The Antique Society was founded in 1989 to showcase the wares of a handful of creative dealers and dedicated collectors. It found its home in the beautiful Art Deco building built in the 1930s to house the Henderson Furnace Company. In 1999, the Antique Society won a Historic Preservation Award for its creative use of architecture that honors the history of the local community. Not only is this building the perfect location for an antique store, but its respectful use speaks volumes about the owners' love, respect and passion for history and historic artifacts.
Under the Antique Society's vast 20,000-square-foot, one-story roof, more than 100 dealers set up their stalls and trade their wares. Although dealers are free to come and go, many have been in the same location for 20 years or more. The types of people who trade here run the gamut; there are pickers, junkers, artists, designers. There are seasoned enthusiasts and those who are new to the business. Such a variety of dealers means that all shoppers feel welcome. You do not need to be an antiques expert to strike up a friendly conversation.
Thanks to the friendly atmosphere at the Antique Society, the business has evolved and grown over the years to become the largest antique collective in Sonoma County, California. The store also has a reputation for quality items at affordable prices, which keeps customers coming back for more. On a trip here, visitors can expect to find mid-century modern furniture, artwork, glassware, vases, decorative items, architectural salvage, signs, vintage clothing, magazines, stone carvings, rugs, and more. There is also a bakery and cafe on site, perfect for sitting, recharging, and reflecting on all the wonderful items in the store.
Twice a year, the Antique Society allows its dealers to spill out into the parking lot and host a Parking Lot Sale. At this incredible flea market, the usual dealers, plus a few additions, take over the outdoor space and celebrate all things vintage and collectible. Of course, the store is still open on these dates, so antique enthusiasts can make a full day of shopping.
