The new businesses, located on East Washington Street, are com- prised of Helen's Antiques, owned by Helen Costa; Tin Eagle Antiques, owned by June and Jerry Dean; Naive Simplicity, owned by Jan and Craig Phillips; and Nan and Buck's Antiques, owned by Nan and Buck Rogers. Response has been encourag- ing, according to Mrs Costa. A guest book kept near the entrance to the building showed large numbers of visitors from the Greenbrier Valley, in addition to 11 states and one for- eign country. "And that's only the first three days," Mrs Costa said. One third of them have been from outside Greenbrier County. When asked why antiques ap- peal to so many people, Mrs Costa said, '1 think a lot of people like to took around antique shops to ~e what certain items are selling for. Maybe they have some similar an- tiques in their homes, and they want to see how much they may be worth. Also, people like to look at unique things--those which aren't being made anymore." June Dean, of Tin Eagle An- tiques, said, "1 especially enjoy 'primitives'--furniture from the Doctor Darr Is Delegate and Helen Costa J 1700's and early 1800's I like to re- search the history behind them. Wouldn't it be fascinating if you could meet a person that old? Think of what they could tell you." Mrs Dean commented on the wear marks of antique furniture. "If you look at the hand marks on doors and drawers, made by repeated us- age over the years, you may learn some interesting things about ari- tiques.

As my hus- band Jerry works with the wood in restoring antiques he sees qualities in the piece a customer would nor- mally overlook. We've also found letters, hat pins, buttons, gloves--a lot of things---in the drawers of an- tiques we've purchased Antiques are a fun way to find out about the past." Mrs Dean said Monroe and Greenbrier counties were home to several noted cabinet makers. "We are fortunate to have found several local pieces. We always try to trace the history of them. In fact, no mat- ter where we purchase a piece of antique furniture from, we try to find a bit of the history behind it." The 1,875-square-foot building is rented by the four dealers, who share the responsibility of manning it during operating hours. It is open every day but Sunday.
