I went there yesterday with my girlfriend who is black. They followed her around and made comments suggesting she was going to steal their rummage sale rejects. What a bunch of backwards ignorant fools!

I am one of the 7 family members that had the chance to visit Philadelphia "THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE" and Antiquarians Delight. I' m a long time retailer/buyer as is my niece, whom we were visiting, and pride ourselves on our stores customer service and upbeat environments and would never, ever treat a single customer or POTENTIAL customer the way the "FUR COAT MAN" treated my family and I from the second we stepped into the store. We are all adults, enjoyed browsing the many nostalgic items within in each vendors booth and even struck up conversations with a few of the vendors. To have this man make a comment behind our backs within earshot about "I HOPE YOU LOCKED YOUR CASES" to his fellow vendors was rude to start, but for him to make the comment about the "8 of us not making a single purchase and we touched everything in the store and knowing it the moment we stepped in the door we wouldn't buy anything " was unprofessional and beyond belief. Never, ever would I, nor my staff make such a ridiculous comment to a single person that stepped into our door. Sadly, the downstairs vendor lost potentially 8 customers as we walked out of the store after giving "Fur Coat Man" our piece of mind. Here's to you, you idiot! Bad news travels faster than good. Get a change of life...somewhere in a cave.
Pros: Selections
Cons: Fur Coat Man....nasty!!!

I am also one of the 7 other family members who visited the Antiquarian's Delight. While visiting my daughter, a long time Philly resident and retail manager, we were excited to visit what was heard to be an amazing antique establishment. We were met by a pleasant vendor at the very front of the store (pink hair) who made us feel welcomed and wanted to make sure we knew that there were many individual vendors within the building who would be happy to answer any questions that we may have. Once we stepped past that pleasant woman, the atmosphere changed. We were given to once over by a very sour faced man on the right front side of the store. As we passed, we overheard him say to the other vendors nearby that he hoped they locked their cases. I brushed it off thinking that perhaps they had the cases opened for customers prior to our arrival and he was just giving them a reminder. Our family, all adults ages 26 through 71, proceeded to walk around looking at all of the various items they had to offer - jewelry, furniture, pictures, vintage clothing etc. It truly is a potpourri of wonderful items. After seeing what the first floor had, we decided to go to the lower level while keeping in mind the items that we may want to return to the first floor to purchase. I was the last family member to walk past the irritable man towards the steps to the lower level as he was counting how many people we had in our party. He asked me how many we were and I turned to him, smiled and said 8, as I too counted to make sure we didn??t leave anyone behind. That??s when this man verbally attacked me as he yelled behind my back ??Eight people in your party and you didn??t buy a thing. You touched everything in the store and didn??t buy anything. I knew it as soon as I saw you walk in the door?. I was so stunned by what he had said that I turned around to ask him to repeat himself. He once again said, ??I knew as soon as I looked at all of you that you were not going to buy anything.? I responded, ??We aren??t finished shopping yet, but we are now!!? My other family members were also so insulted that they exchanged words with him to let him know how rude and unprofessional he was. We went about our day shopping at other establishments in the area with vendors who were genuinely happy to have us in their stores. Some we purchased from, some we did not but we always felt welcomed no matter what. We were sure to thank them for having us in their stores while mentioning how poorly we were treated at Antiquarian's Delight. They too were shocked at such treatment.
The real disservice from this encounter at Antiquarian??s Delight was to the other vendors in the building. Because of his unprofessional treatment, none of us will ever return and I am certain the other shoppers that witnessed the incident feel the same way. He should be removed from the establishment. If he has ownership in the place, the other vendors should find a new place to set up shop.
Words of wisdom to the unprofessional, rude and irritable man:
Word of mouth is worth more than any purchased advertising can give. Unfortunately, this has caused all of us to promote this establishment in a negative light.
Think before you speak and NEVER bite the hands that feed you!
RUDE! RUDE! RUDE!

I am also another family member that was harassed by the evil man that works here. Let me just say that I have never in my life been treated the was we were treated in this store. There were (2) very pleasant young women working at the counters (the one with pink especially). This man followed us around as if we were a bunch of thieves and wispering to the other employees to make sure the cases are locked? Seriously? My purse is worth more than his weekly salary and he thinks we are going to steel his over priced junk? The first thing he said when we walked in was DON'T TOUCH THE FURS! Now why in the World would I want to touch the mangey furs he was trying to sell on a 100 degree day? The sadest part was that we were walking down the stairs to continue shopping and he ran us out of the store wit his verbally discriminating comments. "I called that as soon as you walked through the door"? What is that supposed to mean? We are all well dress, intelligent women so I am not sure what gave him that idea. The young ladies behind the countere were mortified by his outburst and the remaining customers jaws hit the floor. I will never ever step foot in this place again which is a shame because I love antique shopping. This place will go out of business with him working there. Vendors and Buyers Beware!!!!

