If you need a corner bracket or fireplace screen made in a specific style or size, Iris Eiseman is the one to talk to.
Iris has been manufacturing both interior and exterior Iron Decor since 1997. In her collection you’ll find all kinds of home decor, wall decor, unique fireplace screens, planters, brackets, garden hose holders … to name a few items. Much is cast iron, sometimes a starting point, then Iris designs and welds to create the perfect piece.
Creative talent runs in the family of Eisemans. Across the aisle from Iris is Hilary, also known as “The Purse Lady” and one of Iris’ five, “fun and fabulous” children.
Iris began life in New York City and came to Atlanta in 1977 via Charlotte, NC. She joined the Lakewood family at Historic Lakewood in 1997 and has been at Lakewood 400 since it opened.
Meet Iris in Hall B 64. Take home a great iron creation or have her “sculpt” one just for you.
CANDIED COUSINS ~ VERANDA 8-11 May 14, 2013Posted by comeintomygarden in Antiques, Vintage.

Mary Kinsel and Tammy Grier’s mothers were sisters. These first cousins are best friends and admitted “shoppers that need an intervention!” They buy beautiful vintage memories of times past, bring them into their homes for a stay and then pass them on to friendly buyers at Lakewood. Their collection runs the gambit from buttons to large pieces of furniture. But a quick look at this shoppe won’t do it. You need to go on a treasure hunt looking high, low, and even rumble a bit. You will be amazed what you may find here!
Along with their treasures, they offer colorful conversation , the history about their objects, and lots of laughter. They will also happily seek out any item you haven’t been able to find yourself.

The Wilkerson’s enjoy the outdoor atmosphere of the Veranda in front of Lakewood 400 where she has been for four years. Jennifer wasn’t a dealer at the historic Lakewood, but shopped every month and furnished their house from there.
They have built quite a following for their authentic collection of primatives, collectibles, antiques farm implements, authentic western wear, lighted traffic signals, and so much more!
When asked if she offers any special services … “my opinion!” says Jennifer and is quick to add that’s a joke.
Danny and Jennifer have been married 47 years and have collected many things throughout the years. From the beginning they enjoyed going to Antique shows. They have 2 children and 4 grandchildren and love going to their baseball and soccer games.
For great primitive antiques and maybe an opinion or two, visit the Wilkerson’s out front in Veranda 6/7.
GARDEN GIRLS ~ HALL H 513 May 3, 2013Posted by comeintomygarden in Art.
Tags: Art, botanicals, fine art
If you love gardening, flowers, or fairies, you will love meeting Fine Artist Michele Alcock.
Most of her life, Michele has been growing, foraging, dissecting, pressing, and drying botanicals … flowers, leaves and seeds, 12 months of the year. Every detail in her artwork is completely “painted” with botanicals, even down to the tiny seeds for eyes. Her amazing originals are reproduced using museum quality papers into Fine Art Prints, Cards, and Giclees on canvas. Michele does admit to embellishing her prints with tiny Swarovski crystals occasionally.
Michele has been honored at many art shows and has been selected as one of five artist to compete for the artwork for the 2013 Yellow Daisy Festival.
Enjoy meeting Michele and seeing her incredible fine art in Hall H 513.

Keith Gowins comes from Ohio loaded down with a ton of architectural salvage and accessories. Among this, great lighting and globes of every size and shape! You’ll find antique doors and columns and a wide assortment of very unique collectibles.
But Keith’s passion and primary business is antique fireplace accessories … andirons, tools, screens, grates and more.
Keith started antiquing at the tender age of 16 and progressed from collector to dealer. He left the corporate world of business management behind in 1988 and has been a full time dealer ever since.
You’ll enjoy meeting this knowledgeable dealer out front on the Veranda, first booth as you come in. And if you have been searching for that one unique piece, he probably either has it or knows where to get it!

Terry Flamant was born in Belgium in a family of weavers and designers who owned Flamant Home Interiors. He came to Georgia 20 years ago to run a carpet distribution center and found that, after raising two children, being a “lifestyle designer” is far more fun. So he comes to Lakewood 400 with a bevy of Pine Antique furniture just waiting to accent your home or mountain cabin. Along with it … designer textiles, pillows, rugs, kitchenware and collectibles from Belgium.
You’ll find this most interesting and delightful gentleman in Hall B 82.

ERIC HELMS ~ Hall A 5-6 March 12, 2013Posted by comeintomygarden in Antiques.

These are just a few of the questions Eric Helms knows the answers to. As a matter of fact, every collectible in his shop has an interesting story and the storyteller in him is more than happy to share!
Eric comes to Lakewood 400 all the way from Indianapolis, Indiana, but this true Southerner, a Georgia Tech graduate, is eager to make the South … Georgia, North Carolina or South Carolina … his home again.
Although his love of collectibles is evident, Eric has three specialties. The first, Scripophily, deals with Old/Antique Stocks and Bonds. He is one of the top 25 dealers in the US. He has over 50 years experience in the second, Numismatics, the collection of coins. He specializes more in US type coins and silver, belongs to most key groups, and is always happy to help the younger collector.
As far as Paper Money, his third area, Eric specializes in US Currency, Obsoletes and Civil War Southern currency and papers including Confederate Bonds. He is a member of SPMC and PCDA.
Eric had quite an extensive business career with Fortune 500 Companies. From his love of music, Eric says “I probably should have lived in the Big Band era.” This total people person also enjoys reading, writing, and, of course, storytelling.
Checking out Eric’s shop is an experience you are sure to enjoy and will probably learn a lot. But in Eric’s own words ” I haven’t found a cork big enough to stop me when I start a story. Just tell me to shut up if you have enough!”
