Biography

Norman has always been interested in history and the preservation of historical artifacts weather it be furniture, art or architecture. When Norman was a child his uncles came back from WWI and WWII with different souvenirs from the wars that immediately sparked his interest in military items. He started to collect various items then and through High School and college including buttons, badges and swords. From collecting in his early years, he advanced quickly to buying and selling all kinds of weaponry until after he finished college. Then through research, reading and visits to antique shops and visits with antiquarians, he developed his interest in early Americana.
In 1962 Norman met his wife Mary and they started buying and selling early antiques. In 1964 they were married and soon after opened an antique shop on Allen Street in Buffalo, New York. During this time and for 30+ years the Gronnings both taught school as well as ran their antique business. They moved from Buffalo to Eastern New York State, and then to Vermont, where they still continue their business. They now reside in Shaftsbury, Vermont in a 1680, Dutch Barn (house) that was dismantled and erected on it's present site.
Norman concentrates his business on buying and selling early Decorative Art objects along with American Furniture, Paintings and Military Items. He has always been a dealer's dealer with an eye for originality and form.
