Brenda Reno and Mary White are more than just mother and daughter.

Since Feb. 1, 2013, the pair have also been business partners, overseeing the downtown antique store, Sailor Antiques & Collectibles.

“Our business involves the sale of antiques, collectibles and other vintage items,” Reno said. 

“Originally, I worked in a corporate job in Pryor, but I’d always had an antiques booth during my career because it’s always been a way for me to relax.”

Sailor Antiques property has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Eventually, Reno opened her own shop in Claremore – a place for antique lovers like herself.

“How we operate is, we have the space and rent it out to a proprietor, who is responsible for furnishing it, keeping it clean and marketing the items, which are generally vintage in nature,” she said. “We have 40 proprietors spread out over 7,000 square feet.”

Proprietor booth spaces are month-to-month, so unique items offered change from one month to the next, but always with something for collectors or those who just want to be reminded of simpler times.

“We get a lot of business from travelers, but also from members of the community and others from around the area,” she said. “Antique shopping is a unique experience. So many people have told us that it’s relaxing, it’s enjoyable, and it evokes memories from their childhood. People will come in just to look around and come across things that remind them of when they were growing up or of their parents. Something we hear quite often is ‘Oh, my grandmother used to have one of those.’”

Sailor Antiques itself is something of an antique, as the building itself was built in 1902 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.

“We’re blessed that we’re in this beautiful historic building and we’re also in a corridor of some main thoroughfares – Route 66, the Will Rogers Turnpike, Highway 20, etc.,” she said.

Among some of the more collectible items to be found at Sailor are Fenton glassware and Frankoma Pottery of Sapulpa, but highly collectible or not, Reno said all items carry fond memories for someone and her store – and Claremore – are perfect destinations.

“I believe that Claremore is a destination, a great community – just the three blocks that are historic downtown Claremore is a great area,” she said. “We’re all neighbors – we share a lot of joy and passion for promoting our businesses and community as a family destination for antiques, boutiques, uniques, and dining. This is a great community.”

Sailor Antiques & Collectibles is located at 422 W. Will Rogers Boulevard.
