"Simplicite" A Love Affair with Antiques!


Barbara Hayslip and Kelly Rollow have been friends for over 10 years and vendors at Homewood Antiques since September 2015.  Barbara was born and raised outside of Detroit, Michigan but has called
 Alabama home since 1981.  Barbara graduated from Samford University majoring in Paralegal Studies and retired from a 28 year paralegal career in July 2014.  Kelly hails from Norman, Oklahoma and graduated from Oklahoma Baptist University with a degree in Sociology/Social Work and minor in Religion.  

Kelly moved to Birmingham in 1997 and also worked as a paralegal until retiring to be a stay at home mom.  Both have always had a love affair with antiques and enjoyed helping each other with various projects in their respective homes.  In the summer of July 2015, Barbara “popped” the question to Kelly … “would you be my business partner?”  And rest is history!  

They started Simplicite’  and are having the best time scouring here, there and yonder to find rustically refined and amazing mid-century pieces.  Simplicite' opened their second booth at Homewood Antiques in May 2016 to bring in wonderful ironwork in the form of lamps, sconces and tables.  When they are not in search of the perfect piece for one of the Simplicite’ booths, Barbara and Kelly also do home organization and staging.
