Elephant’s Antics: Interview

Sisters, Sharon Conwrick and Jill Lockwood

Our business is Elephants Antics, we are sisters who work together to sell antiques, collectibles, repurposed and decorative items. We love antiques, and have been collecting them for many years. We started doing shows because we needed an outlet for our “addiction.” When Artique first opened in September of 2009, we were one of the original vendors.

When we buy, we try to look for items people can buy relatively inexpensively for decorating, collecting, repurposing, etc. Our goal is to keep prices reasonable for our customers. We want to be a resource to help people find vintage items at a fair price. We also sell framed antique postcards.

Sharon is a retired school teacher, living in South Glens Falls. She is very active in LARAC (Lower Adirondack Region Arts Council) and volunteers with several other organizations. Jill lives in Ballston Spa and works in Albany as an insurance underwriter. She likes to paint and create in her spare time.

“We do several antique sales a year and sell our framed postcards at the Brookside Museum during the holiday season and at craft shows. We enjoy being apart of Artique because of the variety of vendors. The creativity and energy of Angela and Elizabeth. And the positive attitude that is created and enforced.”
