Welcome to Stockton Mercantile in historic Rocheport, Missouri.
Our story began in 1975, when Wanda, Granny, Stockton (Yes, she really was my Granny!), opened the doors of Granny's Antiques, offering antiques and collectibles.
In 1993, her son (Yes, that would be my father!), D.A., Skip, Meadows, continued the tradition. His changes to the antique shop over the years left it a little more like Sanford and Son. In 2003, I purchased Granny's from my father, and changed its face again. Although I continued to sell antiques and collectibles, my vision for the shop included offering new merchandise — gifts and home decor. However, I found that I could not totally eliminate the rare, antique treasures that had been our family tradition. It must be in my blood, because I love finding these uncommon treasures too, so today my shop displays a delightful mix of antiques, collectibles, architectural accents, and exclusive repurposed creations, with the majority being new gifts and home decor.
My changing the name of Granny's Antiques to Stockton Mercantile was an emotional journey, as I am quite proud of Granny's history. But with my new vision for Granny's to be a true blend of new and old, it seemed a name change was in order. But how could I maintain its connection to the past? Thus, I chose Stockton, Granny's surname, and Mercantile, because we are housed in an old mercantile building, and mercantile means a little bit of everything — quite appropriate!
