Meet The Staff

Since 1992, Ricardo "Rick" Paoli has owned and operated Rick's Olde Gold.  His colorful personality, straightforward style, and generous spirit have endeared him to the Willy Street community.  Rick's Olde Gold is now destination shopping for anyone strolling down Madison's most walkable, funky, and eclectic neighborhood. 

Paoli's 34 years of customer service experience includes four years operating Paoli Real Estate (commercial and rental property), and 14 years managing popular Madison restaurant Ovens of Brittany. 

Outside the shop, Rick spent 30 years behind the plate, playing baseball in Madison's City League.  He enjoys Running, Basketball, and Fishing, and is an avid Model Designer and Builder.  He loves live music, boasts an impressive yo-yo collection, and writes smart-alec rhymes like nobody's business.


Marco Martinez specializes in estates, antiques, and second-hand goods.  His customer service skills are renowned far and wide, always doing whatever he can to help whoever walks through the door. 

With over 10 years experience buying and selling second hand goods, Marco has both assisted and run professional estate sales, auctions, storefronts, and flea market booths.  At Greg Willett's Antiques, he cleaned out whole and partial estates, and prepared goods for resale.  With the Avalon Auction Center, he was the leading 'Ring Man', which made him responsible for setting the pace and directing the auction.
