Finishing Touches Antiques located on Nudist Camp Road in Chester, recently opened its doors under the ownership of Terry and Sherri Adams, who have lived in Chester for eight years.
Terry is originally from Michigan and Sherri from Stowe, and after owning an antique shop in North Carolina for four years, they decided to come back to Vermont to open a new shop.
"We opened the shop a couple weeks ago and just had our grand opening," Terry said in a recent interview. "Our shop in North Carolina was doing well, but all of Sherri's family lives here in Vermont so we wanted to come home."
Walking in to Finishing Touches, one immediately notices a wide variety of antiques, furniture and unique items.
"We carry a little bit of everything and something for everyone," Terry added. "All kinds of furniture, glassware, pottery and kitchen items. One of our specialties is custom-built farm tables."
Another unique aspect of Finishing Touches is their furniture repair and restoration expertise, as well as a made-to-order furniture service.
"We have a great deal of experience in restoring all types of furniture and we can also make custom pieces. If a customer sees a furniture piece say, in a magazine that they like, we can build the piece to the customer's size and color specifications."
Yes, there are many reasons to take a scenic drive to Chester and visit the Finishing Touches Antiques shop. "We might be a tad out of the way, however it is a nice little drive in the country and we believe that visitors will be quite surprised at the variety and quality of our inventory.
"We are unassuming, but have a great deal to offer. We also like to tackle special requests and helping our customers find that perfect piece they've been searching for."
