Through low cost spay/neuter programs aimed at both owned pets and free roaming cats, we will limit the number of litters born in our county and therefore decrease the numbers surrendered to the shelter.

ANTIQUES Then & Now

By Heather Bukovsky of Hunt & Gather Vintage Market Having been an avid antiquer most of my life and now a shop owner, has recently caused me to think about how much our business has changed. Gone are the days that new shops open full of glass cases and dark furniture. The shops that are opening now and are most popular today (in my opinion) are the shops which feature both antiques and vintage—old and new pieces styled together. As to what folks are buying, that has changed too! Furniture has become light and bright, distressed and re-purposed. Old is made new again, but with a twist. Vendor shops are meccas of design ideas with ladder or window ceilings, industrial lighting and painted walls. And with the advent of Pinterest, there is no shortage of ideas to inspire. Vendor booths are so creative now! My own shop displays a great group of creative vendors. The sales floor constantly changes and they are always coming up with new creative ways to show their items. Many antique shops have changed and now feature not only old but new as well. Shops are full of not only quality antiques and primitives, but also painted furniture and distressed pieces. It is safe to say "farmhouse-to-rustic" could run the market now. In the retail market, women can be primary shoppers and are very savvy. They not only want that white distressed dresser but they also want a primitive trencher for their farm table and a rusty old sap bucket for plants and flowers and old windows to hang family pictures in. I believe there will always be a market for good quality pieces and true antiques. The shops are changing with the times and are mixing all sorts of things together to appeal to a new type of “antiquer”. The following is an interview with Elaine Chandler & Co., of Troy, NH regarding her opinions.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS with Elaine Chandler of Chandler & Co., Troy, NH Heather: Do you feel the antiques market has changed in your area?

Heather: What made you decide to open your own shop?

Elaine: I provided childcare for 28 years. While I truly enjoyed that, I wanted a way

to express my creativity and passion. My family has always been in the antiques business and I love bringing new life to old pieces. Painting is truly in my blood.

Elaine: Yes, I do, customers are looking for unique, painted pieces but they don’t discount the unpainted. They are savvy shoppers and want items that are finished, but also pieces they can re-purpose themselves.

Heather: What types of items do you sell?

Heather: Do you think customers are looking for something different than

“Painted Ladies.” These are those gorgeous dressers from times past that I love to breathe new life into. They are stylish and remnants of a bygone era. We also create custom kitchen islands.

are looking for that special unique item to take home. It's about function and style. I try to stay on top of trends and I know when to paint a piece and when not to.

Elaine: I love to salvage old things, Home Décor, Vintage, Antiques and what I call

they were ten years ago? Elaine: Yes, I think the painted furniture boom has really taken off and customers

Heather: How do you feel the business has changed from when you first

Heather: What would you say you love about this business?

Elaine: The flexibility, the ability to be creative and help customers find that special piece. I also love that we are saving history while we work.

started? Elaine: I believe the focus has changed. People love the old things but not always

the old finishes. I feel there are a wealth of amazing paint products on the market from chalk paint to fusion mineral. Everything old can be made new again.

Heather: What would you say you dislike most about this business?

Elaine: . . . laughing . . . Not that much, but if I have to say one thing, I’d say being open on weekends. I am a beach bum at heart and having to be open every weekend makes it hard to get to the beach.

Heather: If you could let your customers know one thing about your business

what would it be? Elaine: I care a lot about what I do, I care about my customers. I am a people

Heather: Where would you like to see this business going in the next ten

person by nature. My husband is just amazing, he goes out picking and loves to show me his finds. We work hard to clean and prepare everything for sale. We truly want people to be happy with their purchases.

years? Elaine: I would love to see more colors becoming popular. I love reds, pinks and

blues. I think it’s great to mix in some vivid color into home design.

Elaine was a pleasure to interview and her shop is enchanting! She and her husband elegantly re-purpose and refresh both custom and antique pieces. They are both grateful for the talented people that are part of the shop and Chandler & Co., is conveniently located on the Troy Common in Troy, NH. If you are in the area and have not yet experienced a shop of this nature, Chandler & Co. is a great place to start! And if you are a "shop hopper", it is not to be missed!
