Antique Emporium in Beaver Falls, PA

Upon entering the Antique Emporium, a lovely woman  invited me to have cool water, offered me a glass of wine, the use of the facilities AND there was a basket of free tomatoes.

 Obviously I was a a first-timer.  “You are welcome to take photographs. ” she said.      That was all I needed.

There are three floors and over 75 Dealers’ Booths of everything you can think of- and then some more things you didn’t  know existed in the world.

The “like items” are categorized and displayed together, so if you are into political buttons, license plates, or milk bottle collections you don’t have to dig through other stuff.  It is so organized and tidy.

Meet Jim.  If you are in need of a pun, the proprietor will help you out.

Here he is holding a business card that says “You’re worth a million to us.”

Be sure to have a nice chat with Jim.  As I said, he’s pretty puny.

  1. There was a restaurant we loved in San Diego that belonged back east. The guy had kitschy salt and pepper shakers on each table. He would have loved that display. It was brick-front, which you don’t see often out there. Little Italian joint.

  2. Now this is the kind of place I would love to see and explore. I went to one here in town a few months ago and it looked like a bunch of people cleaned out a closet and put the stuff on folding tables. I had expected to spend the morning there, at least, and, instead, I was in and out in about a half-hour. At your emporium, I would have spent at least that much time checking out the salt & pepper shakers, and I’m sure my chat with Jim would have taken some time, as well.

    • The organization of the place is attractive and inviting. There were actually other shelves of s and p in addition to what I posted. I’m sure Jim could write a book and decades of collecting and sorting and selling. Thanks John for your visit and comment today.

  3. Wow, this place looks incredible! I could spend hours and hours in there….. They seem like genuinely kind and friendly folks, too – that would make me feel good about spending money in their shop. 🙂
