Two Minutes with Trina Smith
Trina Smith, along with her husband Scott, is the owner of Antique Junction, a new antiques store located not far from downtown Piedmont. Located in the historic Duke Power building on 18 Piedmont Highway, Antique Junction offers more than 5,000 square feet of space. Entrepreneurs at heart, opening Antique Junction was a logical next step for the Smiths. They already had the building from another successful venture that they sold, and they both shared a life-long love of antiques. She recently answered some of our questions below.
