About Us


Antiques of Dallas is owned by Bernie Bagley and Randy Denosowicz. They started the company in January 2010. While both enjoy collecting antiques, it is definitely the hunting and finding the unusual that they most enjoy. When they find an item that has a story behind it, that is even more exciting for them.

 

BERNIE BAGLEY

 

Bernie is originally from Massachusetts. He moved to Texas in the 1980's. Selling antiques is not new to him. Years ago, he owned a store in a small town west of Fort Worth. His shop was called "Age Before Beauty" because you had to walk through the antique store to get to the beauty salon.

 

When he is out looking for finds, he can dig around for hours. He can "pick"  with the best. He usually is the one that finds the really different and sometimes oddball items. Of course, we often have to do  a lot of research to determine out what the item is.

 

Photography is one of his interests and he provides the photos for our web site.

RANDY DENOSOWICZ


Randy is a native Texan. He also lived on the east coast, in Boston and New York City. There, he really began collecting and learning about antiques and American history. When he moved back to Texas, he became a co-owner of an antique and gift store in the River Oaks section of Houston, called Norton, Ltd.

 

His passion is furniture. Randy always wants to know the "story" behind a find. He doesn't  mind spending hours, cleaning and preparing a piece as though it will go into his own home; and sometimes it does. Interestingly, he shopped both Brimfield and Round Top during their very early days. Today, he is having fun selling at Round Top as well as online.


He has been an Accredited Member (Antiques, Furnishings and Decorative Arts) of the International Society of Appraisers since 2011. His speciaties are antiquities and Americana as well as American and British furniture..

 

Since he has a computer and marketing background, Randy built and maintains our web site.
