Waited Collective

Bushkill, PA

"We specialize in handmade housewares and fine furniture. We also offer design/build services and custom interior and exterior woodwork."
Zackary Waite and Emily Repp both grew up in Ohio, and were influenced to become makers at an early age. Zackary's grandfather, a contractor, had Zack working on construction sites doing woodwork as long as he can remember. Zackary studied Industrial Design and Environmental Studies at The New School at Parsons School of Design in New York City.

Emily grew up attending art classes with her grandmother, a painter, and went on to study Art Education and Ceramics at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Over the next 10 years, Emily went on to work at Brazee Street Studios in Cincinnati, Jono Pandolfi Designs in Union City, and UrbanGlass in Brooklyn.

The two met in Union City, New Jersey in 2016 and decided to join forces. In 2018, they got married and moved with their cat, Savannah, to the Delaware Water Gap Area of Pennsylvania. The move allowed them to re-focus and spend more time outdoors, while continuing to build relationships with clients in the greater NYC Metropolitan Area. In 2019, they began traveling to sell their wares at craft festivals across the region, including stops in PA, OH, NJ, NY, MD, VA, CT.
