Summer is winding down…those wonderful evenings on the porch or patio will soon come to an end…
Memories of trips
with hours or days…
to read… … and relax… will soon be gone.
Now it’s time to call the kiddos from play…
fill up the cookie jars…. ….
clear off those desks….
find some healthy lunch recipes….
get ready for art projects coming home….
and dig out the books….cause it’s BACK TO SCHOOL!!
Have a cup of coffee or tea….
Come see what’s on Summer Clearance and what’s NEW at the Oregon Street Antique Mall…See you soon!!
Kate and all the Oregon Street vendors!!

This time last year, my sweet husband and I stood on a ledge overlooking a river of churning rapids. Not literally, but when reviewing our choices, that’s what it felt like. Should we close the antique store that had occupied one side of our lovely vintage downtown building in Redding? Or, should we step, well, more like plunge, into potentially perilously deep water? Would we float or sink?
We’d never been in the retail business, and we didn’t know much about antiques, but we did know about business. We’ve started several…some failed, others muddled along and a few proved to be amazingly profitable. So, hand in hand, we jumped…committing to keeping the delightful antique store afloat.
We started with 10 dealers…and lots of uncertainty.
One year later, we have a full house…with 60 dealers and a beautiful new O Street Gallery that has been embraced by the art community! It’s been an amazing year! We are most grateful to our original 10 dealers who stuck with us, the new dealers who signed up with us and the Redding community and beyond, for their continued support. THANK YOU!!
Throughout the month of April…our official first month of operation…we’ll be having specials to celebrate! Free Teapot Banks with a purchase, treasure hunts, drawings, and of course, sales in many booths.
We hope you’ll stop by and celebrate with us! Thank you for your business!
Phil and Kate
