“Smalls” and advertising items are two other very popular groups of collectible items that many of the Waukesha Antique Mall dealers carry- ranging from vintage cigarette lighters and pocket knives, to military patches and pins, glass boots and souvenir spoons, advertising items of all types, watches, coins, lovely jewelry and just about everything in between! You are sure to find something you like at a price you can afford.
You can find many “primitives” at the Waukesha Antique Mall! Primitives (sometimes also known as early American items) refers to the handmade furniture and utilitarian household items made before the industrial era of mass production. Most of these pieces were made between the mid 1700’s and early 1800’s and many were built by farmers who were able to make many of the items needed during the winter months from locally sourced wood. These unique items of early Americana are highly prized by collectors today and add charm to any decor.
One of the other popular collectible categories you will find at the Waukesha Antique Mall are Retro and Vintage items. While not technically “antique” these are the items that we remember from our own childhoods or formative teen years. From vintage vinyl record albums and Hot Wheels ™ cars, to fun and funky kitchen décor items and vintage clothing that is unique and stylish again. You may even find yourself in a vintage school yearbook! You will love walking our aisles to find all kinds of vintage items that will take you back to that simpler time and exclaim “I had one of these!”.
