Alan, a native New Englander and a second-generation antiques dealer, moved to Sarasota in 1992 and brought a New England style of business to the antiques community of Sarasota.
For 20 years he has been a leading dealer of 18th to 20th century American and European antiques, supplying shops and auction houses along the eastern seaboard. He is also a high profile veteran of the monthly Don Scott Antiques Show in Atlanta. It was this show that inspired him to open the gallery, as a one stop shop with a collaboration of specialty dealers with an antique for every lifestyle.
Alan's background as a "wholesale to the trade" merchant has become the personality of the lovely gallery: friendly and informal, with antiques being the common language!
