A tradition and appreciation of antiques and collectibles is passed down from generation to generation. Collecting is either in your blood or it isn’t.
Our history started with a race to the ice cream truck in the 1950’s. Unlike most customers who ran for a chance to taste their delicacies on a hot summer day, our family’s race started at night, when the ice cream man would stop by and drop of his bag of coins, trusting us to keep his money safe and allowing us to search for sought after coins for our collections. Hours would be spent combing through the bag, finding dates and mint marks needed to plug holes in collections.
As many of you who read this know all too well, often times a passion for collecting doesn’t end with just one category. It spreads like wildfire as interests change, time passes, and one day you realize you’ve collected almost every type of category of collectibles. Some interests stay with you, some transition or get put on hold, but that deep seated desire to collect is something that remains.
The exact moment when our transition from collector to dealer happened is unclear, perhaps it started early when we would trade our ‘dups’ for coins we needed or the weekends we spent at shows or swap meets. What we can tell you is our passion for collecting started early and has been passed down from generation to generation and our history is what makes us who we are today.
As you can see by our inventory, our interests have expanded from coins to a wide range of other collectibles and antiques. Our offerings reflect our goal to provide an ever changing inventory ranging from beginner collectibles, to rarities pursued by the most advanced and selective collector.
