We were looking for a consignment shop and happened across Ark. Proceeds benefit a local animal non-profit organization. The items on display were incredible...jewelry, fine china, oriental art, statuary, furniture...impeccably clean and organized. Two beautiful parrots keep the non-shoppers amused while others browse.

At last count, this nonprofit organization has helped over 60 different animal charities. A win-win, because the store's inventory is fabulous. You can purchase something wonderful and help animal causes at the same time. Don't miss the Chinese section -- porcelain, snuff bottles, jade, bronze, lacquer ware, wood carvings, cloisonne, etc. The silver serving pieces are magnificent. They also have... More

I was looking for something to do before my Segway tour and found this antique shop. It is really a thrift shop/consignment shop of high quality household items. The beneficiary of the "profits" is an animal shelter. The staff (all volunteers?) were very friendly and helpful. China, crystal and silver were often displayed on beautiful tables. Lots of beautiful things... More

By accident, I went into the shop, spent half day there, enjoying checking around variety of staff the carry. Each piece is unique. ARK Antique is definitely a place for people hunting unique staff.

If you love Animal Charities and Fine Asian Artifacts, Collectibles China, Antiques, Estate Jewelry and Expensive Furniture you won't be disappointed at The Arks meticulous selection of treasures. Plus you can feel good about the philanthropic contributions they make because of your impulse purchase of that bit-chin Vintage Bracelet and pair of Fu Dogs.

We go to the Ark Antiques on every visit to San Diego. It's a donation supported shop that benefits animal causes. Some of the best jewelry and art. Merchandise turns frequently. You never know what will be there. If you like antiques, must see.
