Dan had been dabbling in selling antiques since 1982 and
had a small business going when he met Rick. Rick soon
joined Dan in the business and the old paint got in his
blood. A quick study with a keen business sense, Rick
took the business from their little 500 square foot building
to a larger structure next door.
that this was just not challenging enough to meet their
long term needs, Rick and Dan began searching for a larger
building to house their dream of a quality antique mall.
In 1998, the Clines TrueValue Hardware Store, just
three blocks from their Little Antique Store on Highway
101, closed and the owners gave wings to Rick and Dans dream.
