Hello friends!

Hello friends!

My name is Cori, and I am the founder of Gem City Mercantile.  It's nice to meet you!  In 2021, I started to (finally) declutter my home.  The decluttering began with my milk glass collection.  On a whim, I decided to open an Etsy store and see if I would be able to sell a few pieces.  Lo and behold - it worked!  That was the start of Gem City Mercantile.  Over the next year, I was fortunate to become friends with an amazing individual who introduced me to the local market scene here in Erie, Pennsylvania.  Gem City Mercantile began selling at various markets around town and we haven't slowed down since.  I hope to expand our reach with this website.

My passion is finding all sorts of antique and vintage goods for my own home, and yours!  In my spare time I love to cook and try out new recipes.  Cookbooks are one of my many collections!  I also enjoy spending time with my family - who are big helpers and supporters of Gem City!

Thanks for stopping by!
