Meet the Owner: HGTV’s Cari Cucksey
Cari Cucksey, host of HGTV’s Cash & Cari and her husband Vince created, The Vault, a venue inside their circa 1860’s bank building and fell in love with historic Holly while doing so.
But this couple isn’t stopping there! They not only call Holly their home but they have big plans to help this small town thrive. Besides reviving The Vault, this power couple has already bought and rehabbed 3 homes in Holly to sell and that’s just the beginning.
“There’s so much opportunity here in Holly that we recently purchased the vintage high school. It’s a 44,000 sq. foot building. There was a famous architect who helped design the building that has so much potential,” said Cucksey.
“We actually have plans to turn the school into an event venue space; corporate events, weddings and a boutique hotel which is very much needed in our area.”
From its historical buildings and unique small businesses, to the railroad crossings and frequent train whistles Holly’s unique history spans more than 150 years.With a passion for antiques and collectibles, Cari began buying, selling and trading when she was only 12 years old.
