The Story

Peddled Wares came about when Grant and Mary moved into a cute old house with no storage. They had twice as much furniture as they needed and an embarrassing amount of decor. Mary sold what they didn’t need online and discovered that she had made enough money to fund all the moving related expenses and then some. Not only was it easy on the budget, but it’s led to a whole new approach to possessions. They’ve been able to pass along items they don’t need to help those that do, divert usable goods from the landfill and at the same time are freed from lugging extra stuff around next time they move. As you’ve probably heard before “Own your stuff, don’t let it own you.”

What do we do?


Rooted Concepts is an all-in-one technical shop.  Whether you need software developed, a website set up, or a mobile app created, we’re here to help you get what you want.  It doesn’t matter if you’re an expert in technology, or brand new to it, we can teach or provide you with the tools you need to accomplish your goals.  We’ve had the pleasure of helping graduate students do their PhD work as well as large companies review their architecture and software design practices; any need you have, we’re here to guide you.

In an era where everybody is rushing to create “The Next Big Thing”, we take pride in not rushing through a job.  Instead, we spent effort up from identifying the goal and helping you think through your needs.  Not just from a technical standpoint, but identifying your business needs and how a technical solution can help you reach your goals.  Once the goal is identified, we rapidly execute a plan to provide you with the solution you’re looking for.

However, if you’re not looking for a new solution but rather need a seasoned technology veteran to review your design and craftsmanship, we’re also at your service.  We have experience in technology of all kinds: from C/C++ on embedded systems, to n-tier web applications using Java or PHP, to client-side apps build with Javascript, jQuery, or ReactJS among others.  There’s no technology or need outside of our skill set!

Don’t overthink contacting us – estimates are free and you’ve got nothing to lose by dropping us a line!
