Very much worth a visit to this building, the “not for sale” memorabilia is very interesting as is the stage area. The “antiques” are very over priced, but I’d still recommend a visit.

Let’s face it, people are just not as into antiques anymore- we noticed a lot less stuff in the Opera House- still worth a visit if you like antiques!

This is an old Opera house building from 1906. It is quite a climb up the stairs and you can see the original stage. There are several dealers with all types of antiques and collectibles. Can find most anything - some areas are more well...More

There is no access to this store other than via stairs. Once you get to the top of the stairs, it is several rooms. Stuff is crammed everywhere. There is no organization to most rooms (which have been told are "booths" for vendors). It is...More

Could have spent hours there, from room to room looking at all the antic and interesting stuff they have, but we ran out of time. This is a great antic shop, with a lot of history. Definitely a must do when in Arcadia.

It's always a pleasure to visit the Opera House for the history and treasures. This isn't exactly the best place on Oak Street to find a really valuable Bonafide antique, but it's great for "junk" pickers that don't want to spend a lot of money....More

It was an interesting visit in an old opera house. I wondered what it was like in it's heyday. A mix of art available for sale, clothing, and assorted items to look at in the rooms mixed in with local items of interest. I did...More

It looks like years ago someone shut down the theater, pushed a lot of thespian material against the wall and said" Hey ! Let's sell some stuff outta here". I love this place. it's an antique shop, an attraction and tour all in one place....More
