Not exactly what you’d envision as an antique dealer in Key West… or is it? Welcome to Key West’s antique ‘Antique Shop’. In this unassuming building (sits beside a residential home) you’ll find an eclectic collection of unusual conversation pieces varied from the standard run-of-the-mill dime-a-dozen $5 T-shirts shops that line Key West’s souvenir central better known as Duval Street.
Yes, it looks like an abandoned building but it’s not. Yes, they’re closed more than they’re open. Yes, they open late and close earlier than almost any other business in ‘Old Town’… but I guess that’s the way they like it, as long as they pay rent. Hmmm, maybe they don’t have rent and that’s why they can do whatever they want to about their open hours! 🙂
This is one beautiful antique building to me! Look at the right hand addition portion with the trellis as a tree crawls all the way up and upon its roof, its oceanic divers porthole window as seen above in the featured photo. Photographic splendor at its finest!
You can find this quant uniquely shaped antique ‘Antique Shop’ near the corner of Greene Street & Elizabeth Street in the US’s southernmost city of Key West. The only problem is that you may not find them open! 🙂
