Member Of The Month
Ed Becker of Colony Shop Antiques and Art
The Colony Shop has been in business since 1924. At the present location since 1956. Justin Beauchat and Robert Aldrich were the founding partners. In the early 1970s, I worked in Fayetteville in cost accounting, purchasing, and management. While there I became interested in arts & antiques I started stopping at Colony Shop. I soon became a very good friend of Justin's. He taught me quite a lot because we had the same interests. I started my own business and he continued to be my adviser. After his death in 1983, I bought the business & the property. I was extremely proud to continue the business and the reputation of knowledge, quality, and integrity. Around 2005 I noticed a change in the market, both locally and nationally in the arts and antique market. After some analysis, I realized the market was not going to change. I decided to pursue certification as an appraiser. In 2007 I completed the USPAP appraisal course with the Appraisal Foundation in WDC. I continue to abide by their standards. In doing so I have developed associations with museums, many lawyers & individuals. We are located only minutes from downtown Syracuse.
