The best antique store in Northern Delaware according to Delaware Today, and I agree! Just tons of rooms full of vinyl music, books, curiosities, toys, comic books, action figures, antiques, primitives, oddities, and other collectibles. I have been buying gifts for my family from there for years. You never know what you'll find each trip. In one room they have vinyl LPs and rock collectibles, in another they have a great set of Mid-Century Modern furniture and accessories (minus a great floor to ceiling lamp that made my wife's Christmas this year). Another room has antique hardware like knobs and handles to redecorate furniture with. In another there are works from a local artist. There is locally made and antique jewelry, lots of clothes, there is essentially a small toy store and kids book room with lots of superhero stuff, there is a good-sized collection of uranium glass, and last I saw, they even have a full-sized merry go round horse! Some tips: Try to look online for the schedule for their sales and events such as on-site appraisors and experts on-site. There are discounts for cash purchases over a certain amount on most items. They are kid-friendly, and well-behaved youngsters can pick from baskets of treats on the way out. Fun tip for the kids, the music room has rows and rows of bins full of little inexpensive toys they can browse through to keep their attention while you're shopping, and the owners don't mind at all if they sit and read kids books or browse through the comics in the toy room. It can get crowded, so weekdays are the best time to have lots of elbow room and questions answered. As of today, they're open every day but Tuesday. For comic book fans looking for a great sales-tax-free comic hunting day trip, they are a short 5 minute drive from two other shops that sell comics and also have great customer service, The Comic Book Shop on Marsh Rd, and Between Books 2.0 also on Marsh Rd. inside the Oddporium. They're also a short 10 minute trip from two nearby PA comic shops in Boothwyn (Cult Fiction Comics), and EE Comics and Games (only open Fridays and Saturdays).
Very cool store! Definitely check it out if you’re in the area! Staff is not pushy at all and very friendly.
Really large shop with tons of different vendors selling everything from toys, to clothing, furniture, and Knick knacks. There’s really something for everyone in this shop.
I love this Vintage/Antique booth rental spot! Each Venders booth is unique in its own way, providing tons of different selections. I promise that you will not be disappointed nor will you be able to leave this little hidden gem empty handed. 🙂
Great store with many finds you wouldn't expect. Give yourself time to go thru the entire store, took me over an hour & was a pleasant shopping experience. Friendly staff, offering discounts when paying in cash. I will be back monthly that's for sure. Don't miss out on this shop, so worth it.
