A FEW PHOTOS OF OUR FIRST FLOOR

Remember... our hours are 11AM - 5PM (sometimes later) Monday through Saturday


We have nearly 4,000 square feet of space on our first floor, nearly 8,000 square feet on the second floor, for a total of almost 12,000 square feet of space devoted to all manner of antiques, collectibles, and souvenirs. You can wonder around our shop for hours.



We sell (and buy) coins, vintage currency, jewelry, Civil War and World Wars artifacts, glassware of every description, antique guns, swords, knives, (many) dug bottles, scarce and very rare first edition and signed books, antique furniture, clocks, artwork, photographs, postcards and trade cards and tokens, stained glass, vintage documents, antique tools, etc., etc.



Much of our merchandise comes from local estates and auctions, thus many items have a Mississippi or Louisiana connection.



If it's old and collectible, we love it.


We also have a large selection of stained glass. A few pieces can be seen in the photo below.






Our hours are 11AM - 5PM Monday through Saturday; closed Sundays.

WHY BUY MODERN "JUNK" WHEN YOU CAN BUY FINE ANTIQUE FURNITURE THAT WILL HOLD ITS VALUE?



This is but a tiny sampling of some of the magnificent antique furniture we have on hand.






Antique furniture will hold its value. In many cases it will not only maintain its original purchase price, but actually increase in value as time passes.

11" CIVIL WAR UNION ARTILLERY CANNON BALL


This isn't the largest cannon ball fired into Vicksburg by the invading horde, but it's close (13" was the largest in diameter). It weighs about 150 pounds, and is fused, thus it is classified as a shell or a cased shot, depending upon whether or not it has thin or thick walls and does or does not contain lead or iron shot. $650, first floor.

CONFEDERATE, STATE & BANK OBSOLETE CURRENCY

Obsolete notes are a very desirable collectible; they sell very quickly. Whereas we once had a large selection of obsoletes, our inventory has been sold to near depletion. We do expect to acquire a small collection in the near future.

WOOD AND COAL BURNING STOVES & HEATERS


With the approach of winter you may want to consider the addition of a wood or coal burning cast iron stove or heater to your abode. Cook on one, or merely use it for heating your home or cabin. We have several.



We also have several electric and gas-fired space heaters at reduced prices.

REMINGTON ARMS AMMUNITION/GUN/FIREARMS COLLECTIBLE


If you are into firearm collectibles, this may be one you can't resist. It's a 1970s case which was used for the sale of Remington ammunition at Gore's Hardware Co. here in Vicksburg. It's in very good condition and very heavy. The sliding glass fronts are all intact (glass fronts are not shown in this photo - they are lying inside on a shelf). Included are a couple of 1970s price lists for Remington ammo. The prices are quite a bit different from what we see today. Priced at only $150.00, the case is sure to enhance any firearm enthusiast's collection.
