Sundog started in 2011 when founder Julie Czech began buying and selling antiques in rural Colorado with her daughter, Toby.


Seven years ago, Julie rented a booth in an antiques gallery in Salida, Colorado as a way to make ends meet. Since then, Julie has expanded her business, opening an Etsy store, consulting for new antique shops, and selling throughout the state. Now we’re located on Main Street in downtown Buena Vista.


Julie Czech
Founder, Buyer & Seller

Julie lives in central Colorado with her youngest son, Parker, and her husband, Scott. Julie started selling antiques to pay for physical therapy for Parker, who has cerebral palsy. Julie has always collected antiques for herself and her family, but now she enjoys sharing the joy of her treasures with others.
