Sitting at an antique table adorned with a set of English dishes from the late 1800s, Bjoern Lorenzen is right at home. The 32-year resident of Bardstown opened his antique shop — Court Square Antiques — almost two years ago after having retired from clock making.

I’m changing it up this year, just to do a little something different.
