Three stories of antiques of all kinds. You will find almost everything here most of it has a high price if you are willing to pay it. The staff is friendly and helpful.

This is just like any other antique shop. The dealers think they have gold and set the highest price they can think of. The place is nice, and people are very friendly. If you are looking for deals or great prices, this is not the place. If you are looking for an item and are willing to pay top dollar,... More

Drove a couple hours out of my way to visit this place. I was sorely disappointed. Way overpriced and mostly shabby, not antiques. Never going back.

Been here several times when visiting. For those who think its "grossly overpriced" remember this is not a thrift store or garage sale. Also keep in mind the store does not price these items the vendors themselves do. I always ask for a discount and usually receive 10% right off the top at antique malls and the vendors sometimes build... More

It was a cool place to browse, but prices were outrageous! I purchased a few records that were decently priced. There was no one to help with any questions on the lower level. I would take my grandmother there just to look around, but not to make purchases. It's more like a museum than a shop.

My wife "dragged" me here to look around and I was pleasantly surprised and how much fun it was to browse around. I noticed another review that said that the prices are too high but it should be noted that there seems to not be one owner of all the items but rather many different merchants who rent space. My...

This place had a few gems but overall it wasn't worth it. It seemed like the merchants/staff were trying to take advantage of the customers' assumed lack of knowledge. Most of the items were ridiculously overpriced (actually laughably so) and I eventually just started feeling almost offended. I'm talking $40 nondescript glass bottle, $65 SMALL bear fur purse with several... More

Three stories of great stuff! The big historic brick building was renovated from the ground up by CFC a few years back, and has recently re-opened under new management. Friendly staff; lots of unusual stuff. A definite five-star attraction!!!
