Stout's Great Stuff
What Moves Us: The antiques business moves us the way music makes us want to dance. They both have been a significant part of our lives since we were married 44 years ago. As we get older, we find that our passion for antiques as well as our love of music that touches the spirit and makes us want to get up and dance are two very strong factors that keep us strong and always moving!

The fantastic cycle of our antique's business: the shopping, making a find, getting it ready for sell and then experiencing the joy that comes from someone loving it as much as we do is so moving on many levels and it fuels our passion for this business.  Exhibiting at the Antique and Design Center show has been a wonderful experience. We have been deeply moved by everything related to the show from the family of dealers, the support and guidance provided by Karen, Amanda, Chandra and the team, and all of the wonderful people visiting the show that we've met. We never want that feeling of being inspired and moved by passion to end. We hope that you can come by and visit us, and perhaps you'll be moved, too! George & Kitty

About: George and Kitty, owners of Stout's Great Stuff, are as well known for their fun, humorous, innovative and edgy booth designs as they are for being Shag Dance champions traveling the country showing off their choreographed dance moves. Their love of antiques and dance intersect in a melodious setting in which George creatively pairs up Industrial, Art Deco, and Mid-Century pieces with original art and sculpture, always eliciting a double-take by those walking by his booth. Captivating, original, and still keeping it fresh after 35 years in the business; Stout's Great Stuff is definitely the place to visit when you're seeking something out of the ordinary or the unexpected.

Acanthus Studios Inc

What Moves Us: Is our enduring love of the outdoors. We both grew up on St. Simons Island, Georgia and spent our childhood exploring paradise. As children, we weren't allowed to sit inside and vegetate in front of the television set. We both spent countless hours trekking through the woods, playing on the beach and in the water. We feel that our business, Acanthus Studios, is a culmination of our lifelong love affair with the outdoors. We aren't your typical, run of the mill antiques store. We are greatly inspired by nature and take beautiful antique and vintage furniture and accessories for your home and give them a twist with surprising finds from nature. We draw inspiration from the savannas of Africa, to the oceans of the world or even your own backyard. - Jess & Gayle

About: Acanthus Studios offers a very diverse selection of hand-picked, attention-getting antique and vintage pieces sourced from exotic destinations the world over, all combined with touches of nature inspired elements. Their natural world products run the gamut from shells and coral to horn sconces and zebra skin rugs. They also design custom lamps made from quartz crystals, amethyst and petrified wood.
