Overview

Our 17th Season! Now hibernating, will re-open sometime April 2018 weekends, then all summer. Described by Country Living magazine as "a love-at-first-sight wonderland of oddball collectibles, vintage clothing, and objects d'art," Mystery Spot Antiques is part store, part museum, part odditorium, and a whole lot of fun! Named for Homer & Langley, the infamous Collyer Brothers, this obsessive and artistic "Shrine to Clutter" is packed to the rafters with unusual antiques, tons of estate-fresh vintage clothing, 1,000's of used records & killer vinyl, found objects, mid-century, OOP art books, and downright oddities such as the Creepy Doll Exhibit, Petey the Petrified Piranha, and Desdemona, the Devil Girl of Phoenicia. Heck, even when are doors aren't open, customers are welcome to dig through our dollar record bins and our famous YARD SALE IN A BOX on the front porch, with an honor money drop at your service.

This is quite the haven for the eccentric and the antique lover. With a very cluttered and divided layout, it can be very overstimulating and it can take a long time to browse properly. I didn't get a chance to look carefully as the place...More

The Mystery Spot is a unique antiques store, with vintage clothing, toys, shoes, household items, records, and more. As you comb through the many rooms, you never know exactly what you might find. Definitely worth a trip to Phoenicia!

'Antiques' is too boring a word to use in a description of the Mystery Spot. Imagine all the stuff in all of the garage sales that ever were. Then imagine selecting the creme-de-la-creme of all that stuff (well, no automotive stuff or tools)--every one in...More
