Bernie Bagley

 

While Bernie Bagley was originally raised in Boston, Massachusetts, it wasn’t until he moved to Texas in the 1980’s that his love of antiques truly flourished. He has been collecting antiques for more than 25 years. In Weatherford, Texas, he started and ran his own successful antique store called “Age Before Beauty”.

 

Bernie is the consummate “picker”, often on the road early in the day to uncover those one-of-a-kind finds at estate sales, yard sales as well as area antique stores. He is usually the person that finds that totally unique item. Bernie is also a regular attendee at area auctions where he has located and purchased great pieces for his customers, as well as his antique business.

 

He also has a gift for turning the ordinary into the extraordinary when it comes to old furniture and finds. He repairs and refurbishes old furniture, restoring it to its former grandeur. He loves to collect old chocolate molds, unique paper weights, unusual folk art signs, primitive furniture and unusual items he has been known to completely transform into another object!

 

Bernie has participated in some of the most renowned antique shows in the country including Round Top, Brimfield, Virginia Highlands Festival, Waco, Odessa, Longview, Shreveport, Tyler, Harlingen and Scott’s in Atlanta.
