A new antiques collective called Clocktower Antiques is now open on the main floor of the Walker's Point Antique Center, 1134 S. 1st St.
The collective is comprised of seven seasoned sellers, including Annette French who owned Dragonfly on Brady Street for 16 years. The eclectic merchandise includes vintage, quality furniture, housewares, jewelry, books, clothing and decorative items.
"It came together so beautifully," says French. "It's a really pretty store."
Due to the coronavirus, Clocktower Antiques opened quietly over the weekend and adheres to strict health and safety practices.
"Down the road we are looking forward to being active in the community and hosting gallery night events, parking lot pop-ups and lots of fun stuff," says French.
Clocktower Antiques will be open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Follow the shop on Facebook here.
Molly Snyder grew up on Milwaukee's East Side and today, she lives in the Walker's Point neighborhood with her partner and two sons.
As a full time senior writer, editorial manager and self-described experience junkie, Molly has written thousands of articles about Milwaukee (and a few about New Orleans, Detroit, Indianapolis, Boston and various vacation spots in Wisconsin) that range in subject from where to get the best cup of coffee to an in-depth profile on the survivors of the iconic Norman apartment building that burned down in the '90s.
She also once got a colonic just to report on it, but that's enough on that.
Always told she had a "radio voice," Molly found herself as a regular contributor on FM102, 97WMYX and 1130WISN with her childhood radio favorite, Gene Mueller.
Molly's poetry, essays and articles appeared in many publications including USA Today, The Writer, The Sun Magazine and more. She has a collection of poetry, "Topless," and is slowly writing a memoir.
In 2009, Molly won a Milwaukee Press Club Award. She served as the Narrator / writer-in-residence at the Pfister Hotel from 2013-2014. She is also a story slam-winning storyteller who has performed with The Moth, Ex Fabula and Risk!
When she's not writing, interviewing or mom-ing, Molly teaches tarot card classes, gardens, sits in bars drinking Miller products and dreams of being in a punk band again.
