Insider Guide 2010
he Antique Gallery is great for two reasons. If you know exactly what you're looking for, ask and you often shall receive. (The staff knows its product that well!) If you're not seeking anything specific, wind your way among antique furniture, jewelry, collectibles and art to discover that special something you didn't know you needed.
Many believe the key to business success is "location, location, location." For the Antique Gallery which moved out of the site of the old Ute Theater into a 10,000-square-foot building on Wahsatch Avenue the adage couldn't be truer. "The location here is so much more practical," says owner Jason Carr. "And, so much more comfortable," adds his wife and co-owner, Tina Carr. They don't miss the dark, drafty Ute Theater and its sloping floors, and neither do their customers. In just over a year since the move, the new building has helped the business attract more than 50 dealers and 100 consignors. "When you've got that many different dealers," says Tina, "the amount of inventory is just so varied that it really does impress the customer."
