Young Dealers Getting it Right

Who They Are and What They Do

By: Julie VanDolen • Jul 07, 2010 • 0 Comments

At, we think it is important to recognize young innovators in the business, as well as the seasoned veterans who were the pioneers of this industry.  While there is no denying the brilliance and tenacity of dealers like my very own grandfather Clements, I continue to be impressed (and amazed!) at the growing number of young dealers making a break for it on their own.  The antiques business isn't always an easy one, and we want to credit some young guns out there making it work.  Here's the start of a great list we plan to add many names to over the years...
