WHAT’S UP DOWNTOWN: Not Just AntiquesCelebrating a decade of business in downtown Las Vegas, Not Just Antiques Mart is a family-owned business run by the dynamic mother/daughter team of Renee and Jessica Poole. The store, downtown’s only antique and collectible estate liquidation warehouse, accepts items on consignment and provides complete estate liquidation services and appraisals.
An eclectic collection of various household items, including furniture, accessories, lamps, Waterford crystal and fine china, as well as costume jewelry, dolls, Hummel figurines and original art, are among the store’s offerings. The impressively sized, 12,000 sq. ft. warehouse is open throughout the week and hosts special monthly auctions and flea markets – all for especially unique collectables. Whether you’re looking for a perfect small dish repurposed as a soap dish or a vintage brooch for your jacket, Not Just Antiques is a place to explore.
“It is fascinating to see what people have collected over the years, and to let them know what has value and why.” said Renee Poole. “It’s also fun to help people find vintage objects that can be used in new ways or help them add to their collections.”
The next monthly auction in conjunction with a craft and vintage flea market is on Sunday, Mar. 30, at 11 a.m.
Also, Not Just Antiques Mart recently debuted its second floor, 3,000 sq. ft. “Designer and Artists Hub,” which offers studio space for rent to local artists, shabbers (shabby chic-ers), re-purposers and crafters. This additional space offers local artists and designers the opportunity to rent affordable studio space where they can sell their products and host special workshops.
