Q&A: Taylor Thistlethwaite
At 32, Taylor Thistlethwaite is one of the youngest antiques dealers on the circuit. The Kentucky native radiates a Southern charm that runs as deep as his appreciation for the material that hails from below the Mason-Dixon line. We caught up with him at the Philadelphia Antiques and Art Show to get his take on what it’s like to be young in the business nowadays, his thoughts on the market and how he manages to fit all of his inventory into his townhouse.
How did you get started?
When I was a little kid, my parents were passionate collectors. Most people would consider me tortured because my parents never took me to Disney World, but I knew every antiques shop up and down the Shenandoah Valley. I used to get thrown into attics and they’d yell, “Taylor, you see anything up there?!”
