Awesome store, and Lindsey is great! The place is sectioned by owners of goods, so all the different nooks have different styles and collections. The staff has put up a big plastic shield at the front desk for safety, and are taking proper precautions. Super friendly and carried my chair to my car. A good way to kill an afternoon! – Mike King

I really like this store. It’s curated, so it isn’t overwhelmingly cluttered like many antique stores. Always something interesting to look at. Prices seem generally reasonable to me. You probably won’t find something amazing for super cheap as you might in a typical thrift store, but you also won’t have to sift through piles and piles of things. – Allison Gee

This place is so beautiful. We can’t afford the items in this store but it will always be a special place for my wife and I. Aside from being a retail store for some of the most fascinating and eclectic antiques, it is also a wedding venue. There is ample parking and the staff is super nice and helpful. I recommend a visit! – Phung Nguyen
