Loved looking at the large variety of antiques displayed in a well organized, but very crowded area with narrow rows. Lots of locked glass cases chock full of small items, but clerk didn't seem to mind opening them when we wanted to look at an item. Did make a couple purchases and would have liked to buy more but prices... More

Not a shop for fancy Hepplewhite dressers or Victorian porcelain, but where to go if you love to spend an hour or more exploring aisles and cases chock full of interesting and unusual antique goodies. There are drawers full of doodads, and rooms full of fun. I stop in once a year to see what might be new. (Er, old)... More

Went about an hour out of our way to go here. We were told by an unfriendly clerk that they did not have a restroom. We had been driving awhile so we said well I guess we will go. Clerk did not seem to care. In my opinion if you cannot have a proper restroom for your customers then you... More

Stop in and visit this amazing collection of antiques, where you can easily spend a few hours inspecting many varied items. This store has been on Sanibel for a very long time, and has a considerable variety of items, too numerous to adequately describe. But check it out and enjoy - you will not be disappointed!

What a trip! Next time I'll bring the family for a great time of old fashioned fun. Can't wait to see if the Farmers Market gets bigger over the next few years.

Don't be fooled by the exterior of Islander Trading Post, because inside is where the real magic happens. Housed in wooden antique and vintage display cases and shelves is an enormous eclectic collection of antique and vintage pieces. Although there is a lot to see, it's very well organized by cagtegory. A must stop on Sanibel even on a sunny... More

Islander Trading Post Antiques has everything you are looking for and more that you didn't even know you wanted! It is a little claustrophobic, but really amazing. We browsed for about an hour. The clerk was friendly and helpful.

My husband insisted we stop and take a look. I was amazed at the array of different things in the shop and the sheer quantity of stuff packed into every nook and cranny. There is definitely something there that will interest everyone, even if you don't buy, it is fun to look around. The prices are a little high, but... More
