My oldest friends in the antiques business are probably Randy and Jane Tanski, who own the "world famous" Sandy Antiques Mall. We met doing Jim Reese's antiques shows at the Salt Palace back in the late 1980's, and both opened antique shops in the Sandy area at about the same time. The Tanski's, being more experienced and sure footed opened an antiques mall on State Street, and I opened a little hole in the wall up on 9th East, that would have fit in their bathroom.
That was about 30 years ago, and the Sandy Antiques Mall has grown and improved most every year since then. I can't really say that about Randy and I, although our wives seem remarkably unchanged over the years, we seem to be getting a little long in the tooth. And, since these days, you are more likely to find Randy on the golf course than in the shop, thier decision to retire isn't exactly a shock.
Anyway, there is a mountain of antiques and collectibles to be sold before Randy starts rocking on the porch. Along with the shop inventory and fixtures, there is a lot of things coming out that I've never seen before. So get yourself down to the Sandy Antiques Mall and say goodbye to Randy and Jane, and pick up a treasure or two at a bargain price.
