About Valentine Antique Gallery
Valentine Antique Gallery was custom-built by collectors John and Jo Valentine. John collects coins, trains and other toys, some of which are from his younger days. Jo just recently began collecting with a strong interest in hand painted porcelain and art glass. After visiting many antique shops and taking notes on each as viewed through the eyes of a collector and dealer, a plan developed to construct a secure building offering a more favorable environment for both dealers and collectors. John, a masonry contractor by trade, over-saw the construction of the building while Jo undertook the business end of the gallery.
Valentine Antique Gallery is a 12,000 square foot fully-carpeted, climate-controlled, multi-dealer showplace offering a wide selection of quality antiques and vintage items for the novice as well as the seasoned collector. Furniture and larger items are displayed in room-light settings and groupings while small items are displayed in lighted glass cases for easy viewing.
Since its opening in 2003, Valentine Antique Gallery has expanded its service to include internet sales through an on-line gallery, eBay auctions and an eBay store front. Valentine Antique Gallery recently began accepting items from non-dealers for individual consignment. It currently has over 70 antique dealers and consignors meaning fresh merchandise is regularly added to the inventory.
