Bill & Pauline Allen have been involved in collecting antiques, vintage furniture and décor along with home made items for years and have decided to open a storefront at 702 E. Lincoln Way. They have been buying and selling items in stores in nearby communities but now plan to bring it all to Jefferson. The business is called Good Stuff by Bill & Pauline and is now open for business. The Jefferson Wants You team awarded the Allens $2,500 towards their start-up costs. The Allens are long-time residents of Jefferson.
