Antiques, Toy Collectibles & More Come in from the cold and explore


Every so often, you find a special store that reminds you that there is a child in us all. That is exactly what you will find at Antiques, Toy Collectibles and More on West Shore Road - a tiny shop with a big dose of nostalgia. This corner shop is the ultimate treasure box, packed from floor to ceiling (literally) with a wide array of trinkets, treasures and "one-of-a-kinds". As owner Anna Maria Tropea says: "It's a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. There is something here for everyone."

Lately, Anna has lost a little bit of her usual pep as her life has been preoccupied with the care of her chronically ill feline friends, "Mickey" and "Kitty". Both cats are in their senior years and have had a rough winter. Their mounting medical costs have left Anna feeling the pinch - not just in her heart, but in her pocketbook. As an incentive for her customers, and as a way to put a little extra aside to offset her many expenses, Anna is actually offering up to 50% off many of her own personal items here at Antiques, Toy Collectibles & More. Furthermore, she is giving 10% off all merchandise for those who put a "penny in the kitty" for her kitties. Come in today and peruse through this memorable store - you never know what you will find.

If you are a fan of Downtown Abbey, the popular British television show on PBS, perhaps you may want to have a tea party with fellow watchers. Here at Antiques, Toy Collectibles & More, Anna has porcelain and silver teapots and teacups - and even demitasse cups to sip from with your pinky extended!

Antiques, Toy Collectibles and More, now celebrating its 8th year in business, has a broad selection of toys, children's picture and comic books (almost all are 50% off!), doll house furniture, distinctive jewelry pieces, used DVDs and classic old magazines, as well as unique pieces of glassware, china, and silver.

If you collect cards, you will also find a large stock of Magic Cards, Pokeman, and Yu-gi-oh cards. Anna showcases a huge wall of new and used die cast vehicles such as Matchbox and Hotwheels - all at her unbeatable prices.

Stop by and check out Anna's "frequent buyer points program." While only checks and cash are accepted here, Anna offers lay-aways with just a small deposit.
