Frank and Tammy Irwin took a gamble on the cityâs Main Street business district when they opened their Timeless Antiques & Collectibles store, back in March of 2012, and it appears they picked a winner.
Not only have the Irwins done well gathering and selling area memory pieces, traditional antique offerings, jewelry and nic knacks, they are also a growing business and an example of what could be possible for many other small business owners in the city one-time âpremiere business district.
The couple just moved into the former Cakey shop at 91 Main Street and tripled the square-footage they had at their past shop at 30 Main Street.
âI love it, I can display more items and people traveling on Main Street see us better here,â Tammy said of the new store while holding an evening reception for the businessâ customers and friends last week.
