in the News!
We seemed to have found a niche in the appliance
market and went looking for other businesses that were restoring
these great old pieces. We didn't find many, but we did
find that market is very specialized and we are glad to be
a part of it.
These last two years have been a real treat. We
started our restoration business with just seven units on
display in the showroom of our GE Appliance dealership. Its
hard to believe that we can't even publish pages for all the
restorations we've completed or that our antiques have taken
over two-thirds of our showroom floor space. Wow! What
addition to restoring the antique and vintage appliances you
see on our web site, our craftsmanship has been recognized
by Retailing News. Our restored antique and vintage appliances
have been displayed in area art galleries, generating recognition
by publications like The
Atlanta Journal Constitution. AntiqueAppliances.com
is currently featured on OldHouseWeb.net.
business is also featured on the E-Zine Family
Business Strategies, and was also picked up by
in a three page reproduction of the FBS article. In February,
2003, Family Business Strategies contacted us again to advise
that the new publication of Dan Elash, Ph.D.'s, new book Doing
it Right: Realizing Your Company's Potential will
feature the success of AntiqueAppliances.Com as an example
in the learning / doing / teaching section they are creating. Read
the publisher's Press
Release here on our site. Needless to say,
we are pleased.
AntiqueAppliances.Com was a featured restorer
in Woman's Day Specials: Kitchens & Baths magazine. We
were mentioned there along with our top competitors in the
business. Needless to say, we are very graciously pleased
by this recognition. In addition to that, Monitor Top
Refrigerators were recently front page news in The Wall Street
Journal. AntiqueAppliances.com's own John Jowers was
interviewed for the article. Click
here for the full story.
Since the Wall Street Journal article, we
have been interviewed by USA
Weekend and USA
Today and in the House Proud section of the New
York Times. The
Old Appliance Club has featured our 1950 Tappan
Gas Range Cooktop (which we found new and still in its original
box) and the 1932 3-door Kelvinator.
Speaking of Kelvinators, we found a really
cute article about one in North Carolina that we apparently
interviewed for last year in the Shelby
addition to that, Southern Living Magazine recently interviewed
us in their August 2004 issue.
John was also interviewed on the syndicated
radio show Dolan's Financial Report, from WNY New York. It
was a really great experience. As the show was airing,
we were getting calls from all of the country saying they
were listening to us on the radio. For small town guys
in Clayton, Georgia, this was a big event.
Last but not least, we are currently being
interviewed by an AP writer who is doing an article on vintage
appliances. She said she found us "all over the
Net". We'll post that article as soon as we know
where its going to appear.
So, you see we have had quite some recognition
these last few years and we would be thrilled to hear from
you. We'd love to know what you think of our web site,
our services and, if you are one of our customers, how you
feel about your experience with AntiqueAppliances.com. Please
email us with any questions you may have. Check back
here regularly for more interesting developments.
