Great spot for dealers and customers – I have been an antique dealer for over 20 years (10 at Lincoln) and I am in 4 other locations. By far, this has always been my most lucrative location because we have such great, loyal customers. I try very hard to find great stuff cheap so I can pass the deals along to our customers. Plus I love to hunt for cool mid century (my favorite) and other era pieces, so I can change my room settings, and the only way to do this is to sell fast. I shop here too, and have found some great bargans for my own home.
Being a Dealer there? NO. Shopping: OK – Not a good deal for dealers as owner wants you to sell your stuff for zip. If you want to make money, this is not the place for dealers. How much can you discount and survive? Plus, there are rumblings about temper tantrums from the head desk at times.
unique antique store – This is the antique store you wish you always found. The prices are honestly pretty good and they seem to have a lot of interesting, quality furniture and other items everytime I go in there and are actually priced to sell, not sit around and gather dust. The proprietor seems to be pretty forthright and not a BSer. There are also usually some nice sales depending on the lot. Worth a stroll through. They're also open until 7 I believe every night.
Specializing in nothing and carrying just about everything, this mall has just what you weren't looking for. – The Scene
Big but not overwhelming, this shop is loaded with antique furniture, jewelry, stained glass, paintings, posters and plenty of tchotchkes. If you're looking for something specific, you can ask the owner, but there's so much stuff, you may just have to browse for yourself.
Eras range from Victorian to mid-century modern and include art deco, traditional, mission and French. The shop boasts a large selection of chandelier lampshades. The 70 dealer booths blend into each other as you pass from Italian art deco night stands to sets of novelty glasses (Flinstones, Peanuts, Smurfs), then vintage beaded purses and oversized, overdone broaches.
User review by sheyenne – Well-kept menagerie....plenty of stuff and variety, not crowded. Lots of sale items and/or discounts, sometimes open for bargain. Lady storekeeper is very friendly.
The perfect candlesticks. . . – I was bemoaning the fact that I did not have a pair of low, silver candlesticks for Thanksgiving. Tall ones would interfere with the conversation and dining. I had heard about this place from a neighbor and decided to check it out. I walked in to the store this afternoon and saw the perfect pair of silver, art deco candlesticks in the first display case. It was fate. I bought them. Linda K.
