Team Bio:


Sharon Callovi co-owner:

Was raised in Wood Dale, IL. She married Stuart Callovi in 1964 and moved to Elgin, IL for 4 years and then East Dundee, IL where she has lived for 52 years and raised a son, Troy. She retired from Safety Kleen but even while working had a passion for doing flea markets or renting a booth in Antique stores to sell her treasures.

From 1989 to 1996 Stuart and she owned a store called Circles of Gold specializing in Jewelry and Baseball Cards in  East Dundee, IL Early in 2017 Stuart passed away. At that time we had a booth in Elgin Antiques and Carriage House Antiques.

In late 2017, Joe Cordero asked Sharon to be co-owner of J&S River Antiques and "Things" in West Dundee, IL The shop opened in September 2017 and we remain at Carriage House Antiques in Crystal Lake.

Joe Cordero: Co-owner:

Being raised in Elgin, IL, there were so many things that started my interests: cars, the Elgin watch factory close to our house, the dairies in town- Ludwig, Modern, Bordens, all these things and the history of small of those Businesses still interest me. You can say I'm a history enthusiast.

I began to collect toys, coins, Baseball, Football cards, Books, antique skeleton keys and stamps. I would say being raised in the50's had a lot to do with it. We did not have all the options of cell phones, video games. We created our own hobbies and interests so you can say that the last 60 years he was  a collector of all kinds of different things and items.

He would say this led me later in life a retirement hobby and along with my friend Sharon we decided to open our store and thoroughly enjoy what we do.
