How to stay current – CA antique dealer does a good job

Here’s a cool article out of Costa Mesa, CA about a longtime L.A. Antiques Dealer who opened up a shop that takes into account changing tastes in collectors and styles.

The place is call Big Daddy’s Antiques, and owner Shane Brown is approaching his first strictly retail antiques outlet with an open-minded approach.

I know there has been much griping among traditionalists in the antique world about the influx of Modern, industrial and design elements into shows and shops, but it’s simply the reality of the business right now and of new collectors. Very few people just collect one thing or style only. It’s about mixing elements.

The article’s interesting and the Big Daddy Web site is well-done. It’s a good look at a dealer keeping up with modern trends in collecting antiques.
