Antique Store · Hidden Gem · Shopping
The Olde Engine Works is currently celebrating its 24th year as an antique and collectibles co-op. We opened in April 1993 with only 14 dealers and we've grown steadily ever since. Today we are proud to have over 80 friendly dealers displaying a wide variety of unique items. Prices range from less than a dollar to many thousands, and our dealers are always on hand to answer questions and help you in any way possible. Our inventory changes every day since dealers are always bringing in different items and fortunately items are selling every day.

Our building has become a prime attraction in the minds of our customers. Prior to its present use, Olde Engine Works Market Place was a machine shop which began operating in 1903. In the early years they built large steam powered hoists that were used for bridge building, quarrying and many other heavy industry applications. During WWII, they built hoists that were used to load and unload the Liberty Ships.

After the war the principal operation developed into building winches for Shrimp Boats. These hoists are used to pull in the nets and you will find Stroudsburg Engine Works hoists on boats all over the world. For many years, if you built a shrimp boat, you put a Stroudsburg Hoist on it! Winch production ended in 1989 and the business continued as a machine shop until November 1992.

  • Not your typical Antique place. Lot of unique stuff at good prices. Worth the visit. Friendly staff as well.  more »
  • We really enjoy our visits here....there are alot of stalls and they don't have alot of crafty stuff. The only drawback is once we were here when it was 90 degrees outside and it was unbearable...  more »
  • Amazing facility. Some items may be a little pricey but there are many items there reasonably priced and there are selections for people of all interests. There is a backroom for furniture and it is absolutely gorgeous, quality goods. There are also some great deals and many items can be found for better quality for a lower price than the new factory made counterpart
  • If you like antiques then you really have to stop by - first off the place is huge. Second off, it's great stuff. You know what I'm talking about: there are antique shops which have mostly junk and then there are stops with junque. This is the latter. And did I say it's huge. The building itself is beautiful - an old industrial factory, with some of the machinery still there.
