Dovetail Antiques Family Photos

We invite you to view these old photos of our family. Antiques have always been a common denominator and a great source of shared pleasure in our family. They show our family buying, selling, and collecting antiques through the generations.
 
I am a third generation antiques dealer and our daughter, Robin, has recently started her own antiques business, InSpirit Antiques.
 
Antiques are alive and well in our family. We enjoy living with them everyday!
