Meet the 205: Laura Silsbee

It all started as a fun way to sell some baby clothes. In 2012, Silsbee wanted to clean out some closets and get rid of some furniture she didn’t use anymore. Thus arose Mountain Brook Trading, a boutique trading site for members to sell their gently used, designer and upscale furniture, home decor, and other items and for buyers to locate some great finds.
