WHAT’S IN A NAME ~ CHRISARAS.COM
The website name is a combination of my mother’s name Chris, and grandmother’s name Sara.
My grandmother Sara had an antique store at the old farm in Bishopville, South Carolina. She was the one that started my obsession with all things old and unique. She taught me about the local area and how antiques was a part of that history.
The Bishopville farm plantation had been in our family since the 1800's. When I was young I would go to the old plantation site and dig up all kinds of things of history. I loved it.
When I got older my mother reminded me how much I loved the hunt for history. I started buying and selling antiques, and my mother would teach me what was good or bad. Sadly she passed away shortly after I started my business.
A few years ago I found The Barn, and I was able to buy it with the help from a good friend. I know my mother Chris was looking down on me smiling, surely she must have had something to do with it!
*If you remember this barn and have some more info or pictures, please drop me a line!
I would love to know more about it.