I am one of the 7 family members that had the chance to visit Philadelphia "THE CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE" and Antiquarians Delight. I' m a long time retailer/buyer as is my niece, whom we were visiting, and pride ourselves on our stores customer service and upbeat environments and would never, ever treat a single customer or POTENTIAL customer the way the "FUR COAT MAN" treated my family and I from the second we stepped into the store. We are all adults, enjoyed browsing the many nostalgic items within in each vendors booth and even struck up conversations with a few of the vendors. To have this man make a comment behind our backs within earshot about "I HOPE YOU LOCKED YOUR CASES" to his fellow vendors was rude to start, but for him to make the comment about the "8 of us not making a single purchase and we touched everything in the store and knowing it the moment we stepped in the door we wouldn't buy anything " was unprofessional and beyond belief. Never, ever would I, nor my staff make such a ridiculous comment to a single person that stepped into our door. Sadly, the downstairs vendor lost potentially 8 customers as we walked out of the store after giving "Fur Coat Man" our piece of mind. Here's to you, you idiot! Bad news travels faster than good. Get a change of life...somewhere in a cave.

DO NOT GO!!!!! Over the past 11 years while living in Philadelphia I have been to the Antiquarian??s Delight about a dozen times?many times leaving with a nice item or two?.and many times empty handed. Overall, there is always lots to see.
Today I have made the decision to NEVER GO BACK!!!!! While my family was visiting Phillly I took all 7 members of them to one of my favorite shopping places (Antiquarian??s Delight), where we all looked and talked with various vendors on the top floor for approx. 20 minutes?on the way to the basement section of the mall?one of the vendors began counting the people in my family?.???? Then he said : ??how many are there????eight????and you didn??t buy a thing?

He then proceeded to say??I knew that the moment you all walked in the door you wouldn??t buy a thing?

Needless to say?.we left?I was humiliated...and my family was more than offended. Especially since we weren??t finished shopping when he made the comment.
So I write this review to warn all shoppers that your business is not appreciated?.and looking is not allowed.

The WORST service of my life.

The Antiquarian is nostalgia at its best, walking in it is colorful and exciting, take your time browsing because there are hidden treasures everywhere.
It is pricey but some pieces are worth it. Do not be hasty though because most vendors will bargain.
And as far as the vendors go, most are friendly and helpful but I did run into one extremely rude and snobby lady, which was a big turn off.
It is hard to miss if you know what you are looking for, it is a big old church.
It is open every day but on Saturdays and Sundays the basement is open as well for more shopping.

If you get the chance please check out Wilbur Vintage in the basement of the Antiquarian. He sells vintage and designer clothing for reasonable prices. Every first friday of the month he offers and 10% discount and a glass or two of wine. I love this quaint shop!

I always love coming to the Antiquarium....but I am loving it even more now that WILBUR (a sweet new vintage store) has opened in the basement. The prices are great, and the owner will help you pick just the right thing. The little stall feels cozy ...everywhere you look is a carefully placed treasure. Don't miss this place! Just what the Antiquarium (and my closet) needed.

Check out the new space, WILBUR, downstairs at the Antiquarian! The guy sells new and vintage clothes at a reasonable price. The space is colorful and artfully arranged in a cluttered way. Wilbur also does consignment! A fun shopping experience.

The manager is very disrespectful and yells at customers. They also do not take care of their items. I'd not recommend this place to anyone. There are other antiques places in the area; please go there.

On 11/4/06 I had the most terrible experience shopping for antiques at the Antiquarians Delight. Please beware of rip offs, a lot of the stuff is really flimsy there. And the manager has some issues. A 130 year old table that I had bought, was broken by THEM within seconds of the payment. When I asked for my money back, the manager yelled "SUE ME" and locked himself in the room! He not only refused to fully reimburse me, he also refused to give me the receipt! There were at least twenty to thirty people who witnessed the manager of this place screaming at us. The people who work there cannot say anything against him because he communicates by yells only. Please don't trust him and certainly don't buy anything from this place.

PROS: None
CONS: Abusive language, rip offs, psychotic manager

On 11/4/06 I had the most terrible experience shopping for antiques at the Antiquarians Delight. Please beware of rip offs, a lot of the stuff is really flimsy there. And the manager has some issues.

Avoid the man who answers the phone and owns the shopping area on the right when you walk in the door. This man is miserable, angry and he will convince you to leave and never return. Get passed him and you will have a lovely time in this unique shopping environment where you are sure to find many, one of a kind treasures and much nicer people. A recent telephone call to the store ended with this man screaming at me and telling me to go f myself. Apparently I called when they were too busy to answer my inquiry. He could have simply asked me to call back at a better time. Avoid him at all costs. PS Don't miss the basement!!!

Pros: Suburb merhandise at all but one shop.

Cons: One very mean, snarly old guy.

There is a lot going on in the Basement of the old Antiquarian- New, young designers and artists are starting to open booths selling their wares. Its becoming a great place to get original pieces at reasonable prices. Hopefully more vendors will fill in the empty spaces.

Antiquarian's Delight is a great place to go for antiques. There are a bunch of vendors located here. You wont believe all the things you can find at the store. There are tons of home accents, clothing, jewelry, furniture and statues. I am a big fan of Elvis and Marilyn Monroe and there were lots of items along those lines to choose from. The prices range from bargain prices to super high, depending on what you are looking and which vendor. It is a great place to spend a few hours you are sure to find something. The building is old and has a great history. Parking is good.

anytime you need an amazing vintage dress or new/old cords- and don't feel like wading through thrift stores, you know you will find something perfect at the antiquarian. jenny's vintage in the back space and dial v for vintage downstairs are both sure shots. and the prices are suprisingly inexpensive. and i love chatting with the vendors.

Great place to find a variety of 20th century collectibles and clothing. The place smells real musty and like mothballs, but it's worth a visit!
