Reading these reviews it seems people either love or hate this place. I'm not an antique lover. My friend and I like to thrift store shop and sometimes come here when looking for a specific item. I like thrift store prices not antique prices. She...More

Sometimes you can find something good here. Just have to hunt. A bunch of antique's are really over priced. Just know what you are looking for and do your homework. Not a place to take small children. So much to break so leave kids with...More

I'm not much of a shopper, especially when traveling, but I do like to take something back with me as a trip reminder. This is so much more satisfying than a souvenir shop. For one, it's mostly local fare. Second, it may carry future value...More

Our trips to Carlsbad would not be complete without visiting this large collection of vintage memorabilia. It seems to us that vendors rent space and the clerks handle transactions on their behalf. As we wandered around, we could see evidence of how the different vendors...More
