OXFORD – The good news is Peter Charak has a lot of junk. The bad news is he’s got a lot of it. But in this case, the Oxford resident is quite positive that one man’s junk – his term for antiques – could definitely be another man’s treasure.
Not short on antiques or conversations – topics range on just about anything – Charak and his companion Nanette Anderson have lived life in many places and in many ways, and they have a barn full of artifacts for sale to prove it.
“Truthfully, I don’t even know what I have anymore,” Charak laughed, admitting that 20 years worth of local and worldly finds have outgrown the antique shop he’s had open off and on – but always on his mind – since 1989. “But each piece is definitely an antique to somebody.”
