Captain America visits Antique Queens

Antique Queens recently hosted "Captain America" (Allen Mullins-right) as he and dog, Justice continue their walk across the U.S. to gain attention for issues facing homeless veterans. Captain A was hosted by Antique Queens owner, Cody Caldwell (L) and manager, Lanna Caldwell (C). Mullins appeals to state capitol cities as well as some smaller towns as he zig-zags across the country.

Antique Queens hopes citizens will support their local VFW with contributions as a way to help Captain America's mission.

Winter sales throughout the store -- everything from Texas cowhides to Wedgewood china. At Antique Queens our dealers are hosting SALES from 10% to 40% off. Come BROWSE and find that January bargain!!!
A glimpse of our DEALERS. There's so much to see at ANTIQUE QUEENS....

Vintage skates are peeking out of a re-purposed tool box (cabinet) and adorned with vintage riding helmets, and flour bins... captured in all its vintage glory.

Window-shopping in style!. Trends that combine old and industrial are taking off... vintage metal & wire items repurposed and positioned with soft, traditional elements... So DIVINE!

An Antique Queens' vendor, Brenda C, has some intriguing pieces with a grouping of plaster busts, a wreath made of bed springs and a mini wire chair reserved for the "queen".

Oh Jinny! One of Antique Queens' talented dealers creates wonderful visual displays with her vintage finds. This unique combination above -- a handpainted lamp, vintage heater, baby carriage, umbrella grouping are awe-inspiring.

Visit Antique Queens this weekend, we'd love to see you!!
