About Us

Treasures by the Locks opened as a sole proprietorship in January of 2021.

We found the location at 7 May Street was up for rent in September or October of 2020. The price was right, the location acceptable, but the timing was bizarre. We were in the middle of a pandemic. Lockdowns were a thing that could and did happen, but, ah, oh well, we’d tackle it when it happened.

After spending years running booths in various vintage markets it seemed to be the time to branch out and try something new. So that’s what we did. After a lot of starting and stopping, we opened up in January of 2021 and stumbled along throughout the early pandemic.

We’re still here, and we plan to be here for a long time.

Treasures by the Locks deals in vintage finds and magical supplies, with a sprinkle of randomness thrown in. A dash of whimsy. A spot of whatever. We like to bring in different little things to see what people think, and we have a lot of fun doing it.

Meet The Team

The Boss

Nancy is the one in charge. She does most of the buying, pricing, wrangling of vendors, and gnawing on the scenery, plus handling the money stuff. Generally, she’s the one that remembers what the old and brand-new things are, what has been in stock, and whether or not some things have ever been on the shelves.

The Minion

Melissa lurks in the background, fighting with social media accounts and the website, solving the mystery of the angry printer, and generally handling customer service things. She also decided to make the team photos cats because both the people in charge are shy introverts, they’re just good at acting otherwise.
