We have been captivated by American Folk Art, painted furniture and accessories for almost 40 years now. After having had shops in St. Louis, Missouri; Lititz, Pennsylvania; and now Wiscasset, Maine, we have experienced many phases of antique collecting and met an enormous variety of collectors from the Midwest to the East. We have done shows in Chicago, Nashville, New York City, New Hampshire, Maine, California, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Missouri, Texas, and yes, once in Alabama and once in Oklahoma. These have furnished us with tales to tell for all the books we never planned to write (but ought to!).
Through all these years we have strived to find first quality American antiques with integrity of form and surface. We hope that you will find that quality and originality are apparent in the design, caliber and unique spirit of our merchandise. Our aim is to make both you and The Garthoeffners happy with your selections.
