Scott Hanson, owner of Antique Warehouse on 25th Street, knows Galveston well. He and his wife Holly have owned and operated their antique store since 1994 and have come to understand the needs and interests of those who choose to live, build and survive in this island town. Since reopening their antique store post-Hurricane Ike, Scott may be best-known for his reclaimed furniture. Scott has been collecting old wood to build new structures for years, but after the storm his supply of materials skyrocketed. Instead of letting it be thrown into landfills he collected and restored it, creating beautiful, unique pieces. He was “green” when “green” wasn’t cool.
