Susan Horne Antiques was born out of friendship and a love of antiques.
“For many years, my girlfriends and I traveled to Round Top in the spring and fall. As my knowledge and my passion for antiques grew, I realized my deep desire to be in the antiques business. I started with a small booth at Round Top in 2013. I sold out of practically everything I brought to my first show and soon thereafter, found myself combing the countryside in France, England and Belgium to find the best furniture, accessories and collectibles for my clients,” Susan says.
“I continue to travel to Europe several times a year to assemble an exceptional collection of antiques and one-of-a- kind treasures.”
Susan's gorgeous showroom at Market Hill is where she brings new life to these treasures. She mixes them with unique new pieces and creates a fresh new modern look for which she is known.
“The experience Paul Michael has created for us is amazing in so many ways,” Susan says. In the past, Susan would only be able to take some of the pieces from her collection to Round Top because setting up a tent outside meant being exposed to the elements. Now, all of it comes to Market Hill.
“Our containers arrive right to our space and Market Hill provides help with the unloading, the installation of lighting. and the placement of heavy items,” she says.
More than the amenities, she talks about the people.
“The relationships we build and the business we generate at Market Hill makes it worthwhile. The friendship and support we receive means a great deal to us.”
“Though my locations and inventories have grown, my original motivations remain the same,” she says. “Sharing my passion for antiques with friends, new and old, is my greatest privilege.”
“One of the great joys I have in this business is traveling with my daughter, Meghan, and connecting with all the wonderful friends we have made all over the world. We not only learn about the antiques we buy, but we also learn about our friends and the history of their countries. We return with beautiful pieces for our clients and with special memories of time shared with friends that we will have forever— that brings me joy!"
