Ted Drabik, Owner
Even as a youngster delivering newspapers and cutting grass, Ted had a good head for business. His father’s furniture restoration hobby piqued Ted’s interest in developing a viable antiques business. After earning a business degree from James Madison University, in Harrisonburg, VA, he was ready to get started. In 1986, he opened Cornerstone Antiques which evolved into Cornerstone: Antiques – Consignments – New Home Furnishings.
Ted’s keen business sense, commitment to providing quality merchandise, and dedication to customer satisfaction have made Cornerstone the area’s premier home furnishings store. He now lives near York, Pennsylvania with his wife, Mary, and their four daughters.
Beth Plein, Consignment Manager
A second generation antiques dealer in the business for 30 years, Beth brings a wealth of experience to Cornerstone where she manages consignments of silver, glass, china, porcelain, rugs, furniture and so much more. With her love of research and years of buying and selling “smalls” and furniture, she has developed a broad and comprehensive knowledge base. Beth’s insight makes her a valuable resource for Cornerstone consignors and shoppers alike.
Alex Hernan, Floor and Delivery Supervisor
A long time Baltimore resident, Alex came to us after graduating Dulaney High School and before his freshman year in college. He joined our delivery team where he quickly took charge and became our “go to” guy. In 2009 he was named to his current post where he oversees all of the Prep, Placement and Delivery of both the New and Consignment Furniture. Alex’s hard work ethic and agreeable nature assures all of our customers a great experience before and after the sale.
Cornerstone’s trained delivery team knows how to protect and transport your furniture. Just another way that Cornerstone separates itself from other Baltimore consignment shops. Whether you’re sending pieces in to be sold, or bringing home your new prized possessions, our team of delivery specialists can get the job done for one flat rate- no matter how many pieces.
Hannah is practically a fixture at Cornerstone where she has been a part of the team for almost two decades. A wealth of wisdom and witticism, her journey with antiques began in 1946 when she married a “collector of everything!” With a charm all her own, Hannah is loved by customers and co-workers alike.
Furniture Prep Team
It takes many hands to bring beautiful antiques and previously owned furniture to our showroom floor. The skilled hands of our talented “prep team” are essential. Fortunately, Wally and his team are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get those hands dirty. No other consignment store in Baltimore prepares furniture like we do.
