Our antiques business began in 2000 but was really "born" much earlier. Celeste is the daughter of antiques dealers from Illinois and has been around and participated in the business for over 50 years including 20 years as the owner of a gift/gallery business. Kurt is an artist and holds a B.A. in Art History from Knox College in Galesburg, IL. His professional life before antiques included advertising and publishing work as well as commercial model shipbuilding and selling his own original artwork in various media. We both love antiques including jewelry, paintings and prints, decorative arts, antique photographs, ephemera and more. Celeste's area of interest is the jewelry, ephemera and decorative arts. Kurt specializes in paintings and prints, antique photography and decorative arts. We both have a wide ranging interest in history and in other areas of the antiques field as well. We try to provide customers with affordable, interesting and beautiful additions to their collections in whatever field.
