Aria is a coffee swilling minion who grew up on the mean streets of Racine, WI. Southside in the suburbs. White picket fences and two car garages. Sledding hill and reservoir across the street. She now resides in a cornfield west of I-94 in Racine County. She spent most of her life being dragged around to antique stores, auctions, bottle shows, thrift stores, junk shops and flea markets. Trained by the best. She now lives in the shadow of her Racine Historian father’s debut on American Pickers. She is a known hoarder we mean “Collector.” So, you’ll need to come and buy all this stuff so she does not take it home with her because she will! Oh, trust me she will!
