A walk down the endless aisles and through the maze of rooms, nooks and crannies at Antiques on Main unearths a veritable treasure trove of items from past eras, staged with contemporary items. Owner Loretta Bryan Nosal calls the vibe “eclectic”—a trend that’s currently quite popular. With 70 vendors displaying their pieces on consignment within the shop, she says there’s something to accommodate everyone’s taste. “Our customers like to shop here because we’re not strictly antiques; we have a wide variety of merchandise, which stimulates their creativity.”

The staff at Antiques on Main can show patrons how to make something old look new. A prime example of this is the rustic style, a look that is en vogue, especially with brides. “Pinterest has exploded this business,” says Bryan Nosal. “We have many brides who shop here for accessories for their rustic-themed weddings.”

Bryan Nosal says customers appreciate the friendly service at Antiques on Main, provided by her “incredible, talented employees who take pride in what they do.” She also notes that merchandise is washed or cleaned before being put on sale and that contributes to the store’s clean, well-organized environment.
