Long before she opened The Keepsake Shop and while she was still at the sheriff's office, Joan White decided she and her mom, Kathleen Robinson, would open a sewing business.
“And by the time mom retired, sewing was out,” White said.
Then she and mom settled on antiques. So the two visited antiques shops and sales.
“It didn't take us long before we realized we knew nothing about antiques,” White said.
