There is something for everyone. Three floors of all kinds of items.
I don’t need a single thing and yet I enjoy looking.
Instead, I should be signing up for the attic or basement clean-outs offered.
My friend and I were driving back from the yarn store. I was stocking up for the winter.
We’d seen this colorful place on the way out to Sewickley and made a stop on the way back.
The huge ornament is from Kaufmann’s Department Store Santa Land and the giant cage belonged to Mrs. Kaufmann’s tropical bird (which outlived her)
Bill the owner told us the story about the bird and the ornament and you can see how this scene caught our eye as we drove by.
Too bad I didn’t have this photo for the WPC Ornate- Kaufmann’s Christmas Tree
Not sure if bride dolls are still manufactured but they were popular at one time.
I bought a handkerchief. Has a little nursery rhyme in the middle. Another post just for it another day.
So free consultations for Estate Sales, on site and home appraisals, a licensed precious metal dealer,
if you need a cleanout of attic, basement and or garage or need to rent props for a movie or a play
William Cox is the owner. 4331 Ohio River Blvd. (right near where you turn to go to Bellevue)

After my 11 o’clock appointment, J and I headed for Bellevue. Who knew that tomorrow is the start of their 4 day long Summer Solstice Spectacular. You can click here for the details We grabbed a quick bite at Joe’s Rusty Nail, an ice cream scoop of chicken salad on greens, some mandarin oranges and strawberries with balsamic and a blueberry muffin. A tall glass of ice tea. Cash or check, no cards. We walked down the block to a place we had driven by. Joyce’s Antique Emporium at 494 Lincoln Avenue in the heart of downtown. Oh my. We could have spent hours there, everything so carefully arranged and classified. Things you might have had as a kid or your mom had or the neighbors or your grandmother. I’m still thinking about the set of Pyrex bowls I left there and am thinking about going back if they are still there. Afterwards we stopped by the Farmer’s Market booths and I bought some strawberries that I made into jam when I got home- Joy of Cooking recipe. There was a shaved ice vendor. J bought the perennial Bloodroot to plant in her wonderful garden. We had fun checking out the antiques store with EVERYTHING. The Pickers Show on the History Channel needs to come and do an episode from this place. I am serious. We had the nicest conversation with the man minding the place and he was knowledgeable and full of great stories about the items in the store! The aluminum glasses on a blue coffee table outside the store caught our interest and we couldn’t get over the variety of items displayed. Canisters Depression glass, Kewpie Dolls, Betty Boop, swizzle sticks, an accordion, bugle, toys etc etc etc….See the slide show below. Call them at (412) 761-1288.
