Camp Hill Antique Center is one of those place where it is too easy to loose a day. With more than 1000 square meters of space filled with amazing antique items and quirky vintage goods, there is more than enough here to please every kind of shopper. The TART cafe is also on the premises, so a tasty breakfast, and if need be lunch too, can be had here. The historic building used to be the Old Planet cinema, and provides the perfect setting for so many wonderful curios from yesteryear.
The owners of Camp Hill Antique Center lovingly restored this old building to house more than 70 different antique and vintage dealers. With many years of experience in the field, they select vendors to ensure that quality remains high and the range of items is wide spread and eclectic. There is a lot of passion for vintage, and knowledge of antiques under this one roof, so it is the ideal place to go with questions about items, or when in need of inspiration for interior design. The vendors always seem to have plenty of time for customers, and are happy to share stories behind the items they offer for sale.
Dealers create their displays within Camp Hill Antique Center to catch a shopper’s eye and draw them into the wonder of the items they have. Old signage hangs from the walls, wonderful pieces of furniture stand in strategic positions, antique shelves and cabinets house and display smaller antique ornaments, china ware, vases and other curios. There are toy collections, wracks of vintage clothing, old tools, kitchen ware, gardening implements and so much more. The whole building is like one big treasure trove.
It is also advised to keep an eye on the events being hosted by Camp Hill Antique Center. As well as the occasional specialized markets and fairs, there are also workshops on restoration techniques, live music and other cool community projects happening here quite regularly.
