Visited Antique Emporium while away on our Honeymoon. It is one of the best antique shops we've ever been to. So many things to look at, you'll get lost! Love the pirate fortune telling machine, wish I could have it.

A great shop with a lot of history. You’ll get lost with the amount of antiques they have in the store. They let you wander around and don’t bother you or pressure to sell, very good experience an recommend visiting.

This is a massive multi-level store chockablock full of all kinds of treasures. You could literally spend hours fossicking through this collector’s heaven and lose all track of time. It would be very difficult to walk out empty handed.
