BEHIND THE SCENES: Manager Annette Doucher has been working in the family business for 28 years. Her father started it 35 years ago in the Ď70s when mainstream developers were renovating homes and trashing treasured fixtures. Today, the store supplies builders, contractors and the general public with high quality vintage pieces, carefully restored to meet today's standards. The recent move from a storefront in Westboro offers more workshop and retail space. Take your time when visiting; each turn offers something interesting.
