Without question, one of the best stocked, diverse and best organized antique stores I've ever experienced. Whether you're planning to buy or not, it's worth a stop here. Give yourself about an hour to see everything they've got.

Relive days gone by as you browse a small store absolutely packed with interesting antiques including advertising materials, tools, books, gadgets and toys of decades past. Make sure to refinance your home and get an equity loan before you go because they are exceedingly proud of their products and price it accordingly. You will also feel like a kid again... More

I made sure on my most recent visit to Sanibel. I made time to visit this place. Even if you are not a lover of antiques you will be amazed at this place. They have everything. I often spend most of my time at the beach and never seem to stop by well all of the vintage stuff was incredible.... More

This is by far, the most organized antique store we've ever shopped in. And I can't imagine what taking inventory there must be like with the incredible amount of items offered. You could probably spend the better part of the day there if you opened every little drawer that is legibly labeled with the contents. Usually stores with this much... More

This is a place you don't want to miss! True antiques...not replicas. Very very organized! The medical section had anatomy teaching posters that were amazing...you have to see them to appreciate! Musical instruments to repurpose or display as well! I will be staying in touch...looking for a trumpet with nice engraving and functional.

This place was overflowing with so many incredible antique treasures! There is something for everyone here, from vintage cameras to old photographs to records and little knickknacks. The prices were reasonable and the owner was incredibly gracious in terms of negotiating prices and making deals.

The shop had a lot of items, but it is a single dealer shop so it was very well organized and clean! I was looking for a few specific items for a couple of collections and they two gentlemen running the shop were very helpful. Not pushy, but actually helpful!

An organized antique store is unheard of but how nice to be able to search and compare all from one spot! It is a small building with a lot in it. Whatever is small enough to fit in a drawer is in one and you must take it to the front counter to look through it, which makes sense. The... More

We could have stayed for hours. This store has a lot to offer. Everything is sorted into categories which makes searching a lot easier. We were on our honeymoon and found trinkets from where we grew up. The women working was extremely friendly and willing talk to us for a few minutes about where we came from and what we... More

I found the most lovely antique, hand-painted door knobs there. Two matching sets! Bill (and I apologize if I've gotten your name wrong!) could tell that I was truly in love with them and would give them a loving home. Then, he helped me find a salt & pepper shaker set that were marked "Florida." I couldn't leave without purchasing... More
