Company Overview

Rather than go to college, Mark and Kathy Avery decided to make their living as glass blowers, selling their creations from the tailgate of their station wagon. The couple soon began selling their work to local retailers and eventually opened their own store.

In 1987 the first Ashley Avery’s Collectibles store (named for the couple’s young daughter) opened. Each store sells a variety of gifts and collectibles from names such as Hummel and Lladro.
