Quintessential Antiques

Perhaps because they are only open the first seven days of each month from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Quintessential Antiques feels fresh on every visit. Owner Andy Culbertson and his parents, JoEllen and Louis, each follow his or her own collecting interests. Thus, Odd Fellows robes and overshot coverlets mingle with classic antiques such as treenware and ironstone, along with more industrial pieces like tractor umbrellas and massive enameled signs. The ever-changing displays are eclectic, but never junky. Serious collectors can happily spend hundreds on Shaker pieces or mahogany bureaus, but the modestly moneyed can pick up some glass buttons, cartes de visite or other ephemera for a buck or two.
