It's our FIFTEENTH SEASON! Open five days a week all summer long (every day but Tues/Wed). Described by Country Living magazine as "a love-at-first-sight wonderland of oddball collectibles, vintage clothing, and objects d'art," Mystery Spot Antiques is part store, part museum, part odditorium, and a whole lot of fun! Named for Homer & Langley, the infamous Collyer Brothers, this obsessive and artistic "Shrine to Clutter" is packed to the rafters with unusual antiques, tons of estate-fresh vintage clothing, 1,000's of used records & killer vinyl, found objects, mid-century lighting, out of print art books, and downright oddities such as the Creepy Doll Exhibit, Petey the Petrified Piranha, and Desdemona, the Devil Girl of Phoenicia. Heck, even when are doors aren't open, customers are welcome to dig through our dollar record bins and our famous yard sale in a box on the front porch, with an honor money drop at your service.

Mystery Spot has a little bit of everything, from antiques to mid-century tschokes, records, clothes, and a compelling Mystory Spot tshirt I really wanted, but they didn't have one in my size. Check it out after you have some pizza at Brio's.

Phoeniicia just full of surprises! And this is one of the reasons ...a little shop gearing towards making people happy.you have to go at least once just to see the smiles that come across the faces when they find something that reminds them of their childhood or a happy memory.

Enjoyed my visit. Nice selection of antiques (vintage clothes, photos, books, more). A must stop if you like vinyl records. Found the prices leaning to the high side. Worth a stop though.

A must for lovers of vintage clothing, music, antiques, ephemera amd curios. The owner curates this seven-room labor of love with an artist's eye, and just walking around the shop is like being in a wonderful time machine of popular and bygone culture. And did I mention the prices? Bargains in every room! Leave yourself time to wander, and by... More

This is quite the haven for the eccentric and the antique lover. With a very cluttered and divided layout, it can be very overstimulating and it can take a long time to browse properly. I didn't get a chance to look carefully as the place had too many opportunities for my toddlers to break something. The prices looked good though.

So much cool stuff to browse through at very reasonable prices-- and a GREAT Vinyl collection. Summer porch series concerts are a must see. On my last visit I left the proud owner of a great Mystery Spot Tee and a "Buffy" Paper Doll (Family Affair) "mini-star Anissa Jones's wardrobe of day-to-day fashions" book! For a friend.

The Mystery Spot is a unique antiques store, with vintage clothing, toys, shoes, household items, records, and more. As you comb through the many rooms, you never know exactly what you might find. Definitely worth a trip to Phoenicia!
