Jenkins Antiques is owned and operated by Becky Jenkins, now located in Williamston, NC and previously in Washington, NC. The business started in 1972 for supplemental income and enjoyment of preserving old interesting collectibles. Becky and her husband Ronnie collected all things Victorian. Their collection grew and expanded into different areas.
Our new location is a pre-Civil War farmhouse with cement additions on the side. It occupies 10,000 square feet. The farmhouse was built in 1857, having entire trees as joists, mortise and pegged walls, plaster walls and interesting chimneys. Doors are mortise and pegged as well.
The business now is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9am to 5pm. Sales are taken through many channels such as; walk-in traffic, eBay as jenkinsnc, Craigslist, our website at www.jenkinsantiques.com and repeat customers. A “Want List” is maintained.
Our inventory includes many high end reproductions of Colonial Williamsburg, including Henkel Harris, Craftique, Kittinger, Baker, Hickory Chair, etc. Also primitives, country collectibles, lamps and lamp parts and even glassware. Jenkins Antiques is a Henkel Harris representative.
