Attorney Wayne Sanchez, whose wife, Janet, owns Derby Antique Market, would like to set the record straight.
His family’s store shares the same Derby address as the former Derby Antiques & More, but that’s it.
This is an issue because of news this week that Sandra Ostrander, owner of the former Derby Antiques & More, pleaded guilty in Sedgwick County District Court to three counts of theft for taking items on consignment without paying the consignors when the items sold.
Derby Antiques & More closed in January 2014 after less than a year in business at 317 N. Rock Road. Derby Antique Market opened there in March 2014.
Sanchez says people have been calling thinking Derby Antique Market is now closed.
“We told them we weren’t closing,” he says. “We’re not associated with that other individual … who did her vendors wrong.”
