This is such an interesting place to visit - almost like visiting a museum! This antique store is housed in a bright yellow building, which is made up of many little shops inside. That's what makes it charming and attractive, in my opinion. I like that there are many vendors, and their shops and varied decor are what give it... More

I saw very few antiques. Many items were quite overprised in my book. This is a swap meat type place. One good note was a small dealer on the 2nd floor who had some nice newer civil war reprint books.

Enjoyed walking through this antique store with my son. A great place to find those special treasures you are looking for. My son and I both bought something. One of the better organized antique stores I have been to.

This place is huge and is packed wall to wall with various items ranging in price. Don't let the outside appearance fool you, there's something here for just about everybody. Solid way to relax for a few hours.

I learned more about George Washington in 2 days than I had learned all of my life. You always knew about the Revolutionary War and The Presidency but the man behind all of this and his business ventures was always unknown to me. The house and the grounds are beautiful. The museum was awesome. It had been 30 years since... More

It is a warehouse-size building which contains several independent sellers of everything from furniture to small household items to jewelry. Plan to spend a couple of hours browsing, for us the hardest part is not buying things that you know you don't really need but really want. The mid-century modern furniture vendors always have great pieces at great prices which... More

Great place to spend some time browsing. My husband and I stopped in after he picked me up from the airport. Normally we walk around Old Towne but it was just too darn cold so found this place. It was clean, plenty of parking available, lots of different vendors and a wonderful variety of interests and prices. We did not... More
