Gatehouse Antique Market: biz from a hobby

When Susan and Wayne Flynn bought Gatehouse Antique Market, an antique mall at 620 N. Campbell Station Road, three years ago they enlarged the mall and added more furniture and other antiques to the mall’s selections. A love of antiques and history led Susan and Wayne Flynn of Farragut to open an antique business several years ago in Clinton.

An opportunity to bring their business to the Town in which they live led the Flynns to relocate to Gatehouse Antique Market, 620 N. Campbell Station Road, about three years ago.

“We made a lot of changes when we bought the mall,” Susan Flynn, co-owner of Gatehouse Antique Market, said. “We enlarged it and added quite a bit more furniture.

“We started collecting antiques, and it just developed into being antique dealers,” she added. Flynn said she and Wayne owned and operated Past Tymes, an antique business in Clinton, for seven years.

“But, we live in Farragut, so when this came up for sale, we decided to close that store and move everything here,” she said.
