There is no access to this store other than via stairs. Once you get to the top of the stairs, it is several rooms. Stuff is crammed everywhere. There is no organization to most rooms (which have been told are "booths" for vendors). It is...More

Could have spent hours there, from room to room looking at all the antic and interesting stuff they have, but we ran out of time. This is a great antic shop, with a lot of history. Definitely a must do when in Arcadia.

It's always a pleasure to visit the Opera House for the history and treasures. This isn't exactly the best place on Oak Street to find a really valuable Bonafide antique, but it's great for "junk" pickers that don't want to spend a lot of money....More

It looks like years ago someone shut down the theater, pushed a lot of thespian material against the wall and said" Hey ! Let's sell some stuff outta here". I love this place. it's an antique shop, an attraction and tour all in one place....More

Like most of Arcadia which has been repurposed to an antique heaven, so too has this early 1900 Opera House. The original stage is still in tact, on hand are the early film projectors with which 30s/40s movies were shown here, and original seats. Most...More

We thought we couldn't miss the opportunity to see the space rebuilt in 1906. It was full of a wide range of antiques and stuff. It lacked high quality items with mostly items of regular American Life--not a whole lot different than the 20 plus...More
