We're here to help! Meet the team:



Bethany began working in the antiquarian book market in 1995 after graduating with double majors in Philosophy and English Literature from Nazareth College of Rochester. She moved to Geneva in 2007 and opened Stomping Grounds in 2010. The store allows her to combine her love of old books and home decor.

Sales assistant
