My boyfriend and I recently visited this store and had so much fun! I love antique and bargain shopping so this place was perfect for us! Price range varied from expensive items to 2 dollars pieces but most everything in there is a bargain. There were some handmade gifts in there too. So cute! It’s the perfect place if you need to decorate your house or buy a gift for a friend.

My wife and I do a great amount of antiquing in the PA area and surrounding states & we have to say that this was one of the best shops we have been in. The staff(Kim & Co.) treated us so well, the selections are wonderful and the prices quite fair. Cannot wait to visit again in the spring.

Stopped in here on a trip south. The woman working the front desk was very friendly and explained how everything works. We had fun browsing through the antiques and it's nice that nobody pushes you for sales.

The prices were reasonable. We ended up buying a couple of small things. Recommended for a nice side trip.

Looking for something to do on the weekend, I found the Burlington NJ website. The historic district with over 40 historic sights included in a self-guided tour( or with a guide) along with the Antiques and Art Emporium seemed like a nice day out. The weather was gorgeous. It was a Sunday morning when we piled into the car for the 1hour & 20 min. drive. We arrived a half hour before the Emporium opened, so decided to walk around, find the historical society and check out the walking tour. Aaahhh! We parked the car directly in front of the Emporium, where what appeared to be a couple of homeless men were lounging. We saw some signs for the Historical Society and headed in that direction, on the way, passing what appeared to be a gang. On one side street there were 3 police cars with sirens blazing and several people and police officers in the street. People were gathered on the side walk watching the goings on. Finally found what we were looking for, but it is closed on Sunday. Rounding the corner we headed back toward the Emporium which was just opening. They were very friendly. The building is huge with tons of all sorts of items in different stalls arranged in rows. The prices were reasonable to high depending on the vendor. If you find yourself nearby, you may as well stop in, but otherwise, I can't recommend it. Its too far to go, with nothing else around it, for me.

By the outside, it appears your walking down an alley into a small store, but then you open the doors and a small warehouse awaits you. Dont be in a rush to walk around here, bring a cup of coffee and walk slowly to see everything. Its divided up into small areas by vendor. Then there are cases of smaller, delicate items. One of the best places in Burlington City to visit. This is located right across the street from the post office

I can't believe I've lived in Burlington most of my life and have never been here. A friend posted on Facebook that she was there so my son and I decided to check it out. I couldn't believe how HUGE it was. You could definitely spend hours in there. Staff was very friendly and we will definitely return someday soon.

Burlington NJ is a quirky city. It's been "up and coming" for the past few years, and now I think it's partially arrived. New restaurants, new bushiness and new hope seems to be here. The Antigue Emporium has been around for a while. It's tucked off the street, down a seasonally decorated ally. The actual building is quite amazing, featuring soaring wooden beams and a ton of space. When I first visited, I was stunned at the amount of dealers in there! Since I'm a local, I love to take friends there. They always find something fun to buy. When I go on vacation, we usually visit collectable coops. Here the prices are reasonable, and dealers are usually willing to haggle over the prices. The staff is friendly and informative, plus they set out quite a food bounty on the weekend. There is plenty of free parking beside the building plus now there are more great places to eat. Burlington is a historic river town, so visiting the emporium along with the historic sites would make a great day trip. If you enjoy shopping for collectibles and antiques, this is the place for you.

Stopped down in Burlington, NJ while headed to Mt. Holly. My GPS brought me across the Delaware River, then back over, and that was the shortest distance. This deceptive store front leads you to a massive (old) warehouse of Antiques, art and other goodies. These are not the "fine antiques" of some store, but an awful lot of thing to check out. These are booths of a variety of sellers. One huge display cabinet from many sellers. I would doubt it has air in the summer. There is a decent restroom and the entire place is nice and clean. An awful lot of items from vintage to true antiques. Pricing is good, some better, some are up there. Again it's from a variety of sellers, so they set the price. Not sure if the prices are rock solid.

Something for every decorating or collecting taste and budget. Browse and shop in an unhurried atmosphere with knowledgeable assistance when you need it. It's not formal and stuffy; you can explore and enjoy. We stop in often as the merchandise and displays are frequently changing.
