fil-A). I love hunting for vintage clothes or antiques to add to my odd collection of bohemian finds so I love being surrounded by BOBO products all day!
