Local businessman Dan “the Man” Hamiter loves to make old things look like new. That’s one reason he’s undertaking restoration projects in downtown areas of Sulphur Springs.
His current Antique and Flea Market location is open in the restored location at 800 Jefferson Street. Also situated along the historic “Bankhead Highway” is a two story building at 123 Jefferson Street which Dan plans to make a “Pampering Studio”.
Another of his restoration projects is the old Hargrave Welding and Fabrication setting in the 600 block of Mulberry Street. It may eventually become a restaurant.
There’s also the “Celebration Antiques” site at 210 Connally Street which will offer fine antiques, collectibles, fun “gypsy” decor and more.
Dan’s daughter Lara Colby will be owner and operator of the new family business set to open this Fall in the downtown district. Dan Hamiter embraces a personal interest in preserving the rich heritage of our community. Following a long career with the Dallas Morning News, “retirement” brought hard-working Dan and Donna Hamiter back to his hometown of Sulphur Springs. His handshake and wide smile for everyone are his trademarks.
