A little bit about our store
25 years of buying and selling and passionate collecting has resulted in a storehouse of California wares that is second to none in its depth and variety.
Recognized as an expert in the field, Eric Berg helped spearhead the revival of interest in the golden age of California design crafts and style of the 1920s and 30s. Treasures from the great California potteries and tile makers, tables and chairs and lighting in the classic Spanish Revival and Colonial styles, Monterey, Coronado Del-Ray and Imperial furniture, and, of course, the incredibly diverse and exciting field of California painters fill our warehouse: from the late 19th century to the late twentieth century’s West Coast explosion of creativity, the works represented in our holdings represent an extraordinary range of styles and influences. Mexican art , crafts, and silver are joined by Native American jewelry and artifacts: the Southwest and south of the border are equally strong here. Add to this American folk art and folk furniture, cowboy and western style, Victoriana, industrial, and the great visual poetry of American signs and advertising, and you begin to get the picture.

Early California Antiques Special Sales
You will notice that we feature a Clearance Collection on our Collections page. This particular collection, constantly updated and refreshed, displays items that will automatically receive a 50% discount at checkout. Pretty neat.
But while we’re on the subject of deals, on-line technology is certainly wonderful, but there is one thing we miss from in-store person-to-person contact. That ancient and civilized art of persuasion and mutual accommodation leading to general satisfaction… bargaining. It is one of the pleasures of our trade. So if you find something anywhere on our website and you want to find out if we’ll move a little on the price, get in touch with us directly.
Visiting Early California Antiques Safely
Here’s the drill for that…
Because of the continuing risk of Covid-19 infection in Ventura County, we ask you to make an appointment by calling 805-351-0109 before you come to see us at the warehouse.
This will ensure the safest environment for you as you look around. We mask and follow the current public health guidelines.
Hours And Appointments
We keep regular office hours from Tuesday through Friday from 10-4, so do make sure you get an appointment to visit and view on those days.
We are open to the general public without an appointment every Saturday 10-4 but will be monitoring occupancy within the building. There will also be items on display outside. Our experience has been that all our customers have been mindful and supportive of these measures.
Sundays and Mondays we are closed, but we are happy to be available then by appointment.
The Oxnard Warehouse is at 953 N Rice Avenue and our number is 805-351-0109.

Online, we are business as before. We ship, deliver and can also arrange for pickup at the warehouse. Orders will be shipped once a week.
