Member Of The Month
Missouri Plain Folk
My wife, Charline, and I began in the antique business in the late ‘80s somewhat by default. We had been involved in a completely unrelated business for near 25 years when we made the change. Our old business was slipping and we looked for a new direction.
Antiques were something we enjoyed from early on in our marriage. Living in Missouri German country, every weekend afforded the opportunity to go to farm sales where one could buy early handmade furniture or the farm for that matter! As a result, our focus has always been on rural Americana and folk art.
Early on we also became heavily involved in game boards, which became and still is a specialty of Missouri Plain Folk. Through this specific area of collecting we met and continue to work with a number of collectors. In 2001 I wrote the book Art of the Game which featured the collection of Selby Shaver.
We continue to sell privately and exhibit at shows from the rural midwest to The New Hampshire Antique Show in Manchester, New Hampshire.
