We had the good fortune of connecting with Vicki Adams and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Vicki, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
At Jacqueline Adams Antiques, we curate, collect and sell unique European antiques, but our approach to business has evolved with the times. As any successful modern-day business will tell you, it is crucial to have a solid online presence for today’s shoppers. Our website is frequently updated with new arrivals, and we share our finds with our followers on social media. We are also ever-watchful of current retail trends. For example, the world is once again loving the aesthetic of blue and white china, dishware, and ceramics. As a result, we have made sure to highlight our vast and diverse collection of these items on our social platforms. When it comes to trends, there are currently none larger or more important than the green movement. Everyone loves quality vintage items, and the durability and high-quality craftsmanship that comes with antiques make these items the epitome of recycling. And, for today’s busy, on-demand shopper, it helps that all of our antiques are available right now! There is no need to wait on an order or have anything custom-made. The biggest aspect of our success, however, is the fact that all of our antique finds are unique and one-of-a-kind. We hand-select items to showcase in our storeroom and sell to our customers that have character and presence to them. We know they will look beautiful in your home!
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We began selling our unique antique finds close to forty years ago, and we have now expanded to our 16,000 square foot showroom. Our one-of-a-kind items are immediately available to interested buyers, and the shear breadth of inventory means there is something for everyone. Our team at Jacqueline Adams Antiques brings a lot of hard work and attention to detail to every antique piece we acquire. We do well as a team, because each member brings a different, complementary skill set. We take our time with each client who walks through our doors, paying attention to the smallest details of their needs and tastes, to help them find the perfect antique pieces for their space. Our family-owned business is now being run by the second generation, and we find that we often work with families from generation to generation!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
In every culture, visits with friends and family often revolve around food. This is not an exception for us! Some of our favorite places to bring visiting loved ones are: Le Bilboquet, St. Cecilia, Felini’s Pizza, Das BBQ, Buckhead Diner, Fish Market, The Battery, and Vortex Burgers… to name a few! Once fed and happy, we love showing off our beautiful city. Some of our favorite attractions to share with visitors include Atlanta Zoo, the Aquarium, World of Coca Cola, The Battery, SkyWheel, Braves/United Game, a show at the Fox, and the holiday lights at the Botanical Gardens. When it comes to shopping, walking and people-watching, we love taking visitors to Ponce City Market, Avalon, Shops of Buckhead, Beltline, and Chastain Park.
