Antiques Shop to Open on Main

Staff Reports

Crafty Creations was closed last week while the wall between 68 and 63 Main St. was opened up.

Wondering about that working going on at 63 Main St. in the Empire Building? That's the preparation for Empire Antiques, which is opening in the former Suncatcher Glass studio. We hear the opening could be this week.

The antique shop's a bit of a collaborative venture. It's going to be owned by James Montepare (who was issued a antiques dealer license from the City Council last month) but share an accessway with Crafty Creations.

A doorway's been opened up between the adjoining spaces. Creations, now in its sixth year, will help manage sales for the antiques side for Montepare, who's the city superintendent of schools. Montepare has been selling his pieces at a couple other locations.

The two spaces combined will come to about 4,000 square feet, making the two shops the largest retail space on the sunny side of the street.

Suncatcher was operated by Anna Kronick for several years. Kronick's known for her beautiful stained-glass and papercut work. We hear she's planning a career change by will still be creating beautiful items at home.

Oops, Creations is the name of the store. I just can't get that old Crafty part out of my head.
