About our Store


Our business was first established as Stone of Scone Antiques in 1976 in Connecticut. About 10 years later, my husband Tom, who had become intrigued with Samuel Colt and Colt Firerms, (we lived close to Hartford, the home of Colt Firearms), became a Federally Licensed Firearm dealer. We sold and appraised antique and collectible firearms and ammunition.   We decided to move to North Carolina and the mountains. 


We also deal in old, used and out-of-print books, old maps and ephemera.

We have lived in the foothills of North Carolina for 18 years and have enjoyed every minute.  The scenery is outstanding, the people are friendly, and the  years have flown by.
