Deborah Norman makes antiquing fun. Warm and knowledgeable, she has conjured an irresistible environment to help you see how easily antiques can slip into your heart and home. When a piece calls out to you, Deborah is happy to relate its history, where it was made, when, how—the whole story. If you’re unsure where to put it a bit of her expert coaching and enthusiastic conversation helps reveal the ideal possibility.
Antiques run in Deborah’s blood. Her great grandmother, Ada Chase, wrote for The Magazine Antiques when first published in the 1920s, and her grandmother, Virginia Albertine, bought and sold antiques for decades at her Norwich, Connecticut shop. Deborah opened Grand & Water Antiques in 1994. Today, one American History degree and years of devotion later, Deborah’s passion for the lifestyle and her shop still burns strong.
