I thoroughly enjoy the window displays for this store as I pass on the bus. Inside, there's lots to look at, all outside my preferred price range. If you like antique as opposed to thrift, vintage as opposed to used, this might be the place for you.

To review this wonderful furniture/antique shop is tricky, as very major international currency rates determine what you will find there. Example, if I wish tio buy a men's chest of drawers, in perfect condition, made in England circa 1930, it would probably cost 700 british pounds. Which as of September 2007 would run $1400 US dollars. The friendly proprietor goes to the UK constantly, steering away from the more expensive London houses towards stores and dealers in the English north. The miracle is, despite the currency, he still comes away with good stuff.

And our house is stacked with it. Prices are not cheap, but again, in England 2007 a cup of Starbucks coffee will set you back $8 or 9 US dollars. I believe this business should be supported, and I'm sorry that my limited finances and the rising value of the British pound have meant that I can rarely buy from them again.

Pros: Wonderful euro-centric stuff

Cons: expensive due to the collapsing dollar - not Antika's fault
