The store is owned by two sisters, Dea Maltby and Sandy Lyles who have been running the business for the past eight years. They house over 35 dealers of antiques and boast 7,500 square feet of shoppiing pleasure. They are the largest antique store in town. "One of the things that brought us out here was the art," said Maltby who moved here with her sister from Florida. "There's so much creativity in this little valley." Salida is located about 200 miles from Colorado Springs in the Upper Arkansas River Valley and is known for its diverse recreational opportunities and proximity to 15, 14,000 foot peaks. The Sawatch mountain range lies to the northwest, Sangre de Cristo range to the south and the Mosquito range to the north. Surrounded by mountains, Salida enjoys a mild climate year round, known as the Banana Belt and this creates ideal weather for recreation of all kinds. photo by Price Chambers 5/31/05
