Michael with Antiquarian Traders, Beverley Hills owner Mark Slotkin who tells the stories behind these 5 pics ~
Pic 1 ~ With Mark Slotkin “Michael Jackson was a regular customer and would regularly visit Antiquarian Traders. Michael would insist that we’d close the store so he could shop privately. I would joke with him that there was no one here and invariably when he was driven up in his blacked-out SUV, we would become busy. He made the best of it and no one ever bothered him. He loved to shop for antiques, was very trusting, had great taste, and as a result, he got very good deals and came back again and again. His last transaction was in 2007”
Pic 2 ~ With Mark and family “As shy as he was, Michael was always gracious in taking photos and signing autographs”.
Pic 3 ~ Michael Jackson and myself having good times at the piano. I love to play as did Michael. This was a memorable occasion because Michael made some beatbox type sounds from his mouth that sounded much like a combination of a snap of a shoe shine rag and a train on railroad tracks. It was incredible and he could have made a living off of just that. You just had to hear it once to remember it forever”
Pic 4 ~ In this image, Michael is autographing the actual photograph shown in the next slide. By his side is my wife Gail, Jesse Dickenson (Mississippi’s Supreme Court Chief Justice), my daughter Nicollette and Don Tyner (a highly successful businessman and customer of Antiquarian Traders).
Pic 5 ~ Michael visited our house in 1996 when our first daughter Nicollette was two years old. He loved children and he made her very happy. Here we see the actual publicity photo that Michael autographed for Nicollette.
