This is a great family attraction. A mix of shopping, restaurants, museum, local handmade items, flea market outside, life sized restored cars, planes, trains, and tractors. Great family fun

We went to the old location to find out they moved. The new place is half the size of the old one. Located in an old school. We walked through the place in about a half hour. I was very disappointed. Would not go back.

This antique mall was once originally located on US441 in a huge building with, literally, something for everyone. The "antique " section had all manner of strangely wonderful "gotta-haves". During our annual visit to the area my wife and I hauled wagon-loads of stuff home...More

This place was very cool...lots of old antiques and a nice restaurant inside. Lots of nice furniture and other cute shops. But unfortunately, it is all being demolished and replaced with something else...that's kind of sad.

We walked into this antique mall at 11:00 am and did not leave until 5:00 pm. We barely scratched the surface! There must be over 50,000 sq. feet of antiques ranging from furniture, to jewelry to old tools. If you can think of it, it...More

An over priced antique mall with elevator music. Boring! You can find the same things cheeper everywhere else! Don't bother!

What fun! TONS of antiques. Reasonable prices. Museum items, refreshments, relaxing seating for those who need to take a break from the feast for the eyes. I would not recommend taking young children if you really want to shop.

The equipment displays outside is just the beginning of what you will find inside. A huge, unique collection of antiques and collectibles under one roof. Bring your camera!
