Town not the same without Antiques in Milton

January 25, 2014

Antiques in Milton on Union Street in the town center is gone now - and that, in my opinion, is a loss for the town of Milton. More than just a business, it was a gathering place for many - tourists and townspeople alike. A source of unique merchandise, it also served as a friendly stop where one could get directions to and helpful information about different businesses in the area (even competing antique shops).

For those of us who re-established roots here in Milton, the shop was a reliable guide to neighborhood organizations that needed volunteers, as well as to the rich history of Milton and its people.

Antiques in Milton was owned and managed by Kathryn Greig in partnership with her son Matt. For eight years the shop was open seven days a week, with the exception of Thanksgiving and Christmas and a few Tuesdays in the off season. During that time Kathryn wore many hats, shopkeeper, Milton garden club member, local event organizer, to name just a few. She has a long history of committed involvement in most everything that helps the town she loves so much.

I cannot do anything to change the situation Kathryn is in. There are many of us who would, were that possible. The one thing I can and will do, and the primary reason for writing this, is to simply say “Thank You, Kathryn.” Thank you for your friendship and thank you for your loyalty and service to Milton, the town we both love and call home.
