I really enjoy a good antique shop, but this place was disorganized and a big pile of junk. Good luck finding anything in this mess.

One of my favorite places in Gonzales. The gentleman is kind and fair with his prices. He has a little bit of everything and a lot of character. Whether you want a keepsake, a gift, or simply to look around, I would suggest this as...More

This is an old smelly building. Very dark and crowded, hard to get around. Over priced on most of the junk inside this place.

I love and respect antique stores but it is nice when merchandise is on display for sale and not mounded up to the ceiling in junk piles for storage in areas you can't get to. It does have it's charm in comparison of perhaps rooting...More

This is your place. There's so much stuff in there that the owner has no idea of all his inventory. Great place for "pickers".

On a recent trip we stopped to check out the Emporium - interesting. Rows and rows of stuff piled high and deep. Very dusty - watch where you walk - not recommended for small children - they may get lost. Looked like items stacked from...More

This old two-story building is like a museum where everything is for sale, but it is an antique store. The prices are real good, and negotiable. There is a bit of everything...for example, if you want an antique hand-cranked meat grinder, there were about 20-25...More
