Benefiting From Familial Admiration of Antiques
Pat & Rich Garthoeffner search for one-of-a-kind antiques with original paint, including weathervanes, folk art, textiles, decorative arts as well as early children’s play things. Through the years, the Garthoeffner’s have exhibited at some of the finest antique shows in the country and are thrilled to add the NH Antiques Show to their list. Chris and Bernadette Evans have both grown up in families in the antique business. Christopher’s grandparents owned an antique shop near Bethany Beach. Bernadette's mother was an antique dealer for nearly fifty years in the Long Island area. The Evans’ tend to pick merchandise without a regional prejudice and buy things that they find beautiful.
“We like to surround ourselves with things that make us smile, and we think other collectors feel the same way,” stated Bernadette.
