Travelled 30 minutes from Beverly Hills to visit this Antique Center. It had quite a bit of square footage and a lot of items, but nothing that I considered "special" or "worth" traveling for. Still fun to visit and view all of the items. Not many high-end antiques.

This was a pretty nice antique mall with many individual vendors. Lots to look at and some good prices. The parking lot is pretty small so you might have to park elsewhere and hike back. There were three levels plus a basement. We didn't spend too much time in the basement area due to a very foul smell down there!

This is 3 floors of everything from old American Neon signs and garage stuff, toys, clothes, furniture, cutlery... hey just about everything on 3 floors in a huge environment. If you like these places allow yourself 3 hours.

To give you an idea I bought an unused and still boxed 1980's Tonka toy, a lit beer sign, 2 clear 1980's telephones for the wall, an old LP and ten pin bowling pin.

Chuck, the owner, is a lovely guy and Eddie and Antonio deserve a shout out too for being super helpful.

Next door is a thrift store where I got a load more LP's and some vintage T-shirts.

Great stuff.

King Richards is very large, kept clean with over all good prices; while I have not found any bargains there I have bought things there for a good if not fantastic price. There is a wide range here, furniture, jewelry, clothing and housewares, toys and weird old stuff from past ears. There was a wonderful Disneyland tour cart that would have made a great poolside bar, but it had been sold. There is a small Betty Page store as well with a selection of current styles, so even if they don't have your size you can take a look before you order. Items are clean and mended, the 'antique store smell' is at a minimum save in the very small basement. Give the restaurant a miss or look it over closely, last time I was there is was a very nice family running it, they had just moved up from Mexico, but their style of cooking did not match my preference for the yummy foods from south of the border.
