Hi. I'm Kathy (Kat) Merrett and I live in Celina, Tennessee.  I rescue anything old, vintage, retro or antique.  I consider myself to be the "Original Pic R Chic".   Along with my best friend Beth, we began selling these treasures in  our booth in the Noblesville Antique Mall (Noblesville, IN)  about 12 years ago.  Since then I have moved to the beautiful Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee where I have been the owner/operator of Old Home Place Antiques for two years.  Having the opportunity to live in Celina, just a few short miles from Dale Hollow Lake, is a dream come true.  That, combined with the ability to have my own antique shop in the most loving and caring community I've ever know, has blessed me beyond measure.


I am married to the love of my life, John Michael Merrett.  He is truly a gift from God.  We have two beautiful daughters, Amanda Rae and Casie Lynne.  We refer to them as our "Big Girls".  Both are very head strong, huge baseball and football fans, but are also completely different with their own special personalities .  With their Daddy they share a love of the Cincinnati Reds.  Amanda is the mother of Hannah (21), Phayth Raven (16) and Jazelynn Jade (13), our (not so) "Little Girls".  They are the joy and light of our lives.  Very talented young ladies who are full of life.  We are very blessed!
