PIERCETON — The Pierceton Chamber of Commerce is proud to announce that Blue Pearl Antiques has been selected as the April 2018 Business of the Month.
Blue Pearl Antiques has been a staple within our community for more than 10 years in many different capacities and we are proud to honor them this month.
Owners Dave and Joanne Taylor started their business experience in our community by opening Blue Lion Coffee House that many throughout the years were able to have lasting memories with their loved ones. Although the coffee house has since closed, their hand roasted coffee is still brewed and sold next door at Odd Fellows Café and Coffee.
Dave Taylor explains that he has always had a passion for collecting interesting and unique antique items. Thus, when the opportunity came to have a store front, they opened an antique store. Blue Pearl Antiques specializes in sales and purchases of artwork from 1800 to contemporary along with fine and costume jewelry.
Blue Pearl Antiques participates in many antique shows ranging from Ann Arbor Antique Show to shows in Miami, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York and Baltimore. Taylor explains that this gives him ample opportunities to come into contact with very unique and specialized items, bringing magical pieces back here to Pierceton.
He explains he has had pieces of jewelry from the Duke of Winsor and artwork that has been in Austin Fine Arts Museum sold from his store front in Pierceton.
Do you have family heirlooms that you have always wanted to know their financial worth? Or are you having a garage sale and want to ensure you’re getting the worth of your liquidation? Blue Pearl Antiques specializes in appraisal of such items with visual appraisals being free. But if needed for documentation purposes, there would be an attached minimal cost.
Blue Pearl Antiques can be found in downtown Pierceton, located at 112 N. First St. The business is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays, and from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday.
They can be contacted via telephone at (574) 594-9800 or via e-mail at [email protected]. Blue Pearl Antiques can also be found on Facebook or at their website at www.bluepearlstatejewelry.com.
