Home Again Antiques at Old City Hall Shoppes

New line of dinnerware...Feed on the Word, mixes well with vintage glassware and china!

As some of you know, I used to have a storefront on the square...lately, I've had a few folks asking if I'm still in the business. Well, Home Again Antiques is still alive and well and living at Old City Hall Shoppes. I'm here almost every day...unless I'm out finding new treasures to fill the shop. If I'm not here, Bob or Jan will be here to help you.

Stop in and see us!

Globes, plant stands, railroad oil can, oil painting, and as always...old books

Old light fixture, which could be used for a light fixture, but also makes a great candle holder! Old book with charming cover.

This little bird has been making his nest with paper from old books right in the flowerpots!

Hand painted tea set, vintage teacups and saucers, and old portraits of Mr. and Mrs. Valentine

I used to think I didn't like orange or amber...but now I love it!

Going Up! The elevator is coming!

We are getting an elevator to make our building more accessible. The city owns the Old City Hall building and the attached firehouse. Recently they decided to put in an elevator to make the museums and shops easier for all to use. Thanks also goes to the Humiston Trust for their large donation.
The two buildings are connected on the upper level, but an open drive is between the two ...the elevator will go in this space.
I'm so excited about this project. Many times I have seen WWII vets come and not be able to see the war museum because they could not climb the stairs. Other times I have seen these men, some on oxygen, slowly climbing the steps and taking breaks to see the exhibits. If you haven't seen the museum, you really should visit. It's a very moving experience.

The elevator will also make our shoppes accessible as well as the upper level of the Route 66 Museum and the Campanelli photography exhibit in the old jail cells.
