A while ago I met this delightful older lady named Molly who is an antiques dealer. She told me she was also one of the dealers in Frazer Antiques. At the time I remarked I had always wanted to stop into Frazer Antiques but just never had.
Well today I did. And I will be back.
Frazer Antiques is a bunch of dealers. It is larger inside than it appears from its Lincoln Highway/Lancaster Avenue exterior. For the most part, items are fairly priced. And the condition of most items for sale is very good to excellent. There are a lot of “smalls” and even larger furniture pieces. There is a painted chest in there I am drooling over in the furniture of it all.
It is quite simply an old school antiques store that isn’t too full of itself – you know how some antiques stores are? I get turned off by the antiques stores that either have personnel who size you up when you walk in the door and sniff disdainfully, are over priced, or then there are the dealers who just plain ignore you (like the woman who has the antique shop in the historic Sugartown Village building on Sugartown Road.)
The people at Frazer Antiques could not have been nicer and I had ADD by old stuff as soon as I walked in the door. Things that I love to look at were there a plenty. The things that make my sweet man laugh at me: tole trays, white milk glass chickens, flow through blue and transferware, silver, depression glass of all hues, oil lamps, and fabulous old porcelain. There were also dealers who had some cool textiles like Victorian crazy quilts, and interesting bits of jewelry here and there. And cool bits of framed art and terrific mirrors.
Just like l love my Smithfield Barn, this place is going to stay on my radar. Some of their dealers will be at one of my favorite annual shows – Antiques at Kimberton Show on November 17th and 18th .
Anyway…Frazer Antiques is open 7 days a week 10a.m. to 5p.m. The address is 351 Lancaster Avenue, Frazer, PA 19355 (across the road from Classic Diner). Again, it is a multi-dealer shop. 610-651-8299.
They have been in business for over 30 years. Check them out! Tell them you saw them mentioned on chestercountyramblings.
