Our Story


Mark Sage, Founder & Creative Director, started BOBO Intriguing Objects in 2005 after being an antique dealer for 14 years.

BOBO is unique in its design direction in that we design all of our product line directly from antique pieces, meticulously reworking each piece to bring it forward to today's design aesthetic.

Working with factories in Belgium, Vietnam, China, India, Brazil & Nicaragua;
BOBO creates unique pieces, both well crafted and beautiful. 

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.

BRENDA THOMAS Office Manager

A puzzlemaker in every sense of the word. I am always putting the pieces together, twisting and turning them until everything fits perfectly together. This is true in both my personal and professional lives. I love my family and grandkids to pieces and my crossword...puzzles!

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.

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.

BETH LORD sales/marketing

As a creator and maker, I am happiest when working with my hands and sharing my talents with others. My two greatest teachers are nature and community. I believe design should honor the essence of a space and the authenticity of its inhabitants. In my next life, I want to come back as a textile.

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.
