Antique to Chic is one of those shops on Center Street where treasures are found!  The store is exactly what the name embodies- carrying everything from new gift items to antique jewelry and furniture.  New to old and everything in between is how Judy Munzi and Gloria Costrino, two of the seven owners, described the store.  Several seasoned vendors came together in 2013 to form the co-op, now one of three antique stores in the Village of Lewiston and part of a growing antique trail that is blossoming in Niagara County.  When customers visit one antique store, they are usually visiting others, on the hunt for their "find"!

 

Customers love the eclectic mix of inventory at Antique to Chic that changes every day.   The owners love showcasing the variety and helping customers find the perfect item.  Signature items are beautifully presented in the award winning window display enticing customers to come take a look! Once inside, carefully curated vignettes of old to new items lead you throughout the store. Continue on right out to the backyard, where larger items and outdoor furniture are on display. Most items are sold by the owners, with a small number of consignment items to keep the inventory changing.

 

With several tourism driven initiatives that have taken place the past year, Antique to Chic has not only seen an increase in customer traffic but has also taken note of where they are coming from.  They have had customers from all over the world! Everyone is looking for something different; however "useful" items seem to sell the best! 

 

Small Business Saturday is an important day for Antique to Chic as it signifies the start of the holiday shopping season.  It is generally a busy day at the store, with regular customers stopping by to say hi and show support, and new customers out to enjoy the day and enjoy walking the Village.  "The day is focused on the community, and that is what we like about it," said Judy. "People get out and patronize the brick and mortar retailers, as well as restaurants.  Small Business Saturday has really made people think about how their dollar spent."

 

Antique to Chic is located at 536 Center Street in the Village of Lewiston.  To celebrate Small Business Saturday, they will include refreshments, a free drawing for an Antique to Chic gift certificate, special sale items, many one of a kind items and gift ideas.  Business hours on November 25th will be extended from 9am - 6pm.

 

Photos of items and special promotions are posted daily on Antique to Chic's Facebook page. Customers can also call (716) 754-2277 for updates or inquiring and on the search for specific items.  Small Business Saturday is a great way to stop by and see friends at the store, while supporting a business that adds to the charm, history and unique character of the Village of Lewiston.
