  • Indeed, it is a great spot. Lots of cool stuff to be had.

  • I’ve lived nearby for a while, but never poked in. Anyone have noteworthy hauls to mention?

    • I really like the place and they get a lot of new items frequently.
      I’ve bought two paintings and a bar cart there. I often see things I’m interested in, but I already have a lot of furniture I love an little space for anything new.
      I was tempted to buy a taxidermied mountain lion there, but I just didn’t have the space for it. I’m only sort of kidding.

    • Bought a vintage record player and speakers a few years back — one of those combo dealies that’s a turntable, 8-track, and AM/FM radio. The thing is a beast, and the price was less than what you’d pay for a turntable alone on craigslist. Also a coffee table and chests of drawers.

      Bill’s great. I wish I needed more tables/chairs because he’s always got a quirky set sitting out front.

  • I bought a rolltop desk there about 10 years ago. Every time I sit at it and put my feet up, I feel like Philip Marlow.

  • Mom and Pop is great and Bill is super-helpful! My wife and I got great deals on our dining table and china cabinet there. The selection is just as good (if not better) than some of the secondhand stores around 14th Street, and the prices are much better!

  • Bill is awesome! If you are looking for something specific, let him know and he will help you locate something in the store or keep an eye out for you.

  • These guys are awesome!! And they even have live piano music most weekends (forget if it is sat or sun), but it gives it a great vibe. I live a block away and bought a dresser from them recently. They delivered it to my house for no extra charge. I also got a great picture frame there a while back that they helped me remove the mirror from. A fun place to poke around in and see what treasures you may turn up!
