Local entrepreneurs own fun side business

Peter Alewine’s full-time job is running a local pool installation and repair company, but on Fridays, he gets to enjoy his side gig.

Alewine – Manager of Pete Alewine Pool & Spa, is also co-owner of 5th Quarter Sports Cards & Memorabilia, which is located at 4490 Washington Road near Ace Hardware and Burn Boot Camp in the Lenox Plaza shopping center in Evans. The store buys, sells, and trades a wide variety of collectible baseball, football, and basketball cards. “It’s really fun to meet and talk to people of all different ages who have collected,” he says. “We’ve got a great clientele.” Alewine joined local entrepreneurs Andy Hobbs and Scott Hill, who founded the business about two years ago. Hobbs – owner of Rustic Vibes Furniture Décor Gifts, devotes part of his showroom to 5th Quarter. While all three owners have other professions, “This is a job we enjoy,” he states. The business also hosts trade nights once a month. These events give local collectors the opportunity to “talk to each other and enjoy the hobby,” Alewine explains. (See photo at the top of story)

5th Quarter Sports Cards & Memorabilia is at 4490 Washington Road in the Lenox Plaza in Evans.
