Although Dapper Dan’s Art and Antique Gallery has been in business for 30 years, it is relatively new to the Farmville community. But it quickly has settled in and maintained its popularity.

Owners Dan Roberson and Joe White restored the shop at 3743 S. Main St. and officially opened in October.

“We love being in Farmville and the small-town atmosphere,” White said. “We still have people who stop by and say 'Thank you for coming to Farmville.’ The local support is amazing, and our Greenville customers have followed us here.”

Dapper Dan’s also has new some hardware to show customers after being named the Farmville Chamber of Commerce’s Merchant of the Month award for July.

“Dapper Dan’s was an obvious choice. ... They are dedicated to Farmville like no other,” Judy Gidley, director of the Farmville chamber, said of Roberson and White.

Dapper Dan’s supports chamber and community events, including the Dogwood Festival window decorating contest, Taste of Farmville and Little Patriots on Parade, Gidley said. The business also supports the chamber’s annual golf tournament.

Roberson and White said they were humbled to have been selected as Merchant of the Month.

“This is a great honor, especially with the time we have been here,” White said. “To receive the award so quickly, we appreciate the support and encouragement.”

Dapper Dan’s specializes in silver, furniture, jewelry, glassware, art, antiques and a limited selection of vintage clothing.

In its relocation to Farmville, Dapper Dan’s shifted its focus to art.

“It has done very well,” White said. “We were able to expand (our art and antiques) in Farmville because of the space.”

The store also carries a selection of North Carolina-made products, including N.C. Pottery and Carolina Shuckers.

Dapper Dan’s is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

For more information, call 753-7001.
