About Us

With humble beginnings Anthony has transformed a simple wood box into Art.  He is the Designer and Artist behind all the original photos shown in “our work” gallery.

Anthony shares a deep passion for culture, travel and forgotten items with a history.  He travels the nation, hand selecting unique and exotic finds not limited to wood crates but as well antiques ranging from Americana, Primitives, Oddities, Porcelain Signs, and Vintage Industrial.

Anthony says, ” I love what I do! I created a niche business that was basically a hobby…Everyday is like Christmas!!  You never know what I will find next” At any given time at his design center and warehouse not only will you see over 5,000 crates but as well there is an array of hard to find Americana and Primitives.

“The Crate People” is largely connected with Farmers and Wine Makers throughout the US.  We are a nationwide bulk distributor of hard to find antique wood crates proudly serving the entire USA whether you buy just 1 or 1,000 crates.

We are proudly entering our 5th year in business and are committed to bringing newly discovered “found” vintage wood crates to market.

“The Crate People” promotes Recycling/Up-Cyclying and shares your vision in bringing the  “green”  touch to any decor.

We only use the highest quality materials and specialize in repurposing Vintage Crates to create Furniture and Funky Displays for any application be it a home or retail space.
