When Lee's business out- grew its tiny space, she joined forces with three more women to open an antique and collectibles business that highlights each Woman's spe- cial interest. Susanne Bergum, Lawrence Street Mercantile; Linda Brennan, Attic Antiques; San- dra Lee, Village Antiques; and Athea Stephenson, Wings of Love, have opened Village Antiques & Associates at 585 Lawrence St. in Quincy. The enterprise works like a coop- erative: The women have their own business licenses and contribute inventory but retain individual ownership. The women take turns run- ning the shop, which is open seven days a week. Whoever is on duty can also take items on consignment to become part of her merchandise. She negotiates terms with the owner and splits the proceeds according to the agreement. Lee, a Quincy native, said, "I got the 'fever' in 1998 and began collecting and selling From Depression-era ware to silverware, Village Antiques & Associates have unique pieces for any table. Village Antiques & Associates Address: 585 Lawrence St., Quincy Phone number: 283-3699 Hours: 10 a.m. -4 p.m., seven days a week Details: Fine furniture, glassware, home decor and collectibles; consignments welcome; pickup and delivery service available. antiques and collectibles in Fallon." Her interest lies in country Western collectibles and rusty yard art, suchas old wagon wheels and galva- nized tubs. She also creates seasonal arrangements using silk florals, live houseplants and pinecones. Stephenson specializes in women's clothing and acces- sories, as well as domestic items,whether vintage or modern, handcrafted or manufactured. During the 1980s, the Plumas County Museum displayed Stephen- son's collection of vintage purses. She has since ex- panded her interests to in- clude vintage clothing and accessories. Brennan moved to Quincy in 1969 with her husband and daughter. With an apprecia- tion of fine and fiber arts, Brennan has also developed her interest in furniture restoration. She offers a line of Howard Products -- Restor- A-Finish -- at the shop. With an extensive back- ground in needle arts, Bergum plans to offer local- ly grown fibers and textiles in addition to her inventory of antiques and collectibles. In 2004, she opened EwePhoric Yarns in Arnold and subsequently moved to Quincy. The store's grand opening is May 12 and 13. The ladies also have an antiques and collectibles pickers' fair planned for June 23. Booth spaces will be available for sellers in the yard and parking lot. Stop by the shop and visit with whoever is on duty; they're a friendly and talka- tive bunch With many beauti- ful things to catch the eye. Linda Brennan, Susanne Bergum, Sandra Lee and Athea Stephenson (not shown) have joined forces to become Village Antiques & Associates at 585 Lawrence St. in Quincy. Chic may indeed be the word. Everything in the shop, left, is tastefully and imaginatively displayed, from vintage dothing to home decor. Photos by Mona Hill Derns plan public meeting in Portola Democrats will gather for a "Meet andOreet" Saturday, May 5, 10.0:to noon, at the Williams House Museum in Portola. Hosted by the Plumas County Democratic Central Committee, the Meet and Greet gives the public an op- portunity to come and get to know what Democrats are do- ing here in Plumas County. Chairwoman Trish Taylor and other members of the Plumas County Democratic Central Committee will host the event. Taylor will speak on finding sources for accurate, non-partisan information about state and national news. Taylor states, "What helps us make good decisions is un- biased facts and solid analy- sis, given a targeted goal." Material on the most current platforms of the Democratic, Party, both state and national, will be available to aid in im- proving knowledge of what the Democratic Party stands for. Information about Democ- ratic candidates James Reed PEPSA hosts cleanup day In an effort to open Plumas- Eureka State Park by Memori- al Day, the Plumas-Eureka State Park Association is ask- ing for volunteers to help clean up the park. After 18 month s of closure there are wood chips to be spread, Wafts to be cleaned, lawns to be raked, roads in the camp- ground to be swept and gener- al spring cleanup. The cleanup day is Saturday, May 12. All volunteers should wear long pants, work shoes, gloves, hats and have water bottles. Leaf and garden rakes, flat nose shovels and, if possible, wheelbarrows will be needed. Workers plan to start at 8 a.m. and be finished by noon. PESPA hopes the commu- nity will come up to the park and help get a head start on the opening. Organizers know everyone is busy on their own yard this time of year but think this could be a good time to have some com- munity involved fun. RSVP for the cleanup day to Jay Skutt, 836-4135. (running for Congress), Julie Griffith-Hatter (state Senate) and Robert Meacher (state As- sembly) will also be on hand. Plumas County voters are facing an interesting election year with several changes, Taylor notes. Who will be elected is much less certain than is usually the case, due in part to California's "open primary." The top two vote- getters in the primary elec- tion will appear on the No- vember ballot, regardless of party affiliation. Another change is the re- sult of redistricting; Plumas County is now in District 1, a very different piece of the map for Pluma s voters, with different demographics. Also, there are no incum- bents running in District l's congressional and Assembly races in this election. All the candidates for those races will be new to local voters. Taylor points out that there is a lot of information people need to have so they can vote in their best-interest. Morning beverages and pas- tries will be served at the May 5 gathering. All are invited. For more information, con- tact Taylor at 283-1936. Need help REPLACING or REPAIRING: DOORS TRIM WINDOWS PLUMBING ROOFING .
