Welcome To The New Early California Antiques
After 26 wonderful years in LA we decided it was time for a change, so we up and moved our store to Santa Barbara and opened a warehouse in Oxnard. And, while we were changing locations, we decided to make it a lot easier to shop us on-line as well.
What hasn’t changed is our continuing immersion in the arts and crafts of Old California, Mexico and Spain, as well as the great California potteries (Malibu and Catalina and Bauer to name a few). Our abiding passion for Monterey, and all the Monterey style furniture makers of the Twenties and Thirties, is matched by our love for the Spanish Revival, Spanish Colonial and the Arts and Crafts movements, all of which are richly represented in the collection.
Our gallery of West Coast painters is without equal, from plein air to studio portraits to mid-century abstracts and the coveted WPA style of the Great Depression. We also specialize in the finest examples of American illustrative and commercial arts as well as vintage signage and our vast trove of posters. Our movie posters feature American, European, and, gloriously, treasures of the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema. We must also mention our silver, both Native American and Mexican, jewelry and housewares.
Whether you are an old or new customer, collector, decorator, or simply a nester, we invite you to make us your destination. We’re open seven days a week at the showroom on State Street in Santa Barbara in the vital Arlington District.
Our Early California Antiques Warehouse
Our warehouse, right off the 101 freeway, can be visited Wednesdays and Thursdays, the last weekend of every month and by appointment.
And browse the new website. If you have any questions, feel free to call us.
Our long experience working with decorators, architects and production designers have made us the professionals’ go-to store for more than two decades, and our continuing relationships with estate sale managers and our colleagues and friends in the trade (and the many road trips we take, from Oregon to the Southwest), give us a breadth and reach second to none. We think we have the most interesting client-base on the coast.
If you wish, do sign up for our newsletter, so we can keep you abreast of our sales, new items, and uniquely curated collections.
