Looking for the unique and unusual gift? Something special for that special someone? Bruce Chaney's Antique Shop is in its 25th year very unique from others in the area as it is a true antique shop; no collectibles, no vintage, but true Period furniture (we're talking Chippendale, Hepplewhite, etc.), Victorian pieces (furniture and dining) and Country furniture (like 1830's Windsor chairs.) One of a kind treasured items that can't be purchased in a box store.
Bruce has been selling antiques since 1989 but has been collecting them since the 1950's when visiting relatives took him to an estate sale and he was hooked. "A true antique," explains Chaney, "is at least 100 years old, and especially includes items made before the Industrial Revolution in the 1830's. After then there were more goods produced by machinery; before then items were handcrafted or made in smaller numbers." Chaney does go on to explain that he makes an exception to the 100 year rule for Art Nouveau and Art Deco items of the early 1900's to 1930's because of their beautiful lines and style.
Currently, Chaney has a large selection of cut glass pieces. Dating back to the Victorian times, craftsmen cut designs into glass of many forms and patterns creating "beautiful art pieces that are useful," says Chaney. Along with the many pieces of silver that he carries, "these works of art are useful, not something to be put on the shelf and looked at." The cut glass includes vases, bowls, dishes and pitchers; his silver collection has hard to find tea pots, sugars and creamers, trays, cutlery and more. These silver pieces according to Chaney are elegant and long lasting and make caring, timeless gifts.
Because of the nature of the shop, the inventory is constantly evolving. Items he currently has in the shop are oil paintings, salt glazed crocks and butter churn with cobalt blue decoration, a small mustard painted immigrant chest, a magnificent 50 piece set of Steuben glass, bronze figures from the late 1800's on black marble plinths and furniture from different eras displaying it all.

In the middle of the main block of downtown Roanoke is Katharos Art & Gift shop. Owners Kathy and Chris Bailey have worked very hard to fix up and improve the building and it is now an inviting shop full of charm.
Filled with different types of artwork from more than 15 different artists, Kathy says she likes to be able to showcase and help display work, especially from artists that haven’t shown before. We showcase work from local talent and probably 95% of what is in the shop is local Northeast Indiana. We also like to find unique and unusual items that I haven’t seen around here and have added some artists from a little further away with hand crafted pieces including metal and ceramic clocks and wire sculptures. There are oil, acrylic, watercolor, and photography works to hang on walls; there is jewelry and pottery for sale to use; and there are also textiles with quilts, scarves, pillows and aprons; items that are knit, sewn, and pieced. Nicely displayed on antique pieces of furniture, the shop has a warm and comfortable feel.
Kathy makes fused glass pieces, a talent she developed from an interest in creating jewelry from lamp work beads. With the purchase of a kiln, she expanded to art fairs and then galleries in Indiana, Chicago, Michigan and Ohio. Wanting to display her work herself and not have to travel to shows, led Kathy to locate both personally and professionally here in Roanoke. “We love being here in Roanoke and enjoy being part of a smaller community,” she says. In addition to her jewelry, she makes larger items such as art glass pieces for interior design and functional pieces like plates, platters and candle holders.
The shop is divided into two sections with the front being the area to display the works of art and the open back half reserved for classes. Classes include tips on hanging and arranging artwork, making a fused glass pendant and creating a Christmas bracelet with charms and basic wirework, bead frames and caps. Kathy books small groups with private classes whether a group of Girl Scouts working on their jewelry badge or a group with an interest in learning to make something new. The minimum number to book a class is 5 and the space can handle up to 10-15 depending on the activity and the age of the participants.
