Appraiser Bios
Barbara and Jerry Garner: Barbara and Jerry, born and raised in Eastern Washington, have been active in the antiques business since the 1970s. Like most people in the antiques business they started as collectors, looking for that special item to decorate their home. They entered the "antiques business" in 1985 as a means to find an outlet for their growing inventory. In 1990 they moved to the Kitsap Peninsula and soon established Antique Junction in Poulsbo, WA.  In 2004, they retired from the daily business of Antique Junction, closing their shop, but continue to be involved with antiques in the community. Barbara and Jerry enjoy being involved with the Antiques Appraisal Fair and the Kitsap County Historical Society, offering their services and knowledge of antiques and collectibles.
