"what was this building before?"

 

We answer this question probably 10 times every day, and we never get tired of doing it. We are all still in awe that this place actually belongs to us and we are proud to celebrate the history of this magnificent building each and every day that we are open. When you enter the front door of the shop, we invite you to look around you at all of the amazing architectural details and appreciate the rich history of this antique building.

a brief timeline.

So to answer the question, it was built as a post office, lived for a while as a public library, and was then revived as the antique store that it is today. Through it's lives, this building has seen many changes, but our family has worked diligently to preserve all original features that remain and to restore what can be restored. We hope you love and appreciate it as much as we do!
