Treasures the Second Time Around

If you enjoy visiting antique and consignment stores, you are in luck: there are three nice ones on Wenatchee Avenue, only a few blocks from each other. The stores each offer slightly different items, so it’s well worth your time to take a look at all three.

Spruce and Willow Home

You may find it easiest to start at Spruce and Willow Home at 133 N. Wenatchee Avenue as the first one in the row of the three stores. Parking is easy one block downhill at the Convention Center if you cannot find a spot on Wenatchee Avenue.

Spruce and Willow is an explosion of items, mostly old with some newer ones in the mix. The shelves, floors and even the ceiling are stocked with tempting purchases for dish hunters, figurine collectors and gift shoppers.

You may find a new light fixture for your study, the endearing Sock Monkey waiting for a new home, good quality second-hand clothing and purses and jewelry to put together a complete new outfit. There are figurines and paintings, pillows, vases and toys to choose from.

Spruce and Willow also sells mineral paints in case you are in the mindset of giving a piece of furniture a fresh coat of color. While they have some furniture pieces for sale, the store mostly sells décor for the home.

This home decorator’s temptation is host to over 30 regular vendors with the addition of people bringing in goods on consignment.

Their hours are: Monday-Saturday 10-6, Sunday 12-4.

Antique Mall of Wenatchee

This store is the middle one, on 11 N. Wenatchee Avenue. You will easily spot it by the old horse wagon perched up on its roof. Parking right in front may be a bit difficult at this centrally located store, so be prepared to walk a short distance.

Be prepared to spend some time in this maze-like, three-story antique mall. Not only is it spacious, but packed full of everything imaginable, from old sports equipment to vinyl records, dishes and much more.

You may find some medals to add to a collection, a beautiful glass vase for your dining table or a golf club or two to send the ball soaring.

Besides décor and collectibles, Antique Mall of Wenatchee also has a good selection of used books, sheet music and old magazines.

Their hours are: Monday-Thursday 10-5, Friday-Saturday 10-6, Sunday 12-4.

Simply Unique

Simply Unique is the third and last one, but not the least one by any means. Located on 201 S. Wenatchee Avenue, it usually has some parking spots available right in front of the store.

This store offers the wares of over 30 vendors plus consignment items.

 You can find beautiful pieces of furniture, some refurbished and some brand new, as well as décor for most any style of a home. They focus on furniture, and it isn’t surprising to find complete dining and sofa sets on the premises.

Simply Unique lives up to its name by displaying items that are unique, but also of quality. How about an old carousel horse for your yard, or a brass coffee table from Turkey for your living room – you just may find them at Simply Unique.

Their hours are: Tuesday-Thursday 10-6, Friday-Saturday 10-5, Sunday 12-5.
