Rockin’ Horse Antiques Wants to Share Golden With You!

By Heather Eckels
 Rockin’ Horse Antiques has a great history along with the town it calls home. Jo Masteller first purchased the  Floral store at the building front in 1986. Shortly thereafter, in about 1989, she opened the rest of the ground floor as the Rockin’ Horse Antiques Store.  Jo learned about auctions and antiques from her husband Bob and they enjoyed running the Rockin’ Horse, buying, selling and restoring antiques for the next 26 years.
 Jo sold the Floral shop in 2009 and semi-retired in 2015 from the Antique store and Jo’s daughter Debbie Sherwood took over management of the Rockin’ Horse. The store is still going strong after 32 years and is the best antique store in Golden.
Customers make it a point to return yearly from all over the country and the world.  Many of the dealers that joined the Rockin’ Horse over 25 years ago are still there along with a great group of passionate and creative new dealers.
 Rockin’ Horse Antiques is what community is all about. Why not partake in Golden’s Christmas activities and, of course, stop in the Rockin’ Horse Antiques. There will be Select Dealer Holiday Sales through December. Rockin’ Horse is located at 1106 Washington      Avenue in downtown Golden, Colorado. They are open Mon.-Fri. 10-6, Sat. 10-5, Sun. 11-4. Give them a call at 303-278-8803 for more information.
