Here at Lark - A Modern Marketplace, we have the friendliest staff Gettysburg has to offer waiting to help make your shopping experience one of a kind! Let's meet them.
Meet Timbrel Wallace - Owner
Timbrel started Lark in 2011 with the goal of creating a unique shopping experience in Gettysburg. By bringing a collection of thoughtful merchandise that features small businesses and artisans in America and around the globe, she has brought to Gettysburg the type of shopping typically reserved for hip urban centers. She not only wanted to offer the locals and visitors alike a different experience, but to promote regional products and grow the shopping community in downtown Gettysburg.
Meet Kate Cook
Meet Abigail Foster
Abigail Foster is a Gettysburg native who joined the Lark team shortly after her sister Rebekah came aboard. A girl of many talents, Abi counts painting, making jewelry and swing dancing as a few of her favorite hobbies, and currently freelances as a wedding and portrait photographer, with intentions of one day starting her own photo business. Abi says one of the many reasons she loves working at Lark is because it inspires her creatively. “I don’t see Lark as just a gift store,” she says. “To me, it’s more of a fulfilling experience that I take inspiration from.”
Meet Bekah Foster
Bekah’s first introduction to Lark started as a teenager, when they hired her to sing and play guitar as entertainment for First Friday’s. Now Bekah is thrilled to work on staff in close affiliation with The Bakery and Waldo’s and Company, as well as continue doing what she loves on First Friday’s— singing and playing guitar.
Meet Ken Knox
Ken is a Gettysburg native who returned to town in 2015 after living in Los Angeles for 14 years. A writer by trade, Ken became acquainted with Lark after writing a story about our grand reopening for the Gettysburg Times, fell in love with the store and became part of our team shortly thereafter. He's been with us ever since. Ken also happens to be one of several local artists whose product is sold in the store: His original postcards depict the lush agricultural landscapes and historical landmarks that make Gettysburg such a popular tourist destination. "I love being part of a store whose owner is so committed to fair trade products and is such a vital part of the community, so Lark was the first store I approached about my cards, and I'm thrilled to be part of the team," Ken says.
Meet Heidi Little
Woman of Mystery...
Meet Barbara Reinhold
Barb Reinhold has been with the Lark team for four years now. A retired nurse, Barb came aboard the team because she wanted to try something different after she retired, and says she loves the store for the unique experience it offers to both customers and employees. “Everything we sell is so eclectic, and I just love looking at all the product,” Barb says. “I think it makes for a very interesting shopping experience, and I love meeting people from all over the country and the comradery of working with my fellow team mates.”
Meet Sarah Strasbaugh
Sarah hails from Spring Grove, Pennsylvania and is a recent graduate of Clarion University, where she received a degree in Physics with a concentration in astrophysics, along with math, art and honors minors. A longtime member of the Lark team, both at Lark and our sister store, the Nerd Herd, Sarah recently relocated to Shallotte, North Carolina, but is still part of the team, where her original art – a series of prints, mugs, T-shirts and greeting cards that merges her appreciation of both science and art – is currently on sale
