There is no access to this store other than via stairs. Once you get to the top of the stairs, it is several rooms. Stuff is crammed everywhere. There is no organization to most rooms (which have been told are "booths" for vendors). It is...More

Could have spent hours there, from room to room looking at all the antic and interesting stuff they have, but we ran out of time. This is a great antic shop, with a lot of history. Definitely a must do when in Arcadia.

It's always a pleasure to visit the Opera House for the history and treasures. This isn't exactly the best place on Oak Street to find a really valuable Bonafide antique, but it's great for "junk" pickers that don't want to spend a lot of money....More

Like most of Arcadia which has been repurposed to an antique heaven, so too has this early 1900 Opera House. The original stage is still in tact, on hand are the early film projectors with which 30s/40s movies were shown here, and original seats. Most...More

We thought we couldn't miss the opportunity to see the space rebuilt in 1906. It was full of a wide range of antiques and stuff. It lacked high quality items with mostly items of regular American Life--not a whole lot different than the 20 plus...More

This is a great place to visit, even if you aren't an antique collector. The entrance could be an obstacle for many people. It is a very steep and long walk up stairs. If you can do it, iy is worth the effort. Many interesting...More

Wonderful, Wonderful Place. We loved it, James I believe was his name, answered all of our questions, even gave us a little bit of history. This was our second time here and I would definitely return.
