Frankel moved to Baltimore more than 10 years ago after running similar shops in the Chicago area, including a Lakeview toy store that closed in 2014, called Uncle Fun. He is married to Bill Gilmore, executive director of the Baltimore Office of Promotion + the Arts.

The house at 1002 North Calvert Street house, originally a single family residence, is part of a row of Queen Anne-style residences known as Belvidere Terrace. Dating from the late 1800s, it had been converted to apartments when Frankel bought it, and he took it back to a single-family residence. He included many one-of-a-kind touches, including a third-floor bathroom with coins embedded in the walls, the work of local artist Loring Cornish.
