Nice store with lots of inventory to look at. I found the staff to be approachable and they did answer some questions I had. As other reviewers suggest, they are on the pricey side...however I'm not sure why this gets people all upset. Buy it or don't, but don't be mad how it got priced. You paid $6 to use... More

Nice stop if you have an hour to browse. Well organized and when I asked for a particular item, the shop keeper had 1 and knew exactly where it was. If I had a larger suitcase, I would have purchased more items!

Lots of vintage items, well organized but a bit messy and over priced for my needs. I love antique shopping but most items felt more flea market quality. Worth visiting you never know what you may find.

This is a great place to go if you are not a serious collector. They are very organized, have lots to look at and many rooms full of history. There are a lot of glass cases so it was a little hard to see everything. The prices were high but again if you are just there to look, it was... More

If you like antique shops, you'll like this place. TONS of merchandise and pretty well organized. But if you want to examine something, that's another story. Much of the merchandise is behind locked cases, and several things are in boxes. The boxes say DO NOT OPEN! or DON'T OPEN, READ THE TAG! And of course photos are prohibited. And yes,... More

This eclectic shop on Sanibel Island is packed to the ceiling with all types of collectibles. You have to walk though it several times to take in everything they have. Prices are high, but haggling is permitted. There is something for every collector at this shop. A must see when you visit Sanibel Island.

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
