Business History Month: Celebration Antiques

DSC_0184The Colbys feel they “came home” to Hopkins County when they moved to the area and became business people in downtown Sulphur Springs . Their store “Celebration Antiques” occupies historic space at 210 Connally Street, having been home to Haggar’s Dry Goods store in the 1920’s and Roberts Jewelers and Taking Care of Business in more recent years. Adam and Lara’s handiwork on the lofty, weathered surroundings makes a perfect showcase for antiques and the heritage of furniture craftsmanship. The Colby’s have hundreds of “finds” for you to discover, from fine antiques to primitives, collectibles and pieces that need a little TLC to re-purpose or refinish in your favorite style.


Lara has gathered a wide array of furniture dating from  the early to mid-20th century…bureaus, buffets, secretarys, curios and armoires where beauty meets function…rockers, graceful tables and formal dining sets, all from a more genteel era. Beautifully framed artwork and vintage photographs can lend your family “instant heritage”. At Celebration Antiques, the affordability of these treasures is a pleasant surprise! Part of the shopping experience is the creak of the wood floor while a clock strikes the hour. Take your time and browse the upper and lower levels of the spacious store.


More will be added in time, including homemade soaps, beeswax furniture care products and greeting cards.  Visit the store often and see what’s new, and old, inside the doors of Celebration Antiques! Located across from historic City National Bank in the heart of the city’s celebration district. Hours of operation are Monday through Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-4pm, and Sunday 11am-3pm.
