A Warrenton native, Carter spent much time growing up on Main Street where his parents owned and operated the Stable Door for 35 years. While a student at the University of Virginia, he worked as a ladder runner and dishwasher in the kitchen of the C&O Restaurant. After graduating he remained in Charlottesville working in restaurants until a departure into the wine world led him to become the Southeast Regional Sales manager for the leading importer of South African wines, Cape Classics. During this time, he met and married Kathleen who had apprenticed as a bench jeweler and then managed a specialty fine jewelry store. Following Kathleen’s dream to open her own business, the couple returned to Warrenton in 2004 and opened Carter & Spence, Ltd. in the former home of Hurst Jewelers on Main Street. Both Carter and Kathleen remain active in Old Town and greater Warrenton/Fauquier preservation organizations. The couple has a son, Hugh, and a dog named Rosie.
