I thought this would be a good-sized shop from the reviews but VERY small and little of interest. Enjoyed talking to the clerk but that's about all- short stay.

Unlike some of the other 'antiques' places in the area, most of which also have greater or lesser amounts of brand new, mass-produced Made in China junk, Out of the Past is the one of the very few where 100% of the merchandise is comprised of antiques and vintage. It's a tiny store, but the owner makes unbelievable use of... More

Not much to look at on the outside, but the inside is well-stocked with a nice variety of vintage and antique items. The owner is very friendly and helpful.

I love stopping in Out of the Past Antiques when I'm on vacation. It's chock full of interesting treasures and memorabilia . I alway find a little treasure to bring home. Last year it was some pink depression juice glasses. This year an old stoneware crock. The shopkeeper Jeanne is fun to chat with!

This is a small antique shop that can be easily overlooked. Don't be fooled by the size of the building - there is a huge selection of antiques inside. The selection is very eclectic, ranging from glassware to jewelry to anything and everything imaginable. The owner is very knowledgeable about her inventory and willing to share that with her customers.... More

This is my favorite place to shop in Cape May. With so many tourist shops in this fair city, where I often see the same things I can find in many other places I travel, it's refreshing and fun to have a place to find a truly unique gift, and something fabulous for myself. I always find at least one... More
