Blake and Adele opened Classic Treasures in 2002. They wanted to introduce a new concept of arranging high quality, pre-owned furniture into designer rooms to the Triangle area. Blake learned from the best! His father, Daniel Addison, has been one of the most sought after interior designers and architects on the East Coast. With over 40 years of experience in the antique and furniture industries, it is no wonder that Dan's immense talent and eye for design rubbed off on Blake.
After managing Finders Keepers Furniture Consignment Store in Nashville, Tennessee, Blake decided to start his own family business in Durham, North Carolina - his hometown.
Classic Treasures has steadily grown and moved into its present location in the spring of 2005 making it the largest upscale consignment store featuring exclusively furniture and home furnishings in the Triangle.
Blake and Adele strive to provide excellent service for both consignors and customers.

Blake and Adele Addison
Why is there always great music playing at Classic Treasures? Blake Addison is a songwriter, singer, and guitar player. He was a lead singer for many years in the R & B band "Cream of Soul" and also traveled with "Black Diamond" and "One Mile South" based in Nashville, Tennessee. Listen and you'll hear him singing or whistling while moving furniture!
Blake attended a concert where Adele was playing piano and asked her out for coffee and the rest is history! Adele is a classically trained pianist who directed musicals and played for Broadway productions and opera. Blake and Adele enjoyed playing together in a church band in Nashville and later in Durham. Their youngest daughter was only one year old when Classic Treasures opened and she now sells her artwork in the store.
Over the years, many members of the family have been employed at Classic Treasures contributing their unique talents and helping to make the business a success.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Our family loves the State Fair in the Fall!
Blake's mom, Roberta Sims Addison, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by family, Tuesday Evening, July 3rd. Roberta was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, and was loved dearly by her family and friends. She was also a dear friend to many of our customers at Classic Treasures, and she loved nothing more than to sit with a cup of coffee and visit. We know that there is much celebrating in heaven as she is reunited with family and friends that have gone on before her.
