A LIFETIME OF LOVING ANTIQUES.
My father used to say,
"Treat a person right,
and they tell five people --
treat them wrong,
and they'll tell 50."
This is the principle on which I built my business. For over 35 years, I've grown Mike Deming Antiques into a well respected and thoughtful company.
My business is much more than a brick building filled with unique items; it's a place where stories are shared with the many close friends I've made along the way.
A place that honors a simpler more refined time.
Although I grew up in New Jersey, my first memory of an antique shop was on a family visit to Rochester in 1965.
My grandmother took me along one day "antiquing," as she called it.
We stopped in a great "old time" shop in Mendon. If I close my eyes now, I can still see it. It was there I bought my first antique, a deck of playing cards with the members of Queen Victoria's Court. I was hooked!
Throughout the years, my family and I have bought and sold thousands of treasures and made many friends, building relationships that endure to this day. I look forward to meeting with you, whether you're selling a work of fine art, or a deck of antique playing cards.
