This place has items identical to some that I have inherited from my family and some things I have never seen before. It is a cross between a museum and an antique shop. And you can also purchase things.

I was a little scared off by some of the pictures, but I'm really glad that I went. This place is a treasure grove of antiques. I found some really cool fines and would have walked away with a lot more if I could have...More

We were in the area looking for some unique things for the house, and found this place online. When they say "uncommon", they do mean "uncommon". The place was beautifully decorated, there's a lot of cool looking antiques but they were too expensive for me.

I absolutely love this store. They truly have some unique finds and stray away from tacky knick knacks. The set up of the store brings you in without getting you too lost (unlike a lot of antique malls). I could easily spend an afternoon here.

This place is just as weird as it promises to be. There are extremely unique items, including a gaggle of taxidermy animals dressed and styled like dolls. Everything was really pricey so we weren't able to purchase anything, but it was fun to look. Staff...More
