New Antiques Venture Comes to Central Street

Former Hartzell Street resident Lora Swanson returns to the neighborhood with her business partner in a new Central Street antiques venture. Lora and her partner, Bogus Ostrowski, own Swantiques and Square Nails & Dovetails, and they will join Geof Hiltwein in a co-op endeavor to be known as East of the Tracks, 1812 Central Street, the current location of Hiltie's. Geof will continue his repair and refinishing in the rear workshop, while Lora and Bogus will sell antiques (mostly furniture and lighting) in the front of the store.

A Grand Opening Reception is scheduled for Friday, January 30, 5-9 p.m., and the public is cordially invited.
