The store also carries newer items that collectors and homeowners want.Â All the pieces combine toÂ create aÂ blend of comfort and style perfect for collectors and homeowners alike. Â Janet HatmakerÂ was selected as a Hamilton County Star forÂ her outstandingÂ customer service as well as for the wayÂ she chooses vendors whose items complement one another, while still being unique and visually interesting. Janet and her staffÂ personallyÂ greet customers as they enter and exit. She also will work with her vendors to help negotiate price or answer questions from a customer. Janet has been in the antiques business for more than 20 years. The way Janet embraces the past without sacrificing modern customer serviceÂ isÂ a great example of the kind of service we think you will find throughout Hamilton County, Indiana.
