About Shell & pine

Shell & Pine is a love letter to old thing, new things, joyful things. We believe in rust & wear, careful stitches & playful patterns. The life of an item doesn’t end with it’s first owner — the story continues and becomes more interesting as years pass. We believe in those stories.

Katy is a 7th generation Texan, wife & mother, amateur seamstress & knitter and long-time vintage dealer. Her formal background is in writing, but she has been selling and buying vintage clothing and decor items, both online & in brick and mortar shops, for over a decade. After moving to Rockport in 2015 with her husband and young daughter (and a persnickety cat), Shell & Pine is her latest adventure. Along with her husband James (muscle & moral support) and her mother Paula (also a seasoned vintage aficionado), Katy wants to bring beautiful things to the Texas coast.
