Visit the Haunted Antique Shop

Step into the Haunted Antique Shop, and you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time. You’ll be surrounded by treasures that were loved and cherished by earlier generations, in a historic Craftsman bungalow that still looks like it did a hundred years ago.

You’ll also find yourself surrounded by spirits.

Some are the ghosts of those who treasured the objects in our collection. Some are returning to the house itself because they lived and worked here. And some come through the door with living visitors, joining them in spirit, hoping to reconnect.

The Haunted Antique Shop is a family business, and we see evidence of haunting every single day. Displays rearrange themselves, lights turn on and off, and doors open and close on their own. When we’re in the office or the back room, the front door regularly chimes as if a customer has come in, but when we go to greet them, no one is there — and the door is firmly closed. And on quiet weekend afternoons, when the traffic outside comes to a lull, we hear the sound of horses and carriages on the street outside, just as we would have heard a century ago.

Many of our antiques seem to take on a life of their own. We’ve noticed that most of our dolls are preternaturally playful — so don’t be surprised if one of them wants to follow you home.

We keep our most unusual artifacts in a “Cabinet of Curiosities” in the front parlor. Open the cabinet doors (if you dare) and look inside for an ever-changing array of haunted artifacts, historical oddities, and creepy collectibles. At the Haunted Antique Shop, you’ll always find more than meets the eye.

When you visit the Haunted Antique Shop, you’re guaranteed to find treasured mementos of the past. In the process, you can also access mysteries and messages from the Spirit World. Ask for a tarot reading, astrological consultation, or channeling session.
