The World Wide Antique Show, now more than half a century old itself, brings together more than 150 vendors and antique hunters for a three-day convention bursting with paintings, furniture, glass, and collectibles from the past. Art aficionados ponder whether postmodern pedestals should hold porcelain, pottery, steam-powered cellphones, or bronze, and collections of antique furniture gracefully continue to stand up to gravity. Time-tested necklaces drape around necks, books house knowledge from generations past, and art glass glimmers under contemporary lights. Visitors park in a free lot before wandering among the collectibles, period clothing, and dolls created back when children still played with each other instead of robots.
Forever Photos and Files proprietor Brianne Tobin knows the hard truth: like all good things, memories fade. With this in mind, she’s devoted the past 15 years of her professional life to saving nostalgic keepsakes from getting trampled by the march of time. After clients deliver fading photographs, yellowing love letters, and Eisenhower-era grocery lists, Tobin gently handles each article, converting them into PDF files searchable by keyword, or photos tagged with names of locations and loved ones. Her video digitization services also help customers swap their bulky, grainy VHS tapes for compact, crisp DVDs.

Photo Element Studio is a photographer’s dream—the interior is a Rubik’s cube of different settings, colors, and backdrops, and the half-acre garden studio has rural, rustic charms such as a rushing creek and a tattered shed. For photographers Tait and Julie DeBaca, the studio is the setting for their family, newborn, and high-school-senior portrait sessions. Many of the photographs in the duo’s portfolio have saturated, contrasting colors, which help to accentuate the green trees and blue skies of an outdoor shoot or highlight the subjects’ faces and emotions of a black-and-white photo against a white backdrop. The photographers also let the sun's natural light impart a sense of warmth, but not like the one you get in your cheeks when someone catches you eating ice cream straight from the carton with your finger.
