The collection of art deco lighting is the best I've ever seen. It's a fun store to explore, with lots of antique furniture and interesting things for sale.

First floor is vintage home decor, particularly focusing on hardware (brass doorknobs, back plates, etc). The upstairs is a free museum that the owner has collected over the years and shares for free. Great place to visit!

Downstairs is a retail showroom together with a large part of the upstairs. But in the upper right corner is tucked this delightful museum. It’s filled with lovely displays of deco treasures. It is free and only takes a few minutes to visit.

The Kelly Art Deco Light Museum looks like your great-grandmother's closet threw up. It's two stories with vintage items for sale on the first floor, while the second floor is the actual museum with large items (tables, wardrobes) for sale. It's interesting, but not necessarily...More
