"Once Upon A Time"
Antiques & Collectibles
Hello, and welcome to our store, "Once Upon A Time Antiques & Collectibles", where you will find many wonderful one-of-a-kind antique and collectible items that my wife and I have acquired during our long and wonderful 40-year marriage.
Because we are nearing retirement and must downsize but have no one who appreciates these things to leave to, we have decided to sale and sell our antique and vintage collectible items on so that they may find new homes with someone who will appreciate them and take good care of them for the next 30, 40 or 50 years.
Thank you again for visiting our store. We hope you find something you like.
