Founded by Douglas Quigley and Curtis Peck in 1992. We are located in the fabulous Walker's Point neighborhood.
Walker's Point is a neighborhood that lies south of the Third Ward and the eastern part of the Menomonee River Valley. Founded by George H. Walker in 1835 as a fur trading post, the area is now noted for being mostly an industrial neighborhood, with limited housing scattered in pockets throughout the area, particularly on the eastern end of Walker's Point.
These two stores anchor the only historically intact block that is left of Milwaukee's South First Street, or Clinton Street as it was called prior to 1930. Walkers Point has been listed
in the New York Times as one of five foody neighborhoods of mention in the country. With nationally renowned chefs opening restaurants in this neighborhood such as Braise, Circa 1880, Chez Jacques, Purple Door Ice Cream, Blue Jackets, and the list goes on. Walkers Point is now bursting at the seams with new high rise, high rent apartments being built on First Street and condominiums/apartments being renovated on Second Street. So after an exciting day of treasure hunting at these stores there are plenty of places to choose from to have a sandwich or drink.

It is common practice to define "antique" as applying to objects at least 100 years old, although cars are considered antiques after 25 years. Antiques are usually objects that show some degree of craftsmanship—or a certain attention to design, such as a desk or an early automobile.
