Take Down That Wall! Marietta Renovation

If you've been to the Marietta store, you know that our dealers that sell fine art, custom pallet art, wall decor and photography currently occupy space on a gallery wall in the center of the Marietta store, between Meeting and Queen Streets.

We've started 2017 off with a bang as staff and volunteers tore down the gallery wall on Sunday, January 29th, making way for bigger shop spaces down the center of the store, wider aisles and more visibility!

Art and home decor dealers have relocated to a newly designed "Art Gallery" on East Bay Street.

The new, expanded street will be called Meeting on Queen Street. Stay tuned for more photos of the expanded street, and to watch the video click here! We are looking forward to a better and brighter Queen of Hearts Marietta!

Dealer Aaron Kaplan (Dealer Code LKNAK) of Friendly Clock Shop

Each month we feature one of our dealer-merchants from each of our three stores that offers unique, one-of-a-kind antiques and merchandise for your home and garden. We have a lot of creative, savvy and talented dealers and we thought you would enjoy getting to know them!

Aaron Kaplan (Dealer Code LKNAK) of Friendly Clock Shop specializes in clock sales and restoration. He recently moved to a larger space on Queen Street in our Alpharetta store where he and his wife, Lillian, have been dealer-merchants for one and a half years. Aaron sells clocks, figurines, Doulton, Toby mugs and miscellaneous merchandise in his booth. He loves being a part of the Queen family because of the great atmosphere and helpful staff. He particularly enjoys selling grandfather clocks, mantle clocks, and wall clocks, but really enjoys repairing them.

Aaron's favorite items in his own home, besides clocks, are figurines and lamps. He enjoys victorian, art nouveau, art deco and Asian trends. Aaron collects clocks, loves reading and especially enjoys family time with his wife, Lillian. He and Lillian grew up in New York City and have four children and eight grandchildren. Aaron previously worked for North American Aviation, Rockwell International, and Boeing Aircraft Company and is now retired. Be sure to stop by the Alpharetta Queen and say hi to Aaron - you can usually find him at the Queen in his booth doing minor repairs.
