One of many similar shops in a row! Lovely old home filled with china, glassware, furniture, vintage linens and doll all sold at low prices. Easy to browse, friendly atmosphere. Near other great antique shops like Junk Shop, all within walking distance.

Bright, clean shop. Great prices, good variety of items. I never go home empty handed. Got pottery and silverware. Furniture finds too but no room at home!

You'll never leave empty handed. Take a trip back in time as you walk through the delightfully decorated rooms. You will undoutedly find a treasure you can't leave behind. You will find also that the prices are reasonable.
