Congratulations to Lost City Antiques for celebrating their grand opening Wednesday, November 19, 2014 at 5:30pm! You’re invited to join them in celebrating this exciting event — ribbon cutting, free drawings, food & beverages to be served!
Lost City Antiques is located at 1519 Park Street and run by owner David George along with over 20 dealers/vendors. Some of the vendors are well-established and have been there for more than 15 years.
The stately brick building that houses Lost City Antiques has been used as an antique store under several different ownerships for the past 30 years (including Park Street Antiques). But the building itself is much older than that – it was built in 1897, most likely as a mercantile.
Today, the immense building showcases three levels packed with an amazing assortment of antiques, collectibles, and vintage clothing:
The Main Floor contains a large number of glass display cases that hold every collector’s favorites, from an extensive assortment of vintage jewelry and pocket watches to a collection of ephemera and other bric-a-brac. You can stroll down the aisles and open spaces throughout the floor to find antique lighting and furniture from the Victorian, Art Deco, Mid-Century, and Arts & Crafts eras. There are a number of rooms and alcoves that also feature assortments of old tools, classic bikes, vintage clocks, and much more. In addition, you might find Italian and French collectibles alongside an assortment of other collections — from tea cups, vintage magazines, and kitchenware, to kitsch and tiki items from the 50s onward. Lost City even has a book room!
The Upper Floor is where you will find a huge selection of clothes and accessories, including vintage and contemporary styles. Whether you are looking for something from the Victorian era, the roaring 20s, WWII, or a piece of Hawaiian clothing for your next party, you will be sure to find it on the upper floor. Along with the wide variety of clothing, you will find a variety of shoes, hats and accessories to accent any outfit you have in mind. There is even a collection of vintage clothing for children!
