Monty Howard loves to laugh. According to Monty, “Sometimes too loud. Sometimes like a hyena from the plains of Africa, but that’s my thing!”    What a great outlook. His reclaimed furniture reflects his joy of life. Most of his furniture is painted white or beautiful current colors, and easy to live with. And you will find a large collection from which to choose.
Monty loves sailing but especially his family. He has two children, Grant 16.5 and Shaun 15 who has a song on iTunes!   Check out Monty’s shop out front on the Veranda. He’s sure to provide you a laugh or two.

If you love a true treasure hunt, Jeff Miller’s shop is for you!

Jeff developed a passion for antiques from his grandmothers and parents where he learned the importance of the past and gained an appreciation of antiques’ simple beauty. He acquired a large collection of McCoy pottery over the years. He didn’t become a dealer until 1994. He sold at historic Lakewood for 6 years and has been at Lakewood 400 for 3 years.
Jeff’s passion is and always has been pottery, porcelain and glassware, but that is a small part of the treasures in his shop today. If you are searching for something unique, you may find it here although you may have to dig a little to uncover it! Fun! You’ll find decoratives both artistic and functional, lamps and chandeliers, linens, mid-century modern … you name it … it’s there, even a old portable fireplace perfect for your holiday setting! He offers “affordable” art (originals and one of a kind). But one thing he enjoys the most is mixing different elements, styles and eras.
Jeff grew up on a farm in Rome. Outside, he seems a quiet man, but inside he feels he should have been a comedian. Just get him talking! He loves gardening, the piano, and music, and refers to Lakewood 400 dealers as his closest friends and family.
Be sure to check out this shop in Hall C. It’s full of treasures!

Most of the time, The Magpie, Ann Osborne’s shop is filled with garden and nature oriented treasures which reflect the background of this talented lady. Ann is a creative artist who has spent years painting murals in homes across the US.
   But in September and October, her shop transforms into “The Witches Apothecary”. 
All year she concocts
potions which she offers for the Halloween fan with all the trimmings. With that little twinkle in her eye, you have to wonder if Ann is really a witch … a good witch for sure! This is a fabulous shop to see. 

Ann's Bacon Cookers . Great Gift!

Ann’s Bacon Cookers .

   Ann does have her famous Bacon Cookers in her shop this month (they make great gifts) among the skulls, pumpkins, crows, spiders …

TIM SCHOEN ~ HALL H 524 October 2, 2013

Antiques, Art and Objects of Interest. That’s the short description of Tim Schoen Antiques. His eclectic collection covers the late 1800’s to the 1930’s with a few items up to 1950. He features Folk Art, especially Georgia and North Carolina potters, and some higher end pottery. Another passion … older steamer trunks which he refurbishes. You’ll find sports memorabilia and with Christmas coming up, maybe an antique fishing lure or other unique gift for the sports enthusiast in your life. One more passion, Tim loves boxes and containers of all kinds. That’s just a few of the treasures you’ll find in Tim’s shop. There is so much more to see!
     Tim is retired from the educational publishing business but has been an antique dealer for over twenty years. As with most of us, the hunt is most enjoyable. Of the 15-20 shows Tim and his partner, Sue, do a year, he considers Lakewood 400 the most important.
     Check out this interesting shop in Hall H 524.

Dollie Caruthers has been with Lakewood for years with her fun and somewhat historical shop. For sure you will enjoy the tunes playing on the “record player”.Stuff Like That features a great collection of Vinyl Records, all RPM’s including children’s and sound tracks.
     Packed in there are license plates, toys and books, ephemera from the early 1900’s through the 1970’s, vintage wine bottles, advertisements and textiles, to start. Plan to spent some time and peek in the corners. You might be surprised at what you find here.
     Dollie relocated to Georgia from Mineola (Long Island), NY in 1994. She is pictured with partner Willie Bell. Don’t forget to ask Dollie the historical significance of her pieces.

RAY BURNETTE ~ HALL C 120-121 October 2, 2013

Ray Burnette started playing music at 14 years old. Raised in Alpharetta, Georgia, he plays the guitar, drums, bass, harmonica, fiddle and probably a little of anything else put in his hands. About 40 years ago, he started collecting Cookie Jars and old Clothes Sprinklers. It’s a most interesting combination, but you will see an awesome collection of both in his shop all the way back in Hall C. Beautiful instruments he collected over the years which he is now parting with. But what’s even better, there is usually a concert going on back there!
If you are musically inclined or know someone who is, this shop is a must. Don’t forget Christmas coming up! And as for the Cookie Jars, who doesn’t love cookies or remember the jar your Mother or Grandmother had!
See Ray’s treasures in Hall C and hear him play!
