Owen Norvell joins Laurinda’s Holly Hill and Nancy Huff as a new dealer to this year’s show.
Norvell, a Salisbury native who lives in Cary, began selling antiques about two years ago.
“They contacted us from the antiques show and said there was a spot available,” Norvell says. “Since we are moving back to Salisbury, we thought it would give us some good exposure.”
Norvell will be bringing turn-of-the-century American furniture ó tables, chests of drawers and small items such as copper pieces and wooden boxes. He is keeping the current economic situation in mind.
“We’re trying to go more with usable pieces as opposed to high-end pieces,” he says.
