It was one of those stores that you knew if you walked into it, you would be soon be buying something. Sacks Antiques had that feeling: quality, price and then there was Stan. Like the other fixtures in the store, Stan Sacks was always there. He could be standing in the door, he would be hiding in the back. But he was there.
Sacks Antigues will be holding a “Retirement Sale,” during Marblehead’s Annual Christmas Walk. Frank Kaminski of Kaminski Auction of Beverly, an old friend, will assist with the sale. As reported in the Salem News1 “Stan’s grandfather, Hyman, an immigrant from Odessa, Russia, first opened an antique shop in Boston in 1899.”
The history of Marblehead began with small merchants and businessmen, and continues in the same way to this day. The health of Marblehead’s business community is a testament, through good times and bad, that Marblehead is a town that supports its businesses. Sadly, though, now there will be one less well-loved business that opens its doors after the New Year rings in.
