Becky Baynard, Owner, Treasures Old & New

What makes your business so unique?

The uniqueness of my shop is the balanced combination of talented, devoted, and friendly dealers that work together to produce a pleasing atmosphere. This is evident in the customer base we have attracted since I opened in 2011. The shop is also unique in that it offers a wide selection including wonderful antiques, vintage, retro, collectibles, aromatherapy, monogramming, Shabby Chic paint line, and new merchandise as well. With over 50 dealers involved, the displays are incredible and constantly changing. It’s like shopping in a different store every time you visit. There is something for everyone — that is our motto.

Has Coweta County been a good fit for your business?

Coweta County has been a great fit for my business. It offers several shops similar to mine. This has helped us form a “loop” for antique enthusiasts to visit when they are in Coweta County. I have had the opportunity to meet and even work with many Coweta residents. They all have shown me the perfect Southern Charm and certainly have spread the word about us. Whole families come here to shop together!

If you weren't doing this, what would be your dream job?

I so admire the dealers that can take an old weathered or damaged piece and turn it into something beautiful. If I weren’t doing this, my dream job would be refinishing pieces into incredible treasures that put a twinkle in the collector’s eye.
