Our Talented Professionals

At Antique Appliances, our talented and dedicated craftsmen are our chief asset. It is through teamwork, skill and dedication that we are able to recreate the beautiful antique refrigerators and stoves shown on this website. We take pride in introducing the good folks that have restored our current line of stock and who will turn your old appliances into a truly unique and functional conversation piece.

John Jowers was born and raised in Clayton, graduated Auburn University with degree in business management and marketing. John grew up in the family business established by his father in 1948, and has been in the business full time since 1980. He is a certified AHAM-NARDA refrigerator repair specialist. John has an extensive history in appliance marketing, repair and restoration. John likes to run the shop, but enjoys hitting the road as well. If your antique appliance is delivered by our truck, John will be driving it!

Cathy Jowers, John's wife, was born in Ames, Iowa and raised in Huntsville, Alabama. She graduated from Auburn University with degree in Art Education. Cathy teaches art in local schools and is artistic advisor for AntiqueAppliances.Com and lends her talents for those special projects.

 

Austin Jowers, John & Cathy's son was born and raised in Clayton.  Austin recently graduated from Clemson University with a degree in marketing.  Bring the third generation into the business is exciting.  Austin grew up working here in the summers and during holidays and knows the business up one side and down the other.  He handles all internet marketing, inside sales for our antique appliances as well as replacment parts.  Austin and his new bride, Leslie, live in nearby Mt. Airy, Ga, and their spare time is taken up by their dogs Jak-Jak and Duke.

 

Joey Penland - Joey was born and raised right here in Rabun County. Joey is a talented young man with extensive experience in metal fabrication. If it’s broken or missing we just tell Joey to make a new one! Joey also designs and installs our refrigeration systems and restores many of our gas stoves.   He's a "jack of all trades". Joey is a welcome addition to our restoration team. He spends his off time restoring old cars and rumaging through junk yards to see what treasures he can find.  He likes heavy metal music.

 

Larry Saucier - Our original Frenchman is back! After some time away, we're happy to have Larry in the shop with us again. His specialty is gas stoves and he knows them inside and out. Be it a Roper, Magic Chef, or rare brand there probably isn't a stove he can't tackle. His favorite has always been the Chambers, and when he's not restoring them you'll find him working on his hotrod. Larry is originally from France and has three children. An interesting fact about this devilishly handsome fellow: the flavor of the his music will vary depending on the kind of stove he's restoring.
