Christopher Sanchez-Quiros brings a strong passion for home furnishings and antique preservation. From early childhood, Christopher was taught an appreciation for craftsmanship of eras gone by, having spent many hours of his childhood with his beloved mother going from antique shop to antique shop on her days off. These are now some of his most treasured memories from his childhood. After several years working in the corporate world, Christopher had the wonderful experience of working for a very talented Miami interior designer. As her design assistant, he was given the opportunity to learn about more recent furniture makers and designers. Working closely with the interior designer, only further fine tuned Christopher’s vision, knowledge and appreciation for home furnishings and décor. This passion then lead Christopher to start Retro By Chris. Originally as a hobby of purchasing items from local thrift stores (often during lunch breaks from work) and weekly trips to the local flea market, then reselling the treasures found. After relocating from Miami to Atlanta in July of 2016 it became clear to Christopher that Retro By Chris needed to become a full time endeavor.
Joshua Winch joined the Retro By Chris team in December 2017 bringing years of both corporate and technical experience. Joshua started his career path in Medical sales for one of the country’s largest lab companies after 12 years Joshua decided it was time for a change so he ventured into IT for an online university until December of 2017 when his position was outsourced overseas. Joshua saw this as a wonderful opportunity to pursue his own goal of self employment independence by bringing his diverse professional experience to the development and growth of Retro By Chris including becoming a state licensed auctioneer allowing Retro By Chris to continue to branch out and grow by providing additional services.
