In The Begining There was a Really Lot of Old Stuff and ...

...  an empty warehouse belonging to a family business that sold fabrics and crafts.  The empty warehouse building was next to the family owned store,  One day Betty, a nice lady who worked for the family styling add photography suggested that the building might make a good antique mall.

The family was tired of looking for reliable tenants for their warehouse and a dream was born.  Betty was a long time antique dealer in the Salt Lake area.  She invited many of her friends to join in the venture and after hours and hours of work, planning, painting, gathering, building and decorating, Treasures Antiques was born early in May of 1998.
The building on the left was the original Treasures Antiques.  The one on the right was the craft and fabric store.  As the antique business boomed, it eventually consumed the second building as well.  The net result is two antique malls, with separate accounting systems and a total of 22,000 square feet of antique, vintage and collectible goods.  Between the two stores there are 65 different dealers who are out there scouting for treasures to make you smile.

This is a closer shot of the south store.

Here we see the sign that bids all come to discover!!  The sign on the bottom was necessary when the frontage road was variously closed from one end or the other, with detours in between.  We have managed to stay open every day of the construction, and with the exits now open, and no detours, there is no excuse to miss one more day of shopping pleasure.

Please keep watching this site, as we will be spotlighting great new finds as they come into the store, as well as a variety of dealers along with their specialties.

We will also announce special sales and events here.  We even plan to have antique item give-aways as our following grows, so be sure to sign on and follow this blog for fun, entertainment and enrichment!
