Meet the Consignors!
Every month we will be featuring new consignors so you, the customer, can learn more about them and the unique background they each bring to Marietta Antique Mall!
Peggy Jackson - March Consignor of the Month
Peggy is the owner of Big Chicken Chic doing business at Marietta Antique Mall. She currently has two booths in the mall, and specializes in painted and repurposed furniture with a European flair; English and French antiques and collectibles; and restored antique and vintage items.
Peggy has received training in interior design and came by her love of antiques naturally, her mother being an antiques dealer. She has traveled to France, England, and Switzerland since leaving the corporate world and has translated those experiences into her business. She most recently joined another consignor at the Marietta Antique Mall, Cindy Cowart, for a group shopping trip in England, attending two international antique fairs. Peggy has received her shipment from England and is currently featuring the merchandise in her booths. Peggy’s local haunts are many, but the second weekend of every month she can likely be spotted at Scott’s Antique Market finding her next treasure.
Trina Jackson has been fascinated with rocks her whole life. She began collecting as a child and as an adult, she and her mother became interested in gemstone beads. From there, a business was born! They started selling necklaces and earrings at Georgia Gem & Mineral shows. It was at these shows where Trina gained exposure to other products and specimens that she added to her collections.
She went on to study silversmithing at GA State and later, the Spruill Center for the Arts.
Another one of Trina’s artistic interests is metalsmithing to transform random, found objects into exquisite works of art – all of which include some rocks or stones.
Her spaces at MAM feature several items made from rocks and minerals.
At this demo, she’ll have lots of carved stone specimens as well as loose gemstones you could make into jewelry or just collect if you’re so inclined.
Bring your questions! Trina looks forward to speaking with you about her rocks or yours!
In addition to MAM, Trina does two shows each year — the Georgia Gem & Mineral Society show Mother’s Day weekend and the Cobb Gem & Mineral Society show the weekend before Thanksgiving. (Both of these shows are Friday-Sunday shows at the Cobb County Civic Center)
