Developing a style and structuring your life around that style is one of the pleasures of ownership, be it a business or a home. Summerhill has always been in a state of evolution. Beginning as a small antique shop with a decidedly French flair to what it is today, our specialties have expanded with our success, drawing courage and focus as our customer base has grown. Today we are confident in our selections and have a wonderful stable of artisans who help us provide a vast array of quality antiques in Orange. We truly love what we do.
Antiques in Orange have been a constant since the 60s. In 1993, a dear friend and I opened our little space in a new antique mall on north Glassell. We sold small but pretty items and found we had a knack for buying well, refurbishing on a small scale and making enough in sales to keep us going for a year or so. Then a small shop became available on south Glassell. We opened there in early 1995, my friend left California two years later and I ran Summerhill for another 7 years.
When the larger shop at 110 S. Glassell became available, I took a long lease and have been operating here ever since. Antiques have always been my passion. The ability to buy, refurbish, and sell these treasures has given me years of great enjoyment.
