In this episode, we hear from Jeremy Thompson; artist, musician and founder of Templeton’s. We talk about the evolution of Templeton’s and how this vintage emporium came to develop a mission: curating the works and telling the stories of artists who had illustrious careers that went undocumented before the internet age. We talk about the fate of estates as family members pass on, and how Templeton’s attempts to offer an alternative to typical garage sales, estate sales and Craigslist. We also talk a little about Jeremy’s “artistic root” and why he became a collector and curator. We also hear the stories of some of the collections at Templeton’s now; collections brought to the shop by George Hawke (Los Lasers, The Dusty Chaps), the families of Geoff Pocock and Indiana Nelson.
