Founded in 2003 by collectors Michael Allgood and Gregory Campbell, the partners started out by attending antique shows in Southern California and wowing the crowds with their enormous California pottery collection. Word spread and they soon became known up and down California as, "The Pottery Guys".
In 2005 Greg took his gemology certification and they expanded into jewelry, antique furniture, decorative objects and fine art. Mike and Greg's as it is today was born when the pair moved to 57th Street Antique and Design Center in 2010. Within a year they were excited to be receiving requests for Mike's design services. As the business has grown it has come to reflect the passions of its owners more and more, simply a commitment to quality and beauty and having fun.
