A Variety Of Antiques, Collectibles

Advertisement

Old saddles and hats, well-worn tin plates and cups, horsehair ropes -- these are the trappings of the Rim Country's western heritage -- and they can be found at a number of antique and collectible shops in the Payson and Pine areas.

Rustic or refined furnishings, old household linens, common and unusual treasures -- these are some of the other finds awaiting shoppers.

Novice collectors and old hands will find treasures in the antique and collectible shops around the Rim Country. The owners of Pine Country Antiques and Vintage are collectors too, and can share their knowledge.

Those looking for the thrill of the hunt or just the right, storied accent piece or furnishing will not be disappointed. Some Rim Country proprietors will even offer to search elsewhere if they don't have what you want in their shops.

The 22 venues are as varied as the inventories. And the inventories are mind-boggling, from massive buffets and bedsteads to delicate porcelain trinket boxes.

One of the community's newest additions to the Rim Country's antiques and collectibles industry is Frontier Market Place, 404 S. Beeline Highway, Payson.

"I don't want people to feel crowded when they shop, clutching their purse in front of them and keeping their arms and elbows tight against their sides (for fear of knocking something over)," said owner Carol Barr. So, she keeps her space open for easy strolling. "That way customers can see a piece and imagine it in their home."

If you have visited antique and collectible shops in the Rim Country in the past, you will find some changes this summer. A few shops have closed, others have consolidated and some have moved to new, larger locations.

The following is a list of the shops in the area, their locations and telephone numbers. Hours vary, so give them a call first.
