How Quaint

What is How Quaint?

Well, How Quaint is an Antique / Vintage / Primitive store that has "Occasional Sales".

In case your wondering what an "Occasional Sale" is?

Here is the definition:

Occasional (Ə kā'zhƏnʼl)  adj. 1. occurring on a particular occasion 2. acting only on occasions 3. of irregular occurrence; happening now and then 4. being the occasion

Sale (sāl) n. 1. the act of selling; exchange of property for an agreed sum of money 2. opportunity to sell; market 3. the act of offering goods to be sold; offered for purchase

...Now, put those two together and you've got a "sale"  that occurs "occasionally", and in our case the "sale" occurs once a month for 4 days.

The "Occasional Sales" concept has been around for a while now, and a lot of you know how it works, and a lot of you know that it's a lot of fun too!... you see we're not like your average, stuffy run of the mill antique shop that has a lot of the same things sitting around year after year. Instead, what we do, is tear down after each sale and re-setup everything so there is always a new look, a new feel and more important different items every month. Sure we might reuse a piece or two, but for the most part it's different items and totally re-decorated for a totally fresh new look and I should mention too, that all throughout the sales we restock adding items daily.


The front veiw of How Quaint.

How Quaint has an eclectic mix of over 10 dealers that bring their own unique tastes and style of decorating to their spaces, which makes for an exciting experience month after month that you just won't want to miss.

Some of the styles you'll find at How Quaint are antique, vintage, primitive, shabby chic, cottage, rustic and many more.

Some items you might find are old antique cupboards, hutches, dressers, desks, chairs, benches, tables, hand painted furniture, hand made jewelry, pictures, repurposed wares, unique and one of a kind pieces and other antique & vintage home furnishings.

And did I mention that we have some of the best prices around, when we get good deals we like to pass along the savings to our customers too!

So whether you want to be green and save the planet (you know, antique stores were some of the first recyclers) or whether you just like cool old stuff, what ever your reason we look forward to seeing you soon!
