Corner Antiques 2 Opens at 52 Great Road


Corner Antiques 2 opened earlier this month at 52 Great Road which previously housed a showroom for Harvard Green Builders. I recently spoke with Jan McGrath, the owner of Corner Antiques 2. Jan originally opened up the first Corner Antiques at the old Blake Block in 2008 and then moved it around the corner to 53R Great Road.

The new shop looks directly on to Great Road
While Jan likes the current location and layout of her first Corner Antique store, it does not have high visibility from the main road so she decided to open up a second location. Although this location is smaller, it gets a lot more exposure. According to Jan, there already have been a number of people who noticed it while driving by and decided to stop in.

The store host a wide variety of antiques and collectibles.
As far as collectibles, Jan mentioned there is now less interest in traditional antiques and tchotchkes. She explained that many people from the next generation no longer want to wash dishes, dust or spend a lot of time cleaning antiques. On the flip side, she has seen a lot more interest in memorabilia, especially from the 1960's.

Two collectibles on display at the new store.

Jan gets most of her antiques and collectibles from auction and estate sales. She also takes some items on consignment. In addition to her two stores, Jan also offers estate sales management which involves advertising the sale itself, organizing merchandise, pricing and staging a home in order to maximize the value of it's assets.

The new store is currently open Friday to Sunday to start. She hopes to expand the hours in the next few months.

Comments:
This new store should get a lot more exposure which should also help drive sales for the original store. Since the second stores has very limited hours, it was smart to add a sign referencing the original location. I'm wondering if adding the word annex to the name (i.e. Corner Antiques Annex) would make it more obvious that the main store was right nearby.

Corner Antiques 2 is a very nice shop, I really like antiques. But displaying antiques is easy to get them dirty, a long towel or an best vacuums can help us clean it. In addition to regular antique cleaning, we can use a small size to make it faster.

Yes, you are correct. It's healthy to take a break, pack your bags, and head to some countryside or reserve a hut someplace and spend some time there with your friends and family. Every so often, you truly need a much-needed break from this hectic, fast-paced city life that wears us out. When I was a student, I used to become so worn out from my online lessons that I decided to visit somewhere rural for two to three weeks. I hired these people, MCA Aged Leads, to help me with my tests, and they not only completed them but also earned me A scores.
