Exhibitor Spotlight - Caroline Faison Antiques - A Family Affair


Caroline Faison opened her shop, Caroline Faison Antiques forty eight years ago, in the location where it remains today. As her life is colorful and expansive, so is her shop. Regarded as one of the most original and adventurous collectors and dealers, Caroline's reputation is known world-wide. Her unique personality, sense of style and humor are reflected in the company she loves as much today as she did forty eight years ago.

Ben Cochrane, Caroline’s grandson moved to Greensboro three years ago from Richmond, Va to help grow the family business. As he grew up in and around antiques his entire life he was taught an appreciation for all things old by his mother, Kim Faison, also an antiques dealer. With a goal of reaching younger collectors through the internet and antiques shows around the country, Ben is dedicated to carrying on the family tradition of bringing quality antiques and decorations to the next generations.

Caroline and Ben travel together all over Europe as well as the US in search of unique pieces for the home. You can find them at The Antique & Design Center on Ground level of Historic Market Square in space MS G-42b ADC and the rest of the year at their shop at 18 Battleground Ct, Greensboro NC.

Exhibitor Spotlight - Counter Culture

Counter Culture - An Obsession with The Remarkable

“I think I have an addictive personality.” Says Chad Kilgore of Counter Culture, “(That's what my mom tells me anyway).” Anything he’s dedicated himself to almost seems to cross into obsession. It was football for 21 years of his life. At 26 that chapter came to a close and he knew he needed another outlet for his energy but had no idea what it was going to be.

He got started dealing in antiques thanks to his parents who had collected, bought and sold as long as he could remember. He grew up around quality objects and subconsciously learned what makes something worth collecting. His first antique show was in the Spring of 2015 in Round Top, TX with a hodgepodge of things he liked. It went fairly well for little to no experience other than what his parents had taught him.


At first he thought he could have a little fun and make a little money while he figured out what he really wanted to do with his life. As it turns out what he really wanted to do is be creative for a living and answer to no-one but himself.  He really enjoys making things that people love, whether it's an overall aesthetic, object, or art piece. This has now turned itself into an obsession all its own.

He and his fiancé recently welcomed a baby girl to the family who has also become an object of his obsessive attention. She'll no doubt enjoy that in her teenage years.

Creating a better life for his little family and creating things that are remarkable (worthy of someone making a remark about) are what keeps him pushing higher every day. Because it's a noisy world and average is unremarkable. 

Counter Culture can be found at The Antique & Design Center of Ground level of Historic Market Square in space MS G-38 ADC

Exhibitor Spotlight: Punch Jones

Punch Jones is really a love story, and all love stories begin with a journey. It’s about coming to Florida on a whim, and deciding to take a risk. It’s about falling in love with a building, and letting it lead you on an incredible journey. The building was a Gulf gas station, built on Anastasia Island in 1935, at the foot of the Bridge of Lions. 
When Heidi Hall-Jones found the building in 1992 it had fallen into considerable disrepair, and no sane person would have taken it on. It was love at first sight, and what followed over the next 18 months was a total transformation. What she didn’t appreciate at the time was that she was being transformed as well. 
The building was a classroom as she honed her eye and design skills, providing a steady backdrop as her tastes and knowledge of antiques and vintage furniture evolved. Amazingly, twenty five years later, the building has remained somehow perfectly fresh and in style even as her tastes and preferences continue to evolve. 

 When someone asks her what her style is, she says, “it’s Punch style.” 
It’s elegant and casual, streamlined and curvaceous, the antique paired with the modern. She likes beautiful things with a provenance and a pedigree equally with the funky, unusual, and unexpected. Punch Style is about creating a space that is equal parts sanctuary and laboratory, playful and beautiful, an unmistakable vibe. 

Some people would call that a love story. 

You can once again find Punch Jones at The Antique & Design Center on the Ground level of Historic Market Square, space MS-G 8 ADC.
