For more than 25 years Melissa and her husband Gary have been a part of Riverside Centre Antique Mall. 25 years ago Gary did upholstery for guests and vendors in the mall and Melissa can still be found in booth 12. Their style is a combination of old meets new and Melissa says that she still has a love for the business.
So now a days Gary is still doing upholstery for vendors, but what else is he up to?
Like so many of us at the mall,he is discovering new ways to re-invent and re-purpose items that still have a lot of life in them. The table that Gary re-designed pictured above has history, style and an artist's touch all combined into one piece!
Gary says, "This is an old Graeter's cast iron table base and I paired it up with this beautiful wood table top that has a gorgeous granite and slate design in the center."
Melissa comments on her husband as being a "true artist" and with a piece like this it shows.
Our customers at the Riverside Centre Antique Mall have a great appreciation for unique and one of a kind items. And our vendors love to provide them with a variety of wonderful choices. The spirit of craftsmanship and design showns with the creativity that you will find on display at Riverside, so if you haven't paid us a visit in awhile... come out and see us! You wont be disappointed!
