About Us

A short history and background on Baker & Co. Antiques is below. We look forward to hearing from you. Don't be shy about emailing or calling us!

The Baker & Co. Antiques website went live in January 1998. As one of the first antique Americana focused websites owned by an individual antique shop, it broke new ground, earning awards and kudos from antique lovers everywhere.

Tom Baker has been a dealer (and collector) of country American antiques for over 40 years. Tom started out exhibiting in prestigious antique shops in New England including Antique Associates at West Townsend MA, Boston Road Antiques in Groton MA, and 1812 House Antiques in Manchester VT. In 1993, Tom moved with his family to Soquel California and opened the Baker & Co. Antiques shop in Soquel. Tom has an uncanny eye for antiques, remembering the smallest of details and always seeking items that are colorful & folky. Anything in old paint or old textiles are Tom's true loves. In 2015, we moved back to the east coast and now reside in the Albany NY area - which is where Tom met his wife Sheila.

Baker & Co. Antiques is a member of the New Hampshire Antiques Dealers Associationand the Genesee Country Antique Dealers Association. In addition to our online presence, we exhibit at a number of antiques shows and also have booths in two group shops. View our Show Schedule for more information.

From 2000 to 2012, Tom promoted and managed the California Country Antique Shows in Los Altos, Hollywood, and Costa Mesa, CA. In 2009, Tom and his wife Sheila created Dig Antiques to help collectors and dealers be able to locate, buy and sell antiques. It was driven by the realization that there are many antiques dealers focusing on country, folk art and Americana with great websites but it was difficult as a colletor and buyer to locate them. Dig Antiques provides a one-stop search of antiques websites. The website also includes the Shops at Dig Antiques for those sellers that do not have their own website or are looking for an easy way to sell antiques. With over 55 Shops, this has become a destination for antique lovers. Be sure to check out Dig Antiques.
