April Field Trip

Cline's Country Antiques

Donald Cline has always had a love for old things. Living on land that has been in his family for 200 years has nurtured his love and respect for the past.  With diverse degrees from poultry science to economics, and even a time in the Navy Reserves, he wasn't quite sure what he wanted to do with his life. He enjoyed attending the many rural auctions in the area and started collecting by the truck load. It quickly outgrew his home and barn. In 1975, the family decided to quit farming. With numerous barns now empty, Don collected even more. In 1977 he opened Clines Country Antiques on the old home place in Mt. Pleasant, North Carolina. In 1980 he left his teaching career to devote all his time "junk". 

 In the 30 years that he has operated, he has been involved supplying decor and signage to many restaurants. Cline's Antiques has provided set decor and props for many major movies such as "The Color Purple."

    In 1986, he co-authored "Buying and Selling Antiques: A Dealers Inside View."  He has been featured in numerous newspaper articles, magazines such as "Our State," and on Home and Garden TV.

    Cline hates to throw anything away.  He knows that somewhere, someone may need or want that very thing. This is not a "prissy" place. Come dressed prepared to rummage and wander over acres of things.
