Find Treasures at a Local Antique Shop
Did you know that the history of antique collecting can be traced backed to the sixteenth century?
That was when the private collections of English and European rarities flourished, and ever since, antiques have been preserved across the globe.
Today antiquing is a popular hobby, and whether you're searching for sculptures, tapestries, or European furniture, you'll find these things and more at one of these nearby shops:
August Antiques began from humble beginnings in 1992 when it occupied the first floor of a 1920s building. Within a year, the owners realized they needed more space and relocated to what was once the Heights Gulf Service station. The inventory constantly changes, and many of the pieces come from the New England states as well as upstate and western New York. Items may include lamps, hutches, and vases.
With more than forty dealers and over ten thousand square feet of shopping space, it's no wonder that Heights Antiques was called the best store of its kind by the Houston Press. It can take a few hours to fully explore, and the knowledgeable staff will gladly answer any questions. The selection may include things such as butcher block tables, English oak coffers, and French Brittany cabinets.
