Dealer Profile ~ Todd Crawford

Todd in AlaskaTodd Crawford (Dealer 818) has been a dealer at FOUND since we opened in August 2010. The thrill of the hunt combined with an eclectic taste keeps his booth fresh and appealing to all kinds of buyers. Art Deco mirrors, Mid-century Modern furniture, primitive painted cupboards and an array of interesting smalls and artwork – you’ll find it all there! Todd is often known for finding some of the largest, heaviest and tallest pieces in the shop. Recent finds in this category include an old general store counter and an enormous 12 foot tall wooden laboratory cabinet from Cornell.

A Syracuse native, Todd has lived in Ithaca for almost twenty years Dealer 818and grew up hunting for antiques with his grandfather. His official start in the antiques business began fifteen years ago when he started selling on eBay. When he heard FOUND was opening, he immediately wanted to be apart of it.

As far as collecting goes Todd rarely keeps any of his finds, but he does have a growing number of original oil paintings hanging in his home. Todd has been a 6th grade teacher at Boynton Middle School for fifteen years. He’s a single dad who loves his kids, going to estate and garage sales and hanging out at the lake on a sunny day. Todd is also currently working on writing his first novel.
