"When did you start your business?" Cisco said, "June 2010. I was unemployed. I couldn't find a job. I decided to build some things, and I built my first birdhouse..
Various items Cisco collects
So I asked him, "Do you love what you do?" and he said, "I wish I would've started before, I was a mortgage wholesale representative and now I love the freedom to do what I want. I love the creativity to make new things from previously used old things. I love the interaction with people. The big shows keep that alive."
Cisco can be found at the Alameda antique on the first Sunday of every month at F27, at the Treasure Island flea market on the last weekend of every month, http://www.treasureislandflea.com/, and at his new shop in Castro Valley open the 2nd Saturday of the month from 9-6. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Restoreandrework/120073454752702?sk=wall
He has a facebook page, which is this link and could use some support, he is going to quickly get it, I can tell you, his place sings with charm. Here are some pictures of his new store in Castro Valley...

I love all the rusty pieces mixed with useful jars, and boxes..
I got the killer candle holder and it sits on my bedroom vanity, thanks Cisco!
charming rusty bike mixed with frames, boxes, candelabras and vintage frogs...
