66 Autumn 2018 | Wake Forest 27587 Magazine The WF Metro A visitors' guide to items and places of interest PHOTOGRAPHS BY PHILIP M. READ A study in contrasts Dennis and Sue Michaels are close. Sure, they have been married nearly 40 years, but it's more than that. They're business owners, too, he running a "male-oriented antiques" store — think Rock 'Em Sock 'Em Robots, an under- the-tree toy favorite of the Sixties — and she operating a culinary store, with "bon appetit" kitchen towels and cooking lessons to boot. And, they're close in another way. They share the same storefront, she to the left, he to the right as you walk in, no doubt making for some double-takes. "Yeah. We're pretty different," said Sue Michaels, who runs The Kitchen Store NC and shares the space with her husband, Dennis Michaels, who runs Mantiques Collectibles, which touts "the unique, the odd and the unusual" on Wake Forest's North Main Street. So how are these two business themes reconciled? Easy. "I deal in memories," Dennis Michaels said. She, it turns out, makes them. "It's the social aspect that's so unique to her," he said of the cooking classes and the bonding that comes with them, when they sit down and share the meal they created. "There seems to be a hunger for that." It turns out that one spouse can be sharing the joy of cooking, as they say, while the other is walking down memory lane, past a handmade wooden model of the ill-fated passenger ship, XLI8MXERMGERHWYGLQSZMITSWXIVWEWSRIJSV XLI½PQ±48²WXEVVMRK'PMJJ6SFIVWSR as Navy Lt.

"The best grater ever," said Sue Michaels, the chef-in-residence.
