Alex-RaskinAlex Raskin Antiques

Gay Friendly Antique Store in Savannah, GA

 

So, I am in Alexandra's Antique Mall on Broughton Street a few years ago and I glance to my right and see...Barbara Streisand and James Brolin. I go outside and - trembling - wait for them to come out. When they do, I walk up - they are initially taken aback and I say "Ms. Streisand I have an antique shop here in Savannah. I think you will like my stuff and I would open up for you any hour of the day or night..."  She thanks me and says she is exhausted,  having been antiquing all day. I give her my card and never saw her again.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When I started out in this business in the early 70's Savannah was a different place. No SCAD, no art galleries or coffee shops. The lions of the antique trade were Jim Williams, Arthur Smith - Francis McNairy was up and coming as was John Lee. I didn't know my ass from my elbow. I watched these guys and learned from many mistakes, and thirty five years went by. I like to think I have developed my own style...Come and see for yourself. Never a cover or a minimum...
