The Bones: Kristen Scalia

My background is varied, and I've worn many different hats -- morgue assistant, rugby player, ice cream scooper and public relations executive, to name a few -- but currently I'm the owner of Kanibal Home, the lifestyle store I founded in 2006.

In a typical day I interact with customers, move and/or refinish furniture and merchandise displays in the shop. I fell in love with Jersey City's nineteenth-century brownstones and quaint parks after moving to the downtown area after college. I'm now lucky enough to divide my time between operating the shop, writing and collaborating on new shop projects with local artists.

 

The Thrill of the Hunt

Kanibal Home is filled with a rotating collection of one-of-a-kind objects. Our vintage objects are hand picked pieces that combine a unique charm and sense of history with a dose of modern glam. Because here at Kanibal Home, we’re hunters. For you. We only buy what we obsess over – actually, we have a hard time giving it up. This also means that in most cases there is only one of an item – so snatch it up before it’s gone, love it, live in it and check back often.
