Red Rocker Antiques of Lowell has been open
since mid-May, Osbsorne said. The shop offers vintage, shabby chic and unusual pieces in a house built in the 1920s. The space used to be a dentist’s office, Osborne said. It’s at 205 W. First St., just a few doors down from City Hall.
Osborne has always been crafty. She used to
sell her goods at shows down at Myrtle Beach, S.C. She’d always wanted to have shop to showcase unique finds, she said.
This isn’t one of those stuffed antiques places, Osborne tells me. Each room has burlap curtains decorated in different ways, like an animal print across the top of a burlap valance or the burlap twisted into a swag.
Osborne has about eight vendors that bring
in their wares. She also has a quaint room that’s available to rent for baby showers, bridge clubs or other small gatherings.
Osborne wants to offer some “make it and
take it” classes teaching crafts. She’s also planning to host a wine walk once a month where customers can peruse and sip.
