I am an antique dealer and antique collector. I have had an online antique shop for 8 years and I am opening a live antique shop in Sept. 2008. I am located in Lenexa, Kansas.

I am also a wife, mother of 3 amazing women, a granny and human to 2 precious dogs.

I have had the pleasure of living in such places a Singapore and Mexico City but I was born in Texas and will always be a Texan no matter where I live, with Austin, Texas being my home.

I love my life with all its ups and downs. It has been an adventure and there is nothing I would change about any of it... even if I could.

Antique Dealers Needed for New Antique Shop

Category: Art / Creative
I am opening an antique shop in Old Town Lenexa, Kansas in Sept. 2008 and need a few more antique and collectible dealers to rent space.

My shop is built on a very unique concept not seen in antique shops and antique malls.

We will have an extensive antique resource and reference library on site for the public to use. Classes on a variety of topics will be held and open to the public.

Artists that consign their original work to us or rent space from us will have the option of having their own gallery showing if they want. I really want to promote local artists especially teen artists.

We will have fund raising events for local non-profit organizations and many other activities that give back to the community we live in.

Having experienced the world or renting space in antique malls I know how I would have liked to have been treated as an antique dealer. Our dealers will be treated well and will be part of the business. Their ideas, suggestions and critics will be taken to heart and changes made when and where possible.

My desire is to make this more than an antique shop. I want it to be a destination.
