213 N. Kinsley Avenue started life as a bakery in 1896. When we bought the building in 2017, we researched the history. To read what we discovered, click this link!
In 2019, we opened The Motor Palace Mercantile, an old-style corner shop heavily influenced by our love of motorcycles and classic cars. The MPM features specialty foods, Danzeisen Dairy, plus vintage and new merchandise–all with an emphasis on Made-in-USA.
Life sometimes takes odd turns. Before moving to Winslow from the LA area, we imagined opening a store parttime in the historic district and spending the rest of our time riding motorcycles and traveling. And then Covid happened and we became the milk people. It’s a strange path we’ve taken but we’re enjoying the ride!

Brian, a third-generation motorcyclist, retired from a twenty-five-year career managing Harley-Davidson dealerships in December 2019 so he could fulfill his dream of living full time in Winslow. He spends any free moment he has either riding, tinkering, or staring in awe at his two-wheeled contraptions. Or drinking coffee and eating tacos. Lots of tacos.
