About Pine Canyon Antiques
Pine Canyon Antiques is a husband-wife business located in northern Indiana. Although we have dabbled in antiques since 1977, the business received its official name from our residence purchased in 2010 at Pine Canyon Lake.
Having been science teachers for over 35 years, we are now taking advantage of retirement. We occupy Booth #57 at Markle Exit 286 Antique Mall in Markle, IN, Then and Now Antiques in Angola, IN, Vintage Treasures Antique Mall in Ft. Wayne, IN, and Homestead Antique Mall in Angola, IN. We also exhibit at 10 primitive antique shows annually. Most
recently we have become the promoters of A Simpler Thyme Antiques and Primitives Show held at the Delaware County Fairgrounds in Muncie, Indiana in May and October each year.
In addition, Louise is a contributing writer for Country Rustic magazine, submitting features and DIYs. Louise grew up with a background in antiques as her mother, Betty Dobler, dealt in primitives for over 40 years - before they became popular. Growing up, stoneware, pewter, baskets, tin ware, early treen, and painted furniture surrounded her. After meeting Steve in the Indiana University Paleontology lab 45 years ago, he has become an admirer of early things, plus a supporter and driver.
"We always search for the unusual pieces of furniture, one-of-a-kind items, woodenware of any type, stoneware, and early lighting, accompanied by appropriate smalls and make-do's."
