For the last year and a half I’ve been popping over to Pine Mountain, Georgia to feed/fuel my love of antiques. I will forever be in the debt of my friend, Nadine for taking me over there for the first time in the Fall of 2013. That's Nadine with Dawn, the store manager of Sweet Home Antiques.
Over this last year and a half I’ve shared countless pieces that I’ve found at Sweet Home Antiques. Many of you have sent me emails asking if I’d share the entire store and the tent sale so here I am getting around to that. As I share the eye candy, I’d like to also share the store and the story of how the owners of Sweet Home Antiques and Sweet Home Plantation came to be those owners.
Recently, I sat down with Bruce one of the owners and just ask him to tell me the story. It jut might be a story I'd like to hear him tell me over and over!
At that point the they hadn’t thought about the antique business. There were many things in the home that they didn’t need or couldn’t use and opted to sell those. They got a booth at what is now Old Chipley Market and began to fill it with a host of antiques. Not English antiques yet but that would come later.
I had wondered how they came to be interested in English Antiques. Bruce reported that the market determined what types of antiques they had.
Join me later in the week to read more of their story. The focus will be on their Tent Sale and how that came to be.
If you would like please visit their websites, Sweet Home Plantation and Sweet Home Antiques.
