Clyde Thomas, owner of Booneville Antiques is having his business rebuilt after it burned to the ground. A selection of lanterns were among the few antiques salvaged from the fire, including this one on his lap. Thomas plans to restore as many of the lanterns as he can for the store's planned re-opening. "I'll probably be pushing up daisies before I can finish them all," he said.
