Excellent and eclectic selection of antiques! The building and stage alone is worth visiting! I've been coming here for many years and never knew this jewel was here.

This second-floor theatre has been converted into a variety of boutiques selling antiques, collectibles and junque. There is some old motion-picture equipment on display. The walk up the long staircase to the second floor may be difficult for some, particularly on a hot day in this non-AC building, and the lettering on the stair risers, denying the existence of a...

It needs a little TLC but don't let the exterior fool you ... go in! There are a lot of stories in those old floor boards. Re-purposed to an antique store/museum, this property is a "diamond in the rough". The stage area and the balcony opposite, are a step back in time. I hope they are able to restore this... More

Walking up the creaking old wooden stairs is like walking through a porthole in time. The old Opera House/Theater is full of treasures for sale from the past. The real value of a visit here is the architecture and history of the building. Visitors can walk up onto and behind the stage. Slow down, take a few minutes, and just... More

Well all of this area is filled with great antique stores and this is just one of them. Make sure and hit the ice cream shop and the cafe with the top hate host.

The opera house is an old 2nd floor theater. I think it is also called Bizarre Bazaar. Old equipment from the movie and stage theater is displayed, plus thousands of items. Even if you're not looking for anything and not prepared to die, this is a fun walk through.

Lots of antique stores on Oak street. I was enjoying shopping until the fact that too much coffee caught up to my bladder. A word of advice...don't ask to use any one of these stores restrooms. Surprisingly they don't have any, really.....that is the answer you'll get. I'm not sure what they do when nature calls. Don't ask in the... More

This is an easy place to pass by, it is on the second floor right in the middle of other stores. Look for it or ask anyone, it is really great. Tons of old stuff in so many rooms you will spend an hour or more browsing through them. Make sure to go up on the old stage to see... More
