New Shop Opening Soon

Heritage Antiques is a new antique/vintage shop that will be opening on September 14th in downtown Lufkin Texas. We are located at 110 W. Burke Street. You will just be amazed at the awesome talent of dealers that will be in our shop and pictures will be forthcoming. We want this to become your shop, the place you long to visit, the place where you bring friends and can't wait to come back.

We will hopefully eventually have a Tea Room available for your dining pleasure. This was to start originally with the opening of the shop, but we've had a slight set back which will just allow us to take another venue. You will be able to plan special events here, wedding and baby showers, celebrations, or treat yourself to wonderful food. Antiques of all kinds from cottage, primitive, modern to the unusual and a bit of it all will be available on the first floor. We will hopefully open the second floor in time, so please be patient with our construction project there.

Our soft opening is scheduled for September 14, 2009 (more news to follow about this). Our desire is to carry the things you are looking for and can be found in our place. If we don't have what you are looking for, let us know and we will search for it. Our grand opening is scheduled for October 13th (please note date change). Please mark your calendars for our grand opening or if you can stop by before then we'd love to have you. Our hours are Monday through Saturday, 10am - 5:00pm and you can also reach us at 936/676-0110.
