ANTIKS After 14 days of rain, is the ark nearby? Don’t think so, but I know one thing for sure, Antik’s next container is just around the corner. Actually, just going through the Panama Canal. We are surprised at the wonderful reception we have had so far, during the supposedly slow months. We started with 42 tables of all sizes, a store and basement filled with cabinets, chairs, and home accessories, and a 3,000 square foot warehouse filled with more. The new container can’t get here soon enough. Come on in. We have to make room for the new stuff, and there are wonderful opportunities on tables. A Java Rosewood table that seats 10 at 30% off, and two others that will seat 8, also 30% off. Several smaller teakwood tables at less than $500, and some small side tables priced from $120. How about two beautiful multimedia coffee tables at 40% off. All wow things great in any style mountain home. All at 172 N Main, and only at ANTIK. Located near SAUCED, The CHOCOLATE BEAR, & SUNBURST MARKET.
