Products and Services:
We are an online antique and unique item store primarily using an auction format to sell our own finds as well as items on consignment.

Why did you decide to start this type of business?
Finding, researching, and restoring old and unusual items has been a passion since the late 1980’s. I am working to build a “retirement” career after my W2 one winds down.

What accomplishment are you most proud of?
I have been evolving for decades and am most proud of being a steward of the old mercantile store in town that first opened in 1916. The store building itself is mostly original to its founding more than a century ago.

What sets you apart from other businesses that people might support?
I am local and try to be fair to help people realize the most return from the sale of things antique and unique.

Do you have any other info you want to share?
We keep busy with W2 careers but strive to be a responsive as we can.
