Dan has collected Antiques since the age of sixteen. His passion for color and design came to life during the eight years of ownership of the Pace House Inn, Franklin, Virginia. A thirteen thousand Grand home owned by W. T. Pace was a respese for all who entered! Dan's hospitality was formed early from his Norfolk beginnings as he grew under the love and direction of his parents Jim and Ann Hunt. At the early age of seven Dan was mentored by Thelma Royal at Wards Corner where his roots grew deep and strong for the love of Norfolk. The Empress Beauty Salons, Wards Corner Beauty Academy were my play ground for life.
