Member of the Month
Robert Conrad Antiques was established twenty three years ago as a full time business. My wife and I Joan started as serious and passionate antique collectors in the mid 1970's. In order to learn and gain knowledge, we did what many have done by visiting antique shops, learn from the dealers, visit museums, attend antique shows, go to auctions and compile a library of reference books. Having graduated from the University of Richmond with a Bachelor of Science degree in 1972, and Joan from Penn State University in 1973, I was employed in retail sales management for 25 years. This background laid the foundation and was very beneficial in regards to people and sales skills, finances, interior design, and led the ground work for a successful antiques business.
We live in central Pennsylvania in an 18th century stone mill house. Although we don't have an open shop, we maintain booth space at the Big Valley Antique Center in Milroy PA. We presently exhibit at 15 antique shows a year that comprise the states of PA, Tenn, Ohio, NY, VA and NH. Our merchandise consists of fraktur, folk art, textiles, pottery (redware & stoneware), period and country furniture with an emphasis on old or original surfaces.
We love our job and feel blessed to have met and developed great relationships with so many clients and fellow dealers.
