Photos by Alicia Knadler BUSINESS GREENVILLE COTTAGE ANTIQUES AND COLLECTIBLES Alicia Knadler Indian Valley Editor aknadler@plumasnews.com Those who love antiquing and exploring unique shops will enjoy a visit to Greenville Cottage Antiques and Collectibles, where own- er Gay Jacobs has turned her collecting hobby into a busi- ness. She celebrates her sixth year in business this Septem- ber, and thanks her sister-in- law for getting her started in antiquing many years ago. Over the years she ac- quired so much stuff, it over- flowed out of her home and into storage. Her major collections in- clude McCoy Pottery, vintage postcards, linens, handker- chiefs and aprons, gently used baby clothes, china and glassware, Nancy Ann dolls and trolls, though she has much more, including furni- ture, decorating accessories and kitchen things. She'd collected so many things she knew she needed to go into business and sell some of it. Years later, she is still pulling items out of stor- age to do just that, and filling the shop with more recently obtained items from her trav- els and from people who bring in items she might like to buy. Her dream is to someday rent a truck and go with her sister to the Endless Yard Sale that is set up along High- way 127 through Ohio, Ken- tucky, Tennessee and Alaba- ma the first weekend in Au- gust each year. Jacobs and her husband, Gary, bought the building on Highway 89 in 1996, after which they came up for work- ing vacations while renovat- ing it with help from several local contractors. "It's an ongoing process," she laughs, for now that the shop and residence are fixed up, they've been working on a flagstone patio. Their youngest son, Josh, moved to Greenville last sum- mer, and he's been helping them as well. decided to move back up north in 1990s. Jacobs fell in love with In- dian Valley and talked her husband into buying the old gun shop from Gould Fickardt. She's met lots of new friends since then, and espe- cially enjoys it when she meets those who come to spend the day in Indian Val- ley, visiting all six of the an- tique and collectible shops in Greenville and Crescent Mills and maybe staying to eat in one of the local restau- rants. She also helps people find that perfect little gift, or is happy to make out a gift cer- tificate for those who know the shopping trip is part of the fun. Greenville Cottage An- tiques and Collectibles is at 147 Highway 89, in the center of Greenv file. A web page with more in- formation can be found in the business listings at indian- valley.net.

Deadline approaching to enter July 4 craft fair in Chester M.

Sponsored by the Chester Lions Club, the show is held each year in the Chester Park. The ac- ceptance final date for par- ticipant applications is May 1. While the show date seems a bit off in the future for most, it isn't for Chester Lions Club event coordinators Carol Deurloo and Rita Isbell. "As this is a juried show, I would highly encourage interested artisans and crafters to submit their ap- plication packets as soon as possible," said Deurloo. She said time was impor- tant because the applica- tion packets are extensive. Participants are required to submit photographs of their work and other de- tailed information. "We really want to make sure everyone understands they have just over a month until the applica- tion deadline." Applications are still available at the Lassen Gift Company, the Chester Li- brary and the Chester - Lake Almanor Chamber of Commerce. "For this event, complet- ed applications must be received at P.O, Box 467, Chester, CA 96020 by May 1," said Lions Club mem- ber and treasurer Jack Isbell.
