Restoring the good old days: Owner of new antique store loves the ’40s and ’50s
OREGON – There’s a problem with using acidic cardboard to mount a hand-painted picture, restorer Don Atkinson says – the acid wins the fight.
Atkinson owns Flamingo Palace, which he opened a few months ago at 109 S. Third St. He sells antiques, collectibles, and 500 or more framed pictures in his 4,500 square feet.
The building, once Bob’s Shoe Store, sat vacant for 7 years before Atkinson bought it 4 years ago. He installed a tin ceiling, re-wired the building and made other renovations.
