Elaine Van Horn (front, right) cut the ribbon on her new business Elaine's Emporium, 614 N. Ackerman, which features eclectic antiques and specializing in costume jewelry. Van Horn has been in the antique and estate sale business for about 30 years, moving here in 2001 after living in Houston all her life.
Her shop also carries unique pieces of furniture, table and floor lamps, art, a huge button collection, vintage china, linens and vintage fabric and ribbons. Van Horn is a sought-after voice from appraisers and movie makers on vintage jewelry.
Joining Van Horn last Thursday to mark her grand opening were (from left) Toby Johnson, Joyce Dalley, Leslie Adams, Joyce Ford, Denice Doss, June Key, Julia Cardona, Cindy Jerman, Pat Watson and Carolyn Boyd.
