Russ has been selling quality antique decoys for 45 years. He pioneered the direct marketing of antique decoys, publishing a full-color catalog for over 20 years (now replaced by this website). He has built an extensive computer database of customers and their collecting and dealing interests, so that he can bring relevant items to their attention.
A Rutgers College graduate and U.S. Air Force veteran who then spent 25 years in marketing for several major corporations, Russ is experienced in all facets of consumer and pharmaceutical marketing, and he has brought these skills to the antiques business.
Karen spent 15 years with Procter & Gamble in Cincinnati before moving with Russ to Pittsburgh and then New Hampshire and becoming involved in the antiques business. She is known for her good "eye" for quality antiques and her presentation ability. She has provided many collectors with helpful decorating advice.
