    Paper Moon Antiques, located at 317 Commercial St., hosted a grand opening on Saturday. The community has been anxiously awaiting the opening of the unique store owned by John and Becky Doan.

    “I had 10 people try to come in yesterday,” said Becky Doan.

    The Doans, who owned an antique store in Wichita, have been working for close to six months to prepare for the opening of the Emporia location. Becky Doan is originally from Emporia and the couple felt opening a store in her hometown would be a good fit. They carefully boxed up their treasures and relocated them to Emporia “van load by van load.”

    “We had our shop open in Wichita for about four and half years, but it just kind of felt right to come back here,” said Becky Doan.
