Farmers would hold cattle sales some afternoons near campus, and in addition to the livestock, they’d sell other goods from the back of their trucks. Wells recalled recently buying a piece of pottery at one of those sales that she says is the prize of her varied home collection. That was the beginning of her more than 40-year career buying and selling antiques.
Wells is well known for her antique hardware for furniture and houses. She even has what she calls a men’s shop inside the store where she sells tools. Wells’ habit of collecting things pretty much demanded she open a business. She had bought many antiques attending sometimes as many as four auctions a day, with two daughters who were 18 months apart on her hips. Her store fit right in with the other antique and used furniture shops that were open then. She said some still come to visit her even if they don’t need anything.
Then there are those she calls the “pickers,” people who bring items for her to sell that they’ve picked up at auctions. Wells said she would not have wanted to be anywhere other than south of the railroad tracks, an area that has seen much redevelopment in recent years. Wells explained that business has been slower over the last four years because there are fewer people walking the downtown streets. She said she’s supplied him with some architectural pieces for his buildings, calling him a good customer and friend. She’s been there for so long she can point people to the places to go to get what they need. Gerber, who grew up in a home built in the early 1900s, said it’s nostalgic to shop in the store. She said she spends at least an hour there when she visits, which is usually about once a month.
I mean, we’ve always been a family downtown. To make an appointment to shop at the warehouse, call the store at (336) 378-8877. Wells, now 75, is ready to retire from the business and get to work on her own personal collections at home. Wells is also well known for her knowledge of the styles and wood used in antique furniture. Many people have come to her shop and filled their homes with well-loved items. Wells says she believes everyone should collect something.
I want people to collect something that makes them happy and that will mean something to them in the future,” she said. She will take customers to her warehouse by appointment. Do you have a sentimental piece that you need repaired, restored, or protected?

Everything in the store was nice and for a reasonable price. Prices are right and the selection is truly one of a kind.
I like this cause and donating her over the other big chain thrift stores. Clothing is well-organized for a thrift store. Housewares vary from visit to visit, not good for furniture. It had a variety of items: everything from furniture to soaps to dog pillows is here. They have some neat clothes but plus sizes are lacking. It is consistently closed during posted hours.
I guess the owner doesn’t feel the need to show up.
