The Poe Family Joe, Lindsey, Lakelyn & Samson
In September 2012, Joe & Lindsey Poe's dreams of opening their own Antiques, Collectibles & More type store came true. After 8 years of buying & selling these goodies at flea markets, malls, online, & antique shows, they were finally able to open their first retail store. Joe & Lindsey's mission at the OLD TOWN STORE is to redo, reuse, & repurpose lost and forgotten treasures from the past. That mission was even put to use when coming up with a name. Early in 2012 Joe picked a sign from the OLD TOWN STORE (an unfortunately closed grocery store in Marengo, IN that he would frequent as a kid). After some thought of what to name the store, it all came to him one day as he admired the OLD TOWN STORE sign on the fence in his backyard. It was a natural fit for the Mom & Pop style store & the rest was history.
