White Owl Antique Mall & Design Center: Antiques collector Rodney Miles is scheduled to open White Owl on June 1 at 455 N. Spring St., Concord. “After several years of being in the construction industry, I have found a way to begin a future in something I have always had a passion for,” said Miles, who’s collected antiques for about 20 years. “My vision is to have an antique mall with one-of-a-kind finds, from handmade candles to that special antique you can’t live without.” He started out wholesaling to dealers, then branched out to festivals and events. “We knew we were on the right track when we were the only furniture vendor invited to sell in a festival promoted by a local Wal-Mart,” Miles told the Observer. He said he hopes the mall will enable local small business owners to prosper. Special rates are being offered for the first 100 spaces. Details: www.whiteowlantiquemall.com and on Facebook.
