DEC Connection Open House - 23 August, 2-4 PM

Sunday, August 23, 2015, Antiques And Collectibles Mall of New England hosted an Open House for DEC Connection Members featuring 20% off storewide (excluding coins and jewelry), with a discussion on things they buy and sell.  Members and their guests are welcome to bring in their toys from the 50s & 60s, American coins, and militaria for evaluation.  Keith is quite knowledgeable in toys and coins, and a military collectibles expert will be happy to look at military pins and patches from WWI, WWII, Korea & Vietnam.

 

 Michalene’s career at Digital started as a temp, programming access cards for Russ Rossini in the Security Department at MRO1.  She was hired permanently in 1984 to program access cards and print badges for all Digital contractors.  After 2 years or so she accepted a Secretarial position the Regional Facilities Group in MRO3, where she worked for Steve Sur and Carm Corrente, supporting a group of approximately 30 - Project Managers, Planners, Electrical, Mechanical and Design Engineers, contractors and support staff – typing the specifications for all the building designs and retrofits.
 

She attended training whenever possible, and completed more than 30 classes relating to word processing, presentations, marketing, accounting software and some entry level programming courses. Later she transferred to John Peachey’s  SPOC (Specifications on COMPUTER group) in Northboro, MA.   There she worked for Steve Marini as an Administrative Secretary for a short time and was later promoted to Project Specialist, setting up SPOC accounts for employees around the world.  She went on to become a Program Manager, coordinating the work of several programmers on various internal software development projects and providing training as the products rolled out.


After 10 years with Digital she left Digital and accepted a position as Director of Program Management with the Regional Employment Board, followed by Career Counselor at Bernard Haldane Associates, and Office Manager at a small MetLife Office.
 

After years of working for others, she developed an interest in antiques.  In 2002 she found the perfect location to open Antiques And Collectibles Mall of New England.   She purchased the 17,000 square foot historic Prescott Grain Mill building on New Hampshire’s Scenic Route 45 in June 2002.   She spent 3 months working on repairs and improvements with the help of many friends and family, and the doors opened on Labor Day weekend.
 

Today, Michalene and her partner, Keith Turmel, operate Antiques And Collectibles Mall of New England, their retail store in Greenville NH.  It is a clean, comfortable, friendly environment with a wide variety of items at reasonable prices.    They also have an on-line Ebay store under the username MYNOCK77 with 500 – 600 items for sale at any given time.


In addition, they provide Estate Sale and consultation services throughout southern NH.  They buy items outright, consign items and rent space to dealers in their retail store, drawing customers from all over New England and the country.
 

Inventory at Antiques And Collectibles Mall of New England includes art, coins, gold, silver, costume jewelry, furniture, kitchenware, hunting, fishing and military collectibles, glassware and pottery, boxes, early photographs, postcards, banks, toys, linens, vintage hardware and tools, knives, razors, books, clocks, andirons, doorstops, cast iron cookware, milk bottles and more.
 

After 13 years in the Antiques business, Michalene and Keith are thinking about their next adventure.
In the meantime, they welcome DEC Connection members to visit.  The store is open on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 10-5. 
 

From 2-4 pm. on Sunday, August 23rd the coffee will be on, and Antiques And Collectibles Mall of New England is offering DEC Connection Members 20% off storewide (excluding coins and jewelry).  Additionally, they will be hosting a discussion on things they buy and sell.  Members and their guests are welcome to bring in their toys from the 50s & 60s, American coins, and militaria for evaluation.  Keith is quite knowledgeable in toys and coins, and a military collectibles expert will be happy to look at military pins and patches from WWI, WWII, Korea & Vietnam.  
 

Perhaps we will recognize some old friends in the crowd.  Please join us!
