TIM AND SUZANNE FOSTER’s historic store, with its distinctive German clock hanging out front, was built in 1872, and taken over by the couple in 1982. With such a well-preserved premises, it was natural that the interior design should follow the lead of the outside, with wooden fittings and ceiling, and large windows at the front of the store to brighten up the space and let customers peer in at the range of designer jewelry, and salespeople look out at the bustle of village life as it passes by. The original building had one large structural beam running the length of the store. To add to the look, additional faux beams were added.

Our panel loved the warmth of the building enhanced by the wood and flowers within. “Lots of old-fashioned charm,” says Karen Karch, with Anne Sowden adding, “I love the warm woods and warm colored fabrics. I could snuggle up here for the winter.” Bob too liked the “strong interior presentation,” as Gwen Carrington praised T. Foster & Co.’s “open-door attitude.”

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
