With a staff that seems to be growing by the minute, we thought it may be a good idea to put some names with some faces. So many of you out there only speak to some of us on the phone or see our names written in blog posts. But, we want to make Steel City Collectibles a community and in communities, people tend to know others by their face, name, and even a little bit about what they do for work and about their personality.

This is where Getting To Know Steel City Collectibles comes in. Over the next several weeks, we’ll be posting photos and favorite interests of our staff members. Stay tuned as a few will be released each week!
