Stevie wrote Silver Springs for the Rumors album, which topped the charts for months in the 1970's. Unfortunately, Mick Fleetwood did not include Silver Springs on the album, which caused a long-term rift.Stevie had written the song for her mother and given her the rights
.It was not until the hugely successful Fleetwood Mac Reunion tour in 1997 that the song was released, and it became an instant top hit.Stevie wrote the song about her relationship with Lindsey Buckingham, letting him know, you will hear me on the radio and never forget me.
Since reopening, Stevie hugged the store manager and said, "Thank you for making my mother's dream come true." The store is currently run by the Nicks family. Stevie's Nick's mother Barbara, now 82, has owned her antique shop for well over 30 years. She loves antiques because she stated, "They are history...I have things owned by my grandmother. These things were important to them, and so they are important to me. I have only Stevie and Chris (her children)." In essense, she is leaving the antiques to her store.
Barbara began loving antiques when she got her first SHIRLEY TEMPLE doll. She then began collecting antique dolls, then china and antique figurines. Her love for antiques grew, and she has been collecting a vast array of antiques and collectibles for 40 years now.
Antiques are becoming even more popular, as people realize their value increases. The television show, “The Antique Roadshow”, has brought a lot of attention to antique collection. People collect all types of antiques. Currently, antique furniture is the most popular collectible. The store has just added room for antique furniture.
Silver Spring Emporium also has a small collection of products with Stevie Nick’s autograph. FANS of STEVIE and FLEETWOOD MAC should note, Stevie, unfortunately will not be signing autographs any longer unless her fans meet her personally. This is due to nonfans buying her autograph to sell on eBay and various sites to make a profit. If you are a fan and want to get an AUTHENTIC STEVIE NICKS AUTOGRAPH directly from her mother’s antique shop, be sure to CALL the store right now! The LAST Stevie Nicks memorabilia is anticipated to go extremely quickly! Business Phone: (480) 947-1627
