    A grand opening is set for Friday and Saturday for a new vintage and antique shop on Charleston’s West Side. 

    Tesori: Vintage Home, Fine Art, & Antiques will host their ribbon-cutting at noon on Friday. 

    The store, located at 418 Virginia Street West in the Five Corner area, is co-owned by Eyewitness News anchor Stefano DiPietrantonio and David Riter. 

    DiPietrantonio said he and Riter have been pickers since they were kids. 

    “We’ve been collecting everything since forever,” he said. 

    DiPietrantonio said the merchandise offered will be “fun funky and affordable,” and that the store specializes in distressed vintage home décor and antiques. 

    He said the pieces are “one of a kind.” 

    “They’re our own mixed colors pieces and they’re not found anywhere else,” he said. 

    DiPietrantonio stressed that the one of the goals of the shop is to offer quality merchandise at an affordable price. 

    “The trick is to make go,” he said, regarding moving items. 

    In addition to vintage items, DiPietrantonio plans for the shop to offer a Tutto Biscotti Bakery in the future, featuring seven flavors of biscotti from a family recipe. 

    “It’s seven flavors, for the seven hills of Rome he said. “The flavors are named for crazy Italian family members.” 

    DiPietrantonio said the most popular flavor is cranberry-orange vanilla, with white chocolate infused with orange oil. 

    Kanawha County Commission President Kent Carper and Charleston Mayor Danny Jones will be on hand for the ribbon cutting. 

    The shop will be open for the grand opening from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday.
