After years of filling her home with vintage home goods, Elizabeth Aleckson launched her Minneapolis-based shop, Expo Facto. It was a natural move for this shopping addict with a career in merchandising. Nowadays, she keeps busy perusing auctions, antique shops and flea markets for beautiful finds to stock her business. Items like her gold rimmed agate coasters, antelope mounts and antlers make Expo Facto a hot corner among Krrb’s buyers. Read on to learn more about Elizabeth and this midwestern local business.

Elizabeth originally stumbled upon the site while searching for some Milo Baughman chairs for a client. She found the most gorgeous set on Krrb but they had just been sold. From that point she was hooked, exploring different neighborhoods and actively selling as well.
