If you are about ready to make plans for summer vacation, make sure Alton, Illinois is on your radar. We have so much to offer here! Our shop is constantly changing merchandise and there is something for everyone. Keep updated on the AltonAntiqueDistrict.com website, and ...finally I have my blog working again. Keep checking in!
Where has this year gone? It certainly was eventful for us. And needless to say, we are ready to start a new year. The shop reopened on October 3rd after being closed all summer. A fire will do that to you! We are still reorganizing and rebuilding but it is most exciting to realize that our customers are loyal and missed us! The shop would be nothing without them. So, with that said--Merry Christmas to all!!!
Until Next time,
The shop is coming along nicely--after the fire. It has a total new look and we are getting excited! No pictures to show yet, but mark your calendars--we plan to reopen on Saturday, October 3, 2015. Lots to do before that..but you'll have to come and see us. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
Until Next Time,
I'm sorry to say that our shop is temporarily closed for business. Sunday morning were awakened with a call to report to our shop immediately. A 911 emergency call had been placed that smoke was coming out of the shop. Well...that's right. It was smoke alright. We were broken into, robbed, and then set on fire. I can't tell you the feelings we have right now. The numbness is still there, anger, confusion and what a mess. Terrible smoke damage. I don't know how long the cleanup process will take. I have received phone calls and emails from everywhere---the kind words, support and offers for help are overwhelming. We are at a loss for words. Our shop is approaching 29 years in business and nothing like this has ever happened to us. Please don't forget us---we will be back, we just don't know when. Thanks for all the past years of business, and like I said...we will be back.
P.S. I can't believe I'm writing this.
Until next time,
