About Finding Wow at Newville's Olde Home
John and Kristine purchased this property in 1997 prior to his retirement. They had fallen in love with the historical features of the structure, especially the two cast iron and glass fireplaces in the living and dining rooms. Little did they know what was in store for them… It took over two years to completely renovate, repoint, repaint, RE-EVERYTHING in the house. The bank barn they ultimately used to establish the current shop they named Old Home, located in Newville, Pa. Kristine’s mother, Kathryn moved in and the three decided to renovate the entire barn as a gift and antique shop. It was open and thriving for several years until Kathryn’s battle with ovarian cancer forced them to close. Their love of the business and relationships with the community fueled the decision to start the website and sell on Ebay. Now, five years after Kathryn’s death, Kristine decided to reopen the store and update it with treasures galore. As for the name of the website: Her love of finding the “WOW” factor was nurtured by her mother in Cape May where she was raised. She is committed to finding the “WOW” as you read this now.
