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.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
