  • We love looking at antiques. This happens to be an old elementary school which serves as a great antique store. It didn't smell old and they were using the old PA system for soft music throughout the building. (Love it) It's so big we weren't able to go visit any other antique stores and truely weren't able to se everything here..... We give it a three thumbs up. If you are into antiques we recommend a full day here!
  • We loved this place! We were in the area and decided to visit, but we had to come back the next day again! This place was amazing! They have room after room of antiques, collectibles, furniture and art work. Trust me… Go early because you’re gonna want to spend a lot of time there.
