Hello, I am Pat Delony, the owner of Geaux Vintage Antiques, LLC. Like so many other people in this world, I’ve been blessed to have many diverse interests and several career paths in my lifetime…..My educational background includes a BS in Accounting, which lead me into public accounting and a CPA practice of my own……..then as a General Manager in the automobile industry, I utilized my management skills overseeing a staff in excess of 100 employees….and now, with Geaux Vintage Antiques, I finally have the opportunity to combine my previous business experience with a lifetime accumulation of antiques knowledge that began as a small girl in northwest Louisiana. From an early age my Mother instilled in my sisters and me a love and appreciation for antiques made by craftsmen of generations past……when a favorite Aunt was stationed in England, Mother spent a memorable summer there, and our fondness for English antiques began!! Always “collecting” antiques for her three girls (a good excuse!) and an avid researcher, Mother once operated an antique store…… and I have a sister in the antique business as well………so it’s definitely in our genetic code! And Iwould have to mention that my Father was in the cattle business, the consummate “trader” of livestock and real estate…..which completes my many experiences at auctions, either livestock, antiques or automobile, and provides my appreciation (and need!!) for that perpetual “hunt” for treasures. But most importantly, for the past 23 years I have continually been rewarded with the joy of raising two children, a son and daughter who are embarking on their own careers today…...which provided the perfect opportunity to blend business with passion, thus creating Geaux Vintage Antiques!! At Geaux Vintage Antiques you’ll find individually selected, quality items, purchased from premier European shippers with years of experience. Nothing is purchased in bulk, as all items are individually selected, each piece for its unique characteristics and quality. I travel extensively, searching for beautiful pieces to offer to my customers…………Obviously I have a fondness for English oak, carved when possible, and barley twist is always preferred!! I’m drawn to antique beveled mirrors and tables of any size for their flexible use throughout the home and office….. But I also have a love and fascination for the unique and unusual, so Geaux Vintage will always provide surprises, perhaps an antique English letter scale, specialty Staffordshire, old Pub signs, and special furniture with original presentation plaques……….I’m always drawn to a piece with provenance that provides more about its history……..that’s “lagniappe” to all of us in Louisiana and I can’t pass it up!! And yes, the “Geaux” in Geaux Vintage Antiques is my “nod” and recognition to my home state of Louisiana…….even in north Louisiana, we say “Geaux Team” at football games…………and it’s my little play on words, because I “geaux” many places to find unique treasures for my customers…….and I hope to become a valuable resource for your antique furniture needs for years to come.
